Everyone has things they are dealing with and most of us just about manage to keep our heads above water, well most of the time. But sometimes our problems can spiral out of control and start to overwhelm us especially if more than one life changing event happens at the same time. We feel that we should be able to deal with things better, that’s its trivial but we all need someone to talk to.
It can get harder to talk to friends and family so that’s where counselling can help. It can offer a safe, confidential space for you to talk about what’s going on without fear of judgment or repercussions.
I’m a qualified counsellor with an advanced diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy and an accredited member of the National Counselling Society.
For me the most important aspect of counselling is to build a relationship of trust with my clients. Talking about personal issues can be hard for a lot of people and opening up to a complete stranger can make you feel vulnerable and emotional. It’s my job to put you at ease, listen to what you have to say compassionately without opinion or judgment and for you to know that anything you say is confidential.
Although I specialise in grief counselling I also provide psychotherapy and counselling:
- If you’re feeling low or depressed
- Experiencing relationship problems
- Constant worrying about the people in your life
- Suffering from anxiety or panic attacks
- Feeling stressed or overwhelmed
- Struggling to control your weight
- Dealing with phobias or irrational fears
- Feelings of being unable to cope
- Problems with your own or someone else’s drinking
- Feeling angry or frustrated
- Self-harm or self-defeating behaviours
If you’re experiencing any of these issues or concerns and want to talk to someone impartial, please get in touch.
