Mental Health encompasses our emotional, psychological and social well-being. It has a huge impact on how we act, feel and react, as well as impacting the life choices we make.
If you are struggling with anxiety depression, mental health issues, grief, anger or feel tearful, it impacts your daily life. Difficult feelings can impact our family relationships, work, self esteem, body image, confidence and resilience.
In our work together we will explore your feelings and thoughts and look at your relationships with yourself and others and consider how past experiences and current behaviours are potentially connected.
I can help you develop greater self-understanding , increasing self confidence, impacting the quality of your relationships. Loss or change in life can evoke challenging and overwhelming emotions, understanding yourself and exploring patterns of behaviour that no longer work or cause anxiety can help you gain insight into what you feel and why.
Seeking help and support to overcome feelings and emotions is a big step and it can be helpful to have someone beside you on your journey. My goal as a Counsellor is to provide an open, compassionate environment, a safe place to talk.
I have experience working with a broad range of emotional issues, whether you are experiencing ordinary life events and struggling to cope, or deep trauma, such as abuse.
I am a psychodynamically trained counsellor, Psychodynamic counselling helps explore deep rooted feelings and struggles. Exploring and understanding our relational patterns can help us process issues making changes by identifying and working through behavioural patterns that we no longer need or that cause anxiety.
Working together we can develop a greater understanding of your thoughts and feelings, exploring how you can move forward in a safe and confidential environment. Counselling can help develop self confidence, improving and developing more fulfilling relationships. Exploring and understanding our emotions can begin to help us manage our overwhelming emotions.
