I believe personal progress happens when a trusting therapeutic relationship develops between client and counsellor, I aim to provide such a connection for you.
I work with individuals and I am also a Relate trained couple therapist. Are you feeling stuck at the moment with nowhere to turn and get the feeling nobody will understand? Maybe your self esteem has hit rock bottom and you lack drive and motivation to face your next move. Or do you carry a heavy emotional burden from your past that prevents you from finding happiness? You may be a couple who just don't seem to work anymore, maybe find it difficult to communicate or are getting over an infidelity or some other big obstacle. I will do my best to help you find that spark again or discover a new path which may be richer than before.

It has been a valuable learning experience which I now use working with couples and relationship counselling.
The anxieties and stresses of everyday life may be too much to bear and your emotions don't seem to reflect the moment. You may be feeling out of touch with yourself or devastated by a recent event in your life. It could be that you just don't know what it is that you want, or who you really are. Whatever it is, together we can help you rediscover your inner resources and true identity. You may then identify what it is that you would really like, what works for you and how to achieve it, your way.

Relationship/marriage issues/break down, and affairs.
Hello and welcome. We all have times when we need some emotional support. You may be feeling sad, anxious, low, or confused or finding it hard to organise your thoughts. You may feel that you may be judged if you talk about what you are thinking and feeling. It may seem as though you are all alone with overwhelming worries, unable to focus on anything or anyone else. You may feel that things don’t feel right for you anymore, and that you want things to change, but don't know where to start. It may seem as though at this point you are still unsure as to what it is that brings you to counselling.

At times of feeling low or anxious we often think, “what’s the point of trying it won’t make any difference”, leading to feelings of depression, sadness, fear and tearfulness. This then leads to changes in our behaviour such as withdrawing from others or staying in bed as we mull things over in our heads which makes us feel worse. Additionally, past trauma issues can often leave us feeling overwhelmed or with experiences of flashbacks and nightmares. Relationship issues left unresolved often leave us with a sense of helplessness and relationship breakdown leave us feel confused. Does this sound familiar to you?

Maybe you are having problems in your relationship, or experiencing bereavement, loss or abuse. It can seem hard to cope at times with life's challenges, but you do not need to cope alone. It can be helpful to talk to someone who is not directly involved. Whatever your needs may be, coming to counselling can be an opportunity to think about your life now, what has shaped you & for us to work together and consider what you really want for your future

The therapeutic relationship is key for any counselling work to succeed and is crucial in my work.
People come to counselling for help and support with whatever issues they are struggling with. That could be issues from the past that are playing out in their everyday life, or worries in the future that may not have already happened. Having a space to feel safe and address issues is paramount to moving forward with today’s stresses and strains. Understanding and addressing thoughts, behaviours and building emotional well-being is brought about by heightening consciousness and self-awareness allowing for better and healthier coping skills and strategies. This helps with issues around guilt, shame, self-esteem, anxiety and identity.

The starting point is to build a collaborative and trusting relationship between us,allowing you to acknowledge and talk about your feelings.
You know you are suffering and everything you have tried so far hasn’t worked. You want help. You keep having the same kinds of experiences over and over again and you are baffled as to how to break the cycle. You know you’ve got some baggage, but you’re not sure what all is in there or how much it’s really weighing you down. You hear other people talk about counselling, maybe you’ve even tried therapy before. You’re considering it now and that is a brave first step.

There are times in life when we feel we aren’t getting the kind of support we seek, or we have experiences that feel challenging. There is a myriad of reasons why someone might seek therapeutic support. It might be because you are feeling really sad about something very specific like the end of a relationship, grappling with a change/ moving forwards. It might be a broader concern such as wanting more self-understanding. You might want to find alternative ways of relating, or accepting and adapting to a new situation. Perhaps you're not exactly sure what you want and that's ok too.

By developing a strong working relationship based on love, trust and acceptance and sitting or walking alongside someone who is warm, compassionate and non-judgemental, we can look at past experiences, untangle them and help you make sense of things.
I enjoy helping you discover the key to why you are suffering with anxiety, OCD or depression. I can help you feel better and will give you hope, love and acceptance. I understand struggling with anxiety can be overwhelming, particularly if you are experiencing panic attacks. It can literally feel like you are going to die. You are not going to die or going mad. Anxiety is simply your body's way of letting you know things are not quite right. Anxiety creates fear, which triggers the 'flight or fight' response. We can also become locked in a vicious circle of being afraid of the fear.

I am an integrative counsellor trained in lots of different theories but the relationship between the counsellor and client is I feel the most important aspect.
I recognise that life is a journey that can sometimes be a struggle. Life in this modern world is often chaotic, stressful and moves at such a fast pace, yet our reptilian brains are still designed to deal with cave man threats. This can lead to our bodies being flooded with fight, flight or freeze responses. In time these can build and lead to conditions such as anxiety, depression and low level trauma if not dealt with correctly. Having the support to help you through is not always easy to find.

Relationship Issues Counsellors
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Gloucester relationship counsellor, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counselling in Gloucester.
