About me and my therapy practice

Do you feel overwhelmed with the stressors of modern day living and would like to explore options for a more fulfilling life? Are you feeling exhausted at meeting the needs of others and find it difficult to find time for your own needs or unable to say “no” to the needs of others without feeling guilty?

Perhaps you need support to develop better ways of coping in times of stress or explore your own ways of behaving and relating with other people. It maybe that you are feeling a sense of emptiness and fulfilment and feel depressed or anxious and are looking for clearer direction and life meaning.

All of us experience difficult times in our lives. It maybe that you are struggling with a specific issue such as relationship or family issues. Maybe you are considering separation or divorce and need to talk through the difficulties. Or are experiencing grief due to bereavement and need someone to talk to but worry about burdening your family or friends.

Sometimes we don’t understand why we feel the way we do, why we think the way we do, and why we behave the way we do. The most important relationship we have is the relationship with ourselves but for many of us this can be the most difficult. Whatever your reasons, counselling can help provide the opportunity to explore, make sense of, and work through difficult and painful processes which can help us live a happier more fulfilling life with ourselves and in our relationships with ourselves and others.
