The emotional challenges we face in our lives can sometimes become overwhelming and we can find ourselves with feelings of anxiety, low self-esteem or depression.
You may feel that you are in a lonely place and it can be difficult to know how to move forward. Acknowledging that you are struggling and having the courage to take the first steps to talk about it can lead to the positive changes you seek.
Counselling offers the opportunity to talk with someone who will listen and help you make a positive change to help regain your confidence and get your life back on track.

Take that first step
I offer a professional, safe, supportive and confidential space for you to work through any problematic issues you may be experiencing.
I firmly believe that we all have the potential to change but we sometimes need a little help and guidance in knowing how to do this. I would say that when people can understand themselves better and are able to see that they have the power to change things, that is generally a start in their road to recovery.
Seeking support when you feel vulnerable can be scary, but I would encourage you to take the first step and get in touch.
