Are you experiencing anxiety in any form including social anxiety, health anxiety, separation anxiety, catastrophic thinking and general anxiety. Imagine how you may feel with less anxious feelings weighing you down. How freeing would that feel? Feelings of anxiety can be incredibly overwhelming and debilitating and can have a huge impact on your quality of life. I provide you with the support and understand you need to start to understand the root cause of your anxiety and the different ways this presents in your life. I will then help you to process whatever trauma may have initiated the anxiety and start to learn new ways to challenge your negative thoughts, restore some balance and peace in your mind and overcome the difficult feelings anxiety brings. I can help you start to live the life you want to be living.
Are you feeling low or not quite yourself. Maybe your doctor has diagnosed you with depression or maybe you want to recover some motivation and joy that you once had. Maybe you have not been able to share how you are feeling with anyone and have felt embarrassed or unable to open up to anyone. Through personal therapy and counselling, we will work together to understand what has been happening for you and why. Depression can affect so many different areas of your life and leave you feeling worthless, unloved and without a place in society. I will help you to help yourself find ways to start feeling happier and more able to function. I will also work with you to recover motivation, perspective and the joy that you once had in your life or want to have moving forward. Together, we can work on a plan to lessen these debilitating feelings and help you to function better and lead a more satisfying life.
Maybe you are looking to strengthen your emotional connection with a partner, improve your communication or change your behaviours within a relationship. Maybe you are looking to move on from a previous relationship and have not been able to get over a breakup, or you may need to find the strength to end a relationship. You may be having difficulty building or maintaining friendships, or you may be experiencing a breakdown of an existing friendship. Counselling with me is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions regarding your relationship needs in order to move forward, increase well-being, change behaviours or identify areas for change. I can help you improve your communication in your relationships and help you develop the skills for more satisfying relationships in the future. Relationship counselling is available on an individual basis or with a partner/friend/family member if needed.
Low self-esteem and confidence can present in many different ways and affect many aspects of your life. Counselling can help you to identify what has happened to you that has caused such feelings, identify how you would like to be feeling and work towards becoming the person you would like to be. There are lots of helpful tips and information on 'people-pleasing' and 'boundaries' on my blog section as these are common themes that come up in personal therapy and low self-esteem.
Loss comes to everyone at some point, whether that be the loss of a person, a pet, a dream, a job or career. It may be a relationship you had or a future you had imagined or worked hard for. Anxiety, fear, despair, regret and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger. Counselling offers you a place to be able to talk about your feelings in-depth and as often as you need to start to process the loss of you suffered. We will work together to help you adjust and accept 'your new normal' and I will guide you through the process of grief and healing. This can include end of life care for yourself and/or a friend or relative.
Are you feeling stressed or overwhelmed? Maybe it is work related, or home/family related? Maybe you don't know why things are getting on top of you. Together we can start to understand what has been making you feel this why and explore your feelings, wants and needs. We can work on your issues and make a plan to reduce the stressful feelings and bring calm and contentment back into your life.
