Making the decision to seek help to address the emotional problems or concerns you have, whether from a traumatic experience, changes in your life, feeling out of control, bereavement, abuse, anxiety, relationship difficulties or anything else, is an important and sometimes difficult first step. You may be sensing things just do not feel right or that others are concerned about you. Understanding why by talking with a counsellor or psychotherapist may help you gain an alternate perspective of how problems continue to affect both yourself and others and enable you to respond differently.

Counselling and psychotherapy
As a professionally trained Psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist, I offer a safe, confidential place where you can talk about yourself and problems or issues you are desperately trying to cope with. I will offer you the opportunity to think and talk about yourself and your concerns in a way that you often cannot do with family and friends, as they may be too emotionally involved. I will help you to make the positive changes you would like to happen and support you in improving your well-being. My What is Counselling and How can Counselling Help pages explain more about counselling psychotherapy and the common areas often addressed.
Having worked in Mental Health services for a number of years, I have gained a great deal of experience with:
- Relationship difficulties
- Loss of a loved one, job, or role,
- Anger & aggression
- Family issues
- Abuse — sexual, physical or emotional
- Low confidence or self-esteem
- Post-Traumatic Stress
- Suicidal thoughts
