You can feel safe, at peace with yourself, and connected to others.

Do you use repetitive or destructive behaviors to help you feel safe?
Is your life a series of acts you put on according to who you are with?
Is being you never good enough?
Do you feel ashamed, blamed, or inadequate?

Most Common Areas Of Counselling

Anxiety

Including generalized anxiety disorder and panic attacks.

Depression

Including postnatal depression and pervasive sadness.

Bereavement

loss and unresolved grief.

Couple and relationship issues

including restoration of trust following affairs, or when the relationship is irreparably broken, enabling separation or divorce to take place with the minimum of distress to both partners.

Addictions

drugs, sex, shopping/shoplifting, exercise, alcohol, and work. (Eating disorders also fall within this classification.)

PSTD

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - following road accidents, other life-threatening incidents, extreme violence, sexual assault, childhood abuse, difficult childbirth, or periods of severe pain.

Stress

Resulting from the workplace, financial and interpersonal difficulties.

Medically Unexplained Physical Symptoms

Such as chronic pain, phantom limb pain, fibromyalgia, IBS or chronic fatigue.

Abuse

Bad experiences in childhood affect people for the rest of their lives. Chronic health problems, mental illness, substance misuse, and reduced success in education and the job market can often be traced back to childhood abuse.

Most of the clients I see resolve their issues satisfactorily within the 4 to 12 appointment model of time-limited
counselling, but other clients I work with (some of whom have been discharged by the NHS with issues still
unresolved) need longer term psychotherapy to help them alleviate their problems.

I mainly work with adults (over the age of 18) of both sexes and both gay and straight, on a one-to-one basis,
unless I am working with a couple trying to resolve difficulties within their relationship.

You Can Do Anything

'I can now just look at those things and acknowledge them for what they are... they do affect me now and I'm getting comfortable with the idea that it's not an immutable fact about myself that I do get anxious or guilty about things, it's getting better, slowly but surely.'
