I understand from personal experience how poor mental health can be just as debilitating as a physical disability. I also understand how talking therapies can bring about positive change and personal growth. I myself have felt lost, alone and in the dark; John Lennon once said “How can I go forward when I don’t know which way I’m facing?”. This is something I feel many people are likely to relate to. Having experienced therapy and been empowered to make positive changes in my life, I have been able to find a new sense of freedom and independence. This is what inspired me to become a professional counsellor and psychotherapist.

Is life in general getting you down and you can't figure it out? Or you know the reason why you're not happy but need to talk it through in order to unjumble everything and think straighter? Do people around you seem to be happy and getting on with life, but you can't? These are just a few of the things I can help you with, in confidence, talking to someone who is truly listening and wants to help. You don't have to feel alone in the confusion.
