Do you feel depressed , overwhelmed, anxious or stuck regarding how things change? I love working with people and offering space, expertise and empathy to find clarity in a moment when everything seems out of control or overwhelming. At your pace, we explore how you currently feel and begin to understand and make sense of your current experience. With knowledge of your past & in becoming aware of how current thoughts, emotions and behaviour interact and how difficulties are maintained, we'll uncover what needs to change. I then hope to empower and give you the confidence and method to make these changes.

At any time in our lives we may struggle to cope – this can be because of bereavement, breakdown of relationships, difficulties at work or loss of employment, physical illness, mental ill health such as anxiety or depression , traumatic experiences or just because we are not happy with life in general. For many of us, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated feelings of isolation and anxiety.

I have experience in the areas of stress, anxiety, depression , bereavement, loss of health, self-esteem, relationships, women's issues, pregnancy crisis/loss, life transitions.
At some point everyone faces difficulty, pain, challenge, confusion & longs for change. Does any of this sound familiar to you? Sometimes friends and family can be too close to be impartial or perhaps you are not ready to share with them yet. You may find it helpful to talk about what life is like for you, try to make sense of it, explore how you would like it to be, and figure out how you can step towards choosing your definition of "better". Viktor Frankl (WWII survivor) once said that everything could be taken from you EXCEPT the freedom to choose your attitude toward circumstances, to choose your own way. Perhaps I can help.

Why are we spending more time on how we look & less on how we feel? Most of us want to make an improvement to our daily lives but feel lost as to where to start, let me help. I realise the thought of speaking to someone can be scary, give me a call & see how you feel after. If I am not a fit I can give you some tips on how to find someone else, no need at all to feel embarrassed or nervous.

Do you feel controlled or trapped in a difficult relationship? have you lost your identity somewhere? or still looking for "The One" but always end up in the wrong relationship? Do you keep attracting the wrong partner type? Maybe you have left a toxic (narcissistic) relationship, and not sure how to trust again, or have been psychologically / emotionally abused and still feel confused? If you don't have full understanding of why it happened, you will be unable to "move on" or find emotional freedom in a future relationship. I offer understanding, answers, helpful insight and future guidelines.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
