What do you need from therapy?

Helping you with anxiety, paranoid anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression,  stress, work-related stress, redundancy, bereavement, trauma, PTSD, OCD, phobias, anger management, personality disorders, eating disorders including obesity, bulimia and anorexia, body dysmorphia, physical and sexual abuse, sexuality, addiction(s) including substance misuse, alcohol, compulsive lying, codependency, affairs and betrayals, sex and porn, internet, gambling and gaming in addition to parent, couple and relationship issues specialising in individuals or couples caught up in a cycle of emotional abuse.

Are you feeling lost, sad or lonely? Jealous, fearful, guilty or ashamed? Stressed from work or lack of work? Are you missing opportunities, failing at business? Worrying about money, bills, redundancy? Anxious, critical, unkind and angry losing your temper with yourself or loved ones? Lying compulsively? Do relationships feel tricky? Stress unmanageable? Perhaps you lack assertiveness yet control others whilst secretly gambling, spending, drinking or using cocaine? Do you feel preoccupied with eating or Not eating. Obsessed with image, perfectionism and self-monitoring? Is it difficult to start the day? Does it feel easier to numb painful emotions from bereavement or loss? Do you take too much responsibility for the actions or well-being of others? On the other hand, you may sometimes feel as if too many people depend upon you? Are you disconnected from your feelings? Cemented in isolation and drawn into escapism? Or on the other hand are you and your loved one stuck in rows, conflict and unhappiness?

Offering a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where you can share and explore present and past experiences, express thoughts and feelings gaining personal awareness, enjoy a better quality of life, robust mental health, improved well-being and positive relationships with friends, parents, siblings, children and work.

Life begins on the other side of despair” Jean-Paul Sartre.

I believe each of us is unique with the potential for growth and development and can move forward in our own way. Your motivation to change and our client-therapist relationship provides a space for healing.
