Specialising in Counselling for Anxiety,
Self-Esteem, Loss & Relationship Issues
Self-Esteem & Confidence
Anxiety, fear and panic can wreck our ability to enjoy life and wear us down both mentally and physically. Long-term stress can undermine our well-being, We will help you to develop coping strategies, understand the causes of worry and deal with the underlying emotions more effectively, reducing feelings associated with anxiety and stress.
All Forms of
Loss can be triggered by many of life’s challenges. Examples include: loss of a relationship through break-up, divorce or family change; loss of purpose through retirement or redundancy; loss of identity due to the ageing process or health problems. We can help you to navigate these difficult cross-roads in your life-journey.
Low self-esteem, or a sense of not ever being good enough, can cause feelings of anxiety, depression or lack of confidence. In your counselling sessions with us you will explore the sources of your beliefs about yourself and work on developing a greater sense of self-acceptance, self-belief and self-worth.
We work with individuals and couples experiencing relationship problems. You may be looking to improve your partnership or marriage, navigate your way through a break-up, or deal with the the emotional fall-out from a relationship which has just ended. In all these situations counselling can help you manage your emotions and move forward.
When someone dies, feelings of grief can be completely overwhelming. It is one of the most devastating experiences we ever face. We will provide a safe, non-judgmental space to discuss these very difficult emotions openly and honestly, allowing you time to work through your grief and gradually adjust to your painful loss.
Low Mood or
Depression or low mood can destroy our pleasure in everyday life and is not always viewed sympathetically. Counselling will allow you to talk honestly about your feelings and explore possible underlying issues. Mindfulness strategies can also help to shift your perspective and live more fully in the present.
