Help with stress, anxiety or depression

It is quite common to experience stress, anxiety or depression and it can be hard to cope with this on your own.  If you have been feeling anxious or depressed research suggests counselling can be helpful.

Counselling can also help many other life issues so feel free to contact me to discuss your situation in confidence.

Help with relationships

We can all find relationships difficult at times. It can be distressing when things go wrong or conflict arises. Whether it is a close relationship or perhaps conflict at work there are times when it can be helpful to talk to someone independent. More information on help with relationships.

How can counselling help you?

Many people find it beneficial to talk openly and in confidence about situations in life that are causing distress. You don’t have to be seriously depressed or anxious to benefit from counselling. You may just be feeling a bit lost, confused or lacking in direction. Counselling can help you to make decisions, redefine goals, or come to terms with difficult experiences.
