About

Struggling to cope with negative emotions can feel very isolating and, by the nature of some problems, guilt and shame can make us feel stigmatised and prevent us reaching out for support even when its not our fault. People come to counselling for all kinds of reasons from childhood trauma to life events as adults such as divorce, bereavement and stress and what they all have in common is a desire to feel better and begin to enjoy life. Some people find they use alcohol or drugs in an attempt to cope with their feelings but inventively this creates more problems.
It can be hard to work out how to improve your situation on your own as, negative thinking patterns and behaviour patterns, can keep us locked in the same cycles of feeling overwhelmed and struggling to be optimistic about life. CBT helps clients identify these negative patterns and provides effective ways to make positive changes and reach your goals.
Many people feel nervous about contacting a counsellor and its important to feel comfortable, safe and not judged. To help clients understand how counselling can help, what to expect and how it works I offer initial phone and face to face consultations free of charge so you can feel assured you are taking the right steps to make positive change in your life
