Is your anxiety impacting your quality of life? Are you beginning to think your way of coping is doing you more harm than good? Maybe you don’t want to open up family or friends, due to feelings of shame, or your uncertainty as to how they will react. It’s hard keeping it all in and can sometimes become unbearable. That’s when counselling can help.
I am here to listen to you. I will sit with you, and support you with compassion and without judgement while you explore what’s going on in your life. You will find a warm welcome and a safe space where we can work together while you unravel and bring to light whatever is on you mind and work out the best way to move forwards.
Building healthy coping strategies, increasing self-awareness and feelings of self-worth can help give you the confidence to start living the life you want. You can email me if you would like to know a bit more, ask any questions about my practice, or arrange an introductory phone or video call to meet and see if the way I work will suit you at this time.
A volte può sembrare che non ci sia nessuno a cui rivolgersi, nessuno con cui parlare dei propri sentimenti ed emozioni difficili o confusi, specialmente se sei diventato socialmente isolato in un paese che non è il tuo, lontano dalla famiglia a causa del COVID, senza poter tornare a casa facilmente come prima.
Io ho vissuto vent'anni in Italia, e capisco quanto e' difficile a volte vivere in un paese che non è il tuo. Qui troverai un caloroso benvenuto in uno spazio dove ti ascolterò profondamente, con compassione e senza giudizio. Insieme possiamo portare alla luce qualunque cosa ti preoccupa, ed esplorarla con calma.
Offro consulenze nelle Highlands online o telefonicamente. Questo significa maggiore flessibilità sugli appuntamenti e il vantaggio di non dover percorrere lunghe distanze. Se vuoi saperne di piu o organizzare una prima consulenza gratuita, puoi inviarmi un 'e-mail.
