Deciding to ask for help doesn't have to be a last resort
Therapy can sometimes feel like a luxury and you may think that there are others more in need, sometimes it feels easier to just keep going and hope this all will pass. It's often easier to continue looking after others, without finding time to focus on what you need.
Deciding to give yourself time to talk through your experiences with someone who is there, just for you
is an important way to take care of yourself.
Feel heard and supported during a time in your life when you might feel alone and isolated
Give yourself space to deal with difficult feelings.
Find ways to manage and improve areas such as sleep, stress levels, time management, anxiety,
Increase your self-esteem and confidence.
Reignite the creative parts of yourself so that you can feel free to take some risks in your life
I work with adults of all ages dealing with a range of concerns and experiences
I provide both short term counselling and long-term, in-depth therapy.
Whether you are clear on what you want to achieve or you want a safe and confidential space to talk things through,
we can look at what you need and make a plan to work together in the best way that suits you.

People that come for Psychotherapy and Counselling describe finding a place where they are
listened to and can talk about what's going on for them without being judged or trying to be fixed.
They talk about gaining a better sense of who they are and what they want in their life.
They say they feel calmer and experience better sleep, reduced anxiety and
feeling more confident to ask for what they need.

It is important to note that counselling and psychotherapy are generally recognised as beneficial but sometimes this isn't always the case.
Choosing a counsellor or psychotherapist can be a big decision and it is important to feel that the person you choose is right for you.
