Do you have anxiety, depression, panic attacks, relationship issues or low self-esteem?  Are you suffering with stress, lack of confidence or struggling to find meaning in your life?


At some point in our lives most of us will experience difficulties and challenging times when our usual coping strategies just don’t help.  Seeking help in the form of counselling can help us to develop an insight and understanding of our problems and to find new ways of coping.  It is sometimes not the events themselves but the way we react and interpret those events.


Once we gain a greater awareness of ourselves and others, our potential to adapt and change in a healthy and flexible manner is increased.


Making sense of our experience in the world and learning to take responsibility for ourselves can make the difference between merely existing or living life to the full.

Depression not only affects how we feel but how we think about things. It affects our energy levels, concentration, sleep and life can be seen through a lens of failures and disasters. Counselling can build a sense of hope and understanding that positive lasting change is possible.


Feeling fearful a lot of the time can be exhausting. Effective help can calm the central nervous system and help you to feel more in control, no longer letting anxiety stop you from living the life you want to live.

Self Esteem

Do you have a critical inner voice? Do you want to have a positive outlook and attitude
about yourself? Counselling challenges our negative thoughts helping to gain confidence and self acceptance. Being imperfect is sometimes just perfect!
