I have experience counselling adults, older adults and young people suffering with anxiety and panic attacks, bereavement, abuse, loss, depression, personal development issues, Chronic fatigue syndrome/ME, self esteem issues, identity issues, men's issues, relationship issues, redundancy, stress, anger management and work related issues.
I am a Psychodynamic Counsellor working in Hampshire. If you are experiencing issues with anxiety , depression, stress, bereavement, abuse, relationship issues or a lack of confidence, I offer counselling where together we can get to the bottom of your difficulties and help you to understand yourself more clearly. Psychodynamic Counselling can provide you with a confidential, non-judgemental 'space' to reflect upon and work through the issues you are facing. Counselling requires commitment from us both, but gradually, over time, it can be a rewarding way to enable you to manage the issues that life throws your way.

I work with clients with various challenges including; stress, anxiety , self-esteem/confidence, anger, relationship/work issues, depression and bereavement (loss).
The last few years have been a real strain for most people. Perhaps you don't feel right, your relationships might be suffering, you may feel exhausted from trying to maintain a positive side. Maybe you keep doing the same things over and over but cannot seem to break the cycle. I believe we all have the capacity to help ourselves through much of this but, in an increasingly complex and busy life where we are ‘always on’, there often feels like there's little time available to focus on 'me'. Counselling gives you the valuable space and time to find your way in a supported and non-judgmental environment.

Do you struggle with anxiety , poor self-esteem, relationship difficulties, or other emotional issues? Do you sometimes find it difficult to articulate what the problem is or feel that words are just not enough to express it? It might be that Dramatherapy is right for you. Dramatherapy is a form of psychological therapy/psychotherapy in which all of the performing arts are utilised within the therapeutic relationship (BADth). It is particularly helpful when you struggle to articulate what the problem is or when words are just not enough to express it. Clients do not need to have previous experience or skills in acting, theatre or drama, it is not about performing well or being good at acting, rather it is about making use of dramatic tools to explore, address and make sense of troubling issues. I am Marta Paglioni, a Dramatherapist clinical practitioner registered with HCPC and full member of BADth (British Association of Dramatherapists). - Cover image from: <a href="http://www.freepik.com">Designed by Freepik</a>)-

Speaking about your concerns in counselling can help you to understand yourself better, learn strategies and ways of managing anxiety and depression, explore and improve relationships, prepare you to cope with life-changing circumstances, explore choices to make decisions, to make changes in your life and improve mental wellbeing.
Are you feeling unhappy, sad, depressed, angry or anxious? Do you feel run ragged by life’s daily demands but are unable to get off the merry-go-round? Perhaps you are struggling with lack of direction or making decisions. It may be that you are unsure how you are feeling but you know something does not feel quite right, and you need help to explore what is going on for you. Maybe you feel unheard by others or you are struggling in a relationship or with all of your relationships both personal and professional. Is a past life event interfering with your present life?

I have a particular interest in working with addictions, trauma, and anxiety disorders and as such these are my main areas of expertise. In addition to working privately, I also worked in an NHS Addictions Service until recently, predominantly with alcohol and illicit drugs, and as a result much of my work was with people with complex mental health needs.

Anxiety Counsellors

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other popular forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
