If you are asking yourself what is wrong with me that I feel this way?! You are formally diagnosed as the result of dysfunctional feeling, thinking, and behaving? Depression ? Personality Disorder? Eating disorder? History of toxic relationships? Panic attack, anxiety attacks? And you are asking yourself when will that end? When will that change? You can end it now and began a new journey ;) Psychotherapy is an integrative process of experiencing all your senses, emotions, thoughts, and body in a holistic context. As result, you will find your way back home to yourself.

Some reasons you might look for counselling may be:● Depression ● Anxiety ● Panic Attacks ● Struggling with Relationships ● Confidence and Self Esteem ● Bereavement .
I implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among clients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the client and counselor alike. But in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results. Our therapy sessions can either be in English or in Romanian.

I have experience working with a broad range of needs and issues, including trauma, anxiety, depression , low self-esteem, stress and anger.
Source Counselling & Psychotherapy is founded on the belief that within you is a source of happiness, inner strength and resiliency that can enable you to deal with the pressures and struggles life can present. It is from these many sources that greater understanding of who you are emerges, a key factor in finding ways to deal with issues and problems you experience. Exploring your issues can provide you with a deeper awareness and understanding of the cause of these problems - the source. Knowing the source of a problem is only part of the work.

For over a decade I have been supporting women going through various life changes and transitions. Together we carved paths through overwhelm and anger, through heartbreak and grief, through feeling stuck, through anxiety and depression . Together we found ways to transform, accept or let go of what caused frustration or pain. Each time, down the path, we discovered amazing inner strength, wisdom and creativity which allowed us to move forward with a sense of peace, integrity and empowerment. Does that sound like what YOU need to do at this time in your life?

Wherever you are. However you are. You are welcome. Yes, sometimes we just can’t do it on our own and we need help. Therapy is one way to resource yourself to meet some of life’s challenges. Crippling anxiety, overwhelming grief, black depression are sources of deep pain and dark suffering. They can also be as a consequence of early traumatic experiences or negative beliefs we hold about ourselves. To accept where you are is the first step in healing yourself. Hi, I’m Liam and I create a safe place for you to explore your world, where I meet you with compassion and non-judgement in a confidential setting.

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.
