If you have arrived here, you have made the first step in acknowledging there is a need to talk to someone about how you’re feeling.
It can be hard to take that first step to seeking help, as we often think we should keep our feelings to ourselves and hide away negative thoughts. Perhaps you have managed the feelings and thoughts yourself for a long time but find the same feelings keep reoccurring and are unable to move past a certain point. You may have sought out help from friends or family but it seems no one really understands what you are going through, or you may have tried to implement others views to help you with what it is that is worrying you but these don’t seem to help either.
Living a life based on others expectations on how we should live our lives, can lead to anxiety and depression as well as a loss of identity, as we try to conform to what others think we should do.
You might feel you have reached a crisis point, where you are no longer able to conform to expectations or feel like your life has taken a direction you didn’t want it to but are unsure of how to change your old ways of being.
This is where counselling can help you.
Speaking with a trained, professional counsellor will help you to find the key to unlocking the doors, which are preventing you from being able to move forward in your life.
Taking care of our mental health is something we all need to be aware of as well as our physical health. There may be people who make suggestions of how they think you should change how you are, to fit into society and to be more accepted by what is classed as normal. However, no-one is normal and that’s ok.
Counselling is about helping you to understand yourself, it provides you with the tools you can use, to develop the confidence to find your own answers and be YOUR own “normal”.
By working together, we can develop a relationship which facilitates a change within you, to help you become the person you want to be.
As your counsellor, you will find I am warm, empathic and understanding to your experiences.
I offer an open and safe place for you to explore your feelings in a non-judgemental way.
Now is the time to find your true self and build a solid foundation so that you can be more self-assured in your future.
