This last year has been uniquely challenging! The pandemic and the lockdowns may have impacted your mental health, wellbeing or self-esteem or highlighted your existing issues. You may be experiencing increased stress or anxiety. Your work or studies may have been more demanding. Your relationships with your partner, family or friends may have suffered or you feel sad, lonely or isolated. Do you feel you want to make sense of things or find a way to manage? Perhaps you realise that you want to make some changes in your life. Counselling is an amazing and beneficial process. I hope that I can support and be with you on this journey.

At various points in our lives we may find ourselves needing a little extra support. Sometimes the only way to get a handle on a problem is to share it with a complete stranger in the knowledge that you will not be judged, but supported toward reaching your goals. Whether those goals are to understand yourself better, increase your confidence or self-esteem, move on after divorce or bereavement or to begin to move past traumas and understand what is holding you back in your current life. I am here to help you explore what is happening for you right now.

You may be finding life tough, finding it hard to put your finger on what’s causing distress. General feelings of sadness and low self-esteem may be making it difficult to see who you truly are. Your sense of purpose may be ebbing, or indeed gone altogether. Instead, there may be a constant, nagging feeling of wishing things were different. But not knowing what that different looks or feels like. Whether or not it even exists. Do you feel your voice is being smothered by work pressures, or your personal aims are being crushed?

I am a person centred counsellor specialising in working with anxiety, low self esteem, grief and anger.
Life doesn't get any easier does it? Juggling work, relationships and family can be stressful and confusing, leaving us feeling emotionally drained. Sometimes the harder we work to please others, the tougher we are on ourselves. This can make us feel less than good enough. Deeper feelings of anxiety, sadness and anger can be painful and scary, so we become very good at burying them until they build up and overwhelm us. If you are experiencing feelings that are hard to manage I can help you.

Welcome. My name is Mark Harlow and I shall be pleased to help you. When life gets tough it can be so hard to know just what to do to put things right. Feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, difficulties within our relationships - these things are not always easy to change on our own, especially for the longer-term. As a professional Counsellor and Therapist, I believe that counselling can help you to make sense of these often complex issues. It can make a real difference to how you see things, feel, how you act, and provide a big step forward. Simply put, counselling can be a very effective way to make your life better.

I strive to be an approachable, warm and accepting counsellor who can offer you a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space to talk about whatever it is that is troubling you. I work Integratively, but underlying my theoretical approach is a belief in autonomy and the tendency towards growth and the possibility of change. These are the hallmarks of the humanistic tradition, and whilst I occasionally draw from behavioural approaches, I do so from a philosophically person centered standpoint. Essentially, I can help facilitate positive change, often in as few as six sessions only, through using a Solution Focused approach.

These issues can include lack of confidence, the breakdown of a relationship, financial worries, grief following loss of a loved one and death anxiety. You may be suffering from depression, low self-esteem or intimacy issues. You may be struggling to find meaning in your life or have a crisis of faith. Perhaps you find yourself repeating negative behaviour patterns but don't understand why and therefore find it difficult to make positive changes.

Life can be challenging; navigating relationships and attempting to get our emotional needs met. Sometimes we can have an ongoing feeling of unease or sadness or have specific fears related to facing particular people or situations. We can worry about what other people are thinking about us and what we have said or done. Or we can question who we really are. Often these worries can keep us awake at night, or stop us from doing things we have previously enjoyed or would like to try. We can know in our heart that life could be better but can feel stuck and unable to work out what we need to feel more content and self-accepting.

Are you struggling to make sense of conflicting advice on the best way to do this, or feeling burnt out from the sheer relentlessness of it all? I understand how isolating it is when those around you just don’t get diabetes or take it seriously - how impossible it feels to live in a world that does so little to accommodate the needs of diabetics.

Self Esteem Counsellors
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum. Equally, to lack confidence or lacking confidence is common amongst teens: child self esteem issues can be helped with self esteem support groups in Canterbury and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.

If you're looking for help with self esteem in Canterbury or for a Canterbury self esteem counsellor, these professionals provide therapy for self esteem. They include self esteem counsellors in Canterbury, self esteem psychologists, self esteem psychotherapists and self esteem therapists in Canterbury. They can help with counselling for self esteem in Canterbury or self esteem counselling and treatment for self esteem.
