Sometimes we sense something needs to change in our lives.
Sometimes we're not sure what it is or how to find help and make it better. Changing seems difficult and we feel stuck.
How can counselling help?
I believe therapy works because someone is there for you without judgement. As a counsellor I am here to collaborate with you to explore your hopes and fears. My job is to help you make sense of what's going on for you and between us se whats happening then find a way forward to feel better about yourself and your life.
I believe our so called imperfections and differences describe our uniqueness and the pathway toward the courage to be who we really are.
Here are some difficulties for which I have helped my clients:
Couples and relationships - for partnership difficulties and/or difficulty coping with a break up, affairs or separation.
Trauma and surviving abuse - physical and emotional.
Sexual difficulties - for both individuals and couples.
Worry and stress, maybe in relationships at home or at work.
Anger - resentment, jealousy.
Dependencies - on alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling.
Self acceptance - feeling inadequate, low self confidence.
Grief, loss and bereavement.
Many of these issues can often be resolved within a few months depending upon the focus of the difficulty.
If you feel desperate now you should see your GP as soon as possible and you can call the Samaritans 24 hours.
