Hello and a warm welcome to my website.
Life has ups and downs just as night turns into day, and there may be occasions in your life when the downs are more difficult to cope with and when that occurs, talking about how you're feeling to someone independent can really help.
There are lots of reasons for seeking help:
Perhaps you're feeling low in mood, depressed, angry, anxious or stressed, sad, lost, experiencing physical symptoms in your body that you can't explain, there may be problems in your personal relationships, family dynamics, you’re having issues at work, you're bereaved and grieving the death of a loved one, or the never ending 'to do list' and events of every day life are just overwhelming.
Perhaps you're feeling 'stuck' and life isn't turning out exactly as you'd hoped, or low self-esteem and self-limiting beliefs are holding you back from living the life you want to lead and being the person you want to be.
Perhaps you want to lose weight or stop smoking or rid yourself of a phobia or fear.
Or sometimes life just feels out of balance...you feel unhappy.....you don’t know why or what to do to feel better.
If this sounds familiar to you, it may be time to take that first step and reach out to talk and prioritise your mental health and wellbeing. Having uninterrupted time to talk things through can help you understand what you're feeling, why you're feeling this way and what you can do to feel better. Talking to friends and family can help, but they may not fully understand, or give unwanted advice, or may have their own agenda. Counselling offers you a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space to talk about your life and the reason you sought therapy.
The information on my pages explains more about me and the type of therapies I offer, fees and appointment times. If you feel drawn to my therapy style, I offer a free 20 minute consultation where we can have an initial chat to talk about what you want to achieve and whether my therapies are right for you.
I look forward to hearing from you if you are ready to take that first step.
