Anxiety is a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease about something with an uncertain outcome that can affect all of us at some point in our lives. Anxiety manifests itself in many different ways; symptoms might include breathing rapidly, trembling or excessive crying. You may feel an impending danger, panic or doom, even weak or tired. It can be crippling and very frightening and might develop into panic attacks.
To explore new ways of managing your symptoms, call me on 07377 470 640 to arrange an introductory session.
If you are often sensitive to criticism and withdraw socially it’s possible you may have low self-esteem. You may also experience an excessive preoccupation with personal problems and have physical symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia and headaches.
Counselling can help you explore in a safe and confidential space why you have low self-esteem and look at ways of understanding your confidence issues so that you can start to set appropriate boundaries. You can also consider what it would feel like to be more assertive with others and nurturing to yourself and explore how to engage with others more effectively.
Depression can have a major impact on daily life, negatively affecting how you feel, think and behave. Depression causes feelings of sadness and/or a loss of interest in activities and pastimes you may have once enjoyed.
Depression is often associated with bereavement, a loss of something important like a relationship or job or associated with chronic illness.
Counselling can offer support during difficult and stressful periods when depression takes hold.
Losing a loved one through death or relationship breakup can be devastating, confusing and lonely. You may experience many feelings including anger, sadness and depression. You might feel you have no-one who understands how you feel; you might feel isolated or find others expect you to ‘get over it’ before you are ready. Or you may simply just want space to cry.
Bereavement counselling can offer much needed support as you navigate and come to terms with your loss.
Are you getting into conflicts and arguments with a partner? Are you having difficulty communicating and not feeling heard, or feeling a loss of connection? Perhaps you need space or feel jealous and possessive of your partner? Maybe you are experiencing financial problems or a loss of sex life or incompatible sexual drives.
Whatever relationship problems you are experiencing, couples counselling can offer an impartial space for you to explore what is going on.
Understanding why you under or over eat can be a key factor to help you change your habits. Meeting with a group of individuals whom all face similar concerns can be a good way to explore why you have developed eating issues.
Working with a trained counsellor can also help you look at ways to change your thinking and behaviour around food.

Counselling and Psychotherapy can help you talk about your feelings, think about your choices and patterns of behaviour to help you make changes in your life.
Counselling might focus on current situations including bereavement, stress management, a divorce or a relationship break up for example.
Psychotherapy might explore deeper emotional, psychological and relationship issues in additions to issues of low self-esteem, depression and anxiety.
Specific advice or opinions are not given but a Counsellor and Psychotherapist is trained to listen with empathy and can help you deal with any negative thoughts and feelings you may have.
You may find it easier to talk about your personal, family or relationship issues with an independent and professional therapist.
You can expect one or a series of weekly confidential, professional face to face sessions which last 50 minutes, each held in a private and comfortable setting where you won't be disturbed.
Talking with a Counsellor or Psychotherapist offers space to help identify the choices for change and to make sense of individual circumstances.
Options can be discussed by phone, email or in an initial exploratory session.
Sessions might involve you talking about life events, your feelings and emotions, your relationships, how you think, along with your patterns of behaviour.
A Counsellor and Psychotherapist is trained to listen to you, encourage you and empathise with your feelings.
You will be supported and helped to understand yourself better and to find your own solutions, to mobilise change or cope with your situation more effectively.
Depending on your presenting issues, short term Talking Therapy may be appropriate or longer term Talking Therapy may be more beneficial.
