If you are reading this there is a chance that you (or someone you know) may be experiencing some emotional difficulties. In my personal experience, counselling and psychotherapy can help with a wide range of problems related to life and living.
Many of us don’t know why we feel unhappy and sitting down with a trained therapist can help uncover the self-defeating patterns we may have stumbled into as a consequence of life’s events.
I am a fully qualified psychotherapist and counsellor. I offer both short and long term counselling/therapy to individuals and couples. I have worked with people through a broad range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, all types of abuse, family issues, bereavement, complex needs and personality disorders.
I offer a space for us to work together to explore your thoughts and feelings with a ‘better tomorrow’ being our primary goal. The prospect of counselling can often seem daunting and scary, but once the step into it has been taken, the process of self-discovery is usually a rewarding and enjoyable experience.
Our first meeting is free of charge and gives us the chance to see how we can work together.
What are the benefits of individual counselling?
Talking to someone who gives you their undivided attention can be a very healing and rewarding process. It can relieve anxiety, depression or stress due to work or relationship issues. It could help you cope with major life changes, such as the break-up of a relationship, the death of a loved one or the loss of a job. The process of understanding yourself can help you identify and break out of self-defeating patterns. It can also help you manage extreme reactions such as anger. Therapy can be instrumental in the recovery from physical, sexual or emotional abuse. If you have trouble sleeping, counselling can help your mind slow down a little. As the mind and body are inextricably linked, counselling can also help with physical ailments.
What are the benefits of couples counselling?
Sometimes it is easier for someone who is not so involved to spot unhelpful patterns in your ways of relating. It can help you to share your thoughts and feelings and improve your communication. Having the space to talk through difficult topics and to know that you are in a safe environment to do so, can bring a sense of relief and allow your partner to really ‘hear’ you. This can promote intimacy on many levels. If the relationship has experienced a trauma, such as infidelity, counselling can help to rebuild your trust in each other.
