Life is difficult. Every day you face a thousand intangible threats to your mental well-being and self-esteem. Your brain reacts, creating a collection of sensations which we call anxiety. Sometimes you feel hopeless-there's no way out of trouble and you feel yourself becoming more withdrawn, isolated and depressed. Or, perhaps living with the person you love is impossible. Talking things over with family or friends can help. But you may have reasons why that's not appropriate or you need specific specialist help. Then is the time to speak with an impartial, trained, professional, in confidence.

I have had experiences with all ranges of client groups and different work settings. I ensure your taken actions are manageable, realistic and sustainable.
