Do you feel ripped apart and shaken to your core? You don't want to be a burden to friends and can't talk to family, it is all so overwhelming. The deepest pit of despair and hurt, mixed emotions, anguish, anger, confusion, barely coping with intense non-stop life changes. Loss of family, partner or treasured friends, sudden or chronic terminal illness, loss of the person you used to be, ageing, guilty lifestyle, fear of a new job and moving, or the prickling heartache from loss of your pet. You don’t even have the strength to take the next step, to pull yourself through while trying to reach your old self. You need a safe space.

There is hope for Angry Men! “The little things irritate me into arguing! I want to stop…” MEN and ANGER: A misconception – “I am just a fiery person, I can’t change that”. Not true! Are you getting irritable and angry at even the littlest of things? Do you drink to try and shift away from those feelings? Is it impacting your relationships? Are you arguing more than you really want? The longer this goes on the more likely it is your relationship will irreversibly break down. You don’t want to end up with heartbreak, loneliness or a broken home, only seeing your family at the weekend?

I am an experienced Child, Young Person and Parent Psychotherapist based in Harrogate. There are times when we can struggle emotionally. For children and young people it is often difficult to understand their own emotions or be able to express their thoughts. Sometimes this leads to overwhelming and confusing feelings, with behaviours that seems stuck, often resulting in low self-esteem and struggles with peer or family relationships. Individual counselling or creative therapy in a safe supportive space to explore emotions, feelings and develop an understanding of our thoughts can build communication skills and emotional resilience.

Sometimes life can become too overwhelming because of difficult events or relationships, both old or current. You may be struggling with anxious feelings or have become stuck in unhelpful behaviours as you try to manage your world. This can become a lonely and disempowering place. People come to therapy because they recognise these thoughts or strategies are limiting their lives. My work is humanistic in approach with a person-centred focus; this means that I will listen and value what you share and not be judgemental or directive. I build empathic therapeutic relationships that enable you to feel safe to share your emotions.
