Life can feel really difficult
How are you coping at the moment? Life can throw up all sorts of challenges - work and career stress, financial worries, responsibility for older or younger family members, personal relationships. And when a major live event like bereavement, divorce or redundancy hits it can all feel overwhelming. Add in living through a global pandemic that is affecting every part of our lives and the pressure increases. Levels of stress and anxiety keep increasing. You might feel depressed or helpless.
How can I help you?
Talking to a counsellor - someone outside of your family and friends - gives you space to say what you really want to say. To explore your feelings and how they are affecting your behaviour. To identify ways to help you cope with your feelings and move forward. To help you manage your stress and anxiety or work through relationship issues or grief.
Talking to a counsellor can help you to understand why you feel and act the way you do. I can give you a safe space to talk about how you really feel and give you a non-judgemental environment to work through your feelings and how you can make positive changes in your life.
I've been there. Counselling helped me with a number of issues that I thought I could deal with. Having the space to talk them through with a therapist enabled me to move forward. Find out more about me here
I am a qualified counsellor, registered with the BACP. I offer sessions online via a secure platform, and face to face counselling sessions in Brentwood, Essex.
I can help if you are struggling with any of the following:
Online and face to face counselling
I offer online counselling as well as face to face sessions in Brentwood, Essex. Brentwood is easily accessible from Romford, Billericay and Chelmsford.
In my experience, both types of counselling can be really effective.
Online counselling works well if you can't physically get to meet me in Brentwood. It has the advantage of no travel time so can be easier to fit into your busy day. I'm able to offer early morning appointments online, as well as daytime and evening slots.
Face to face counselling allows us to sit together in the counselling room. For some people, being able to sit together with a counsellor helps them to open up.
You can decide which type of counselling works best for you.
