Most of the time we work through difficulties on our own, or with the help of friends and family. Sometimes though things appear so confused and tangled that it seems impossible to continue. What used to work before no longer does - we question ourselves and don’t like some of the answers. Friends and family aren’t always the right people to help, we might want to protect them or maybe they are part of the problem.
Psychotherapeutic Counselling can help you untangle the threads, understand yourself better and make positive changes in your life. The best therapists make you feel safe and able to talk about your difficulties without feeling judged. At the same time, you feel that they are genuine and say what they see. Counsellors are not just interested in the facts of your life, but also what you think and feel about them. When you feel your counsellor understands you on a deep level you know you have an ally to help you through.
It is this working partnership which can lead to clarity, a shift in emotions, and a better understanding of yourself and your situation.
Professionally trained, accredited and with extensive experience, I have a warm pragmatic approach to help you through your difficulties. I specialise in working with depression and can help with associated issues such as; anxiety, anger, stress, relationship issues, low self esteem, alcohol and drug misuse, and gambling addiction. I have developed my practice through counselling for the NHS, drug and alcohol agencies, and the charitable sector. Contact me for a free 15 minute discussion on how I can help.
