About me and my therapy practice

No one told us that mid-life was going to be this tough!

Having to deal with painful life events such as divorce, job worries, bereavement, illness, children leaving /returning home are difficult for everyone, but facing these challenges at a time when we are also likely to be navigating big changes to our personal roles in life, or feeling like we don’t recognise ourselves in the mirror any more, can be confusing and often extremely distressing. It’s as though we seem to be losing touch with our very selves.

Are you:

• Tired, burned out or irritable

• Anxious, depressed, exhausted

• Not feeling the joy or satisfaction in life you once did

• Just not feeling like yourself

• Lacking your usual drive

• Fighting to keep up with the world

• Struggling to adapt to a new role or responsibility you didn’t expect

• Wondering what happened to the old you

• Worried about the future

Having been through my fair share of these issues myself, my aim is to help when life becomes challenging. Through counselling I can help you to work through the struggles and confusion brought on by unwelcome changes in your life, and deal with your grief over the parts of yourself that you feel you have lost.

When we are feeling weighed down by frustration, anger, anxiety, or depression it can be hard to see a way forward, so as well as working through the bad stuff, I think it is important to take time, when you’re ready, to also explore the opportunities that mid-life can bring. Together we can work to discover what’s really important to you in life, helping you to create a fulfilling future and giving you the confidence to live it well.
