Are you feeling low?
Its normal to feel sad, stressed, isolated or anxious sometimes. And though you shouldn't be made to feel guilty for how you feel, it can be really difficult to work out a way out of these feelings. This is when seeking guidance from a professional can really help. Someone who understands what it's like to feel that way too, and who knows how to get through these tough times.
Is counselling right for you?
Maybe you are at a crossroad in your life? Or perhaps you are feeling very anxious... about your relationship or where you are heading in your career? It could be that you have been struggling with something for a long time, such as an eating disorder, insomnia or depression. Or maybe you are just feeling a long way from home? There doesn't have to be a specific reason, you may have been considering counselling for some time now, and would like to finally give it a try.
Counselling is about empowering you to make the choices that are right for you.

Whether you are suffering from anxiety, depression, feeling low or if you have a specific issue you want to address, counselling can be a positive and empowering experience for anyone.
The important thing to remember is that despite how bad you may be feeling now, there is a way to feel better. The idea of counselling may be daunting, but it has proven to help a great deal of people suffering.
Counselling works because it gives you the opportunity to explore difficult feelings within a safe and confidential space.
Learning why you feel the way you do.
It is about exploring real options and improving your quality of life by taking control of the situation.
We can talk about the reasons you want to start counselling and we can think about constructive ways you would like to use therapy to get the most from it.
There are lots of ways we can work together. I am an integrative psychotherapist, meaning the counselling I provide is one of the most effective methods available. Never applying a 'One-size-fits-all' theory, I listen to my clients' each unique perspective. I don't assume I know how you feel and I try to encourage you to express yourself in your own words. My aim is to help you feel more confident about who you are, not who you think you should be.
How does it work?
Counselling works a bit like this umbrella. No one can stop the rain from falling, but it is possible to the protect yourself from getting too wet. Counselling is not about holding back your feelings but more about finding ways to understand yourself better and learning why you feel the way you do. Like the rain, which waters the plants, uncomfortable feelings can actually be an important part of personal growth. Instead of leaving you feeling overwhelmed, working through your feelings in counselling can help you turn negative experiences into positive opportunities.
