I am registered counsellor and coach with nearly 10 years of professional experience. I help clients with stress and anxiety, anger management, self esteem, confidence, and depression.
I believe that you are the expert of you and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you.
We can often feel overwhelmed by the demands of life. This can leave us feeling upset, sad, and perhaps even angry. While one-off situations may be manageable, stress, anxiety, and worry can escalate when these demands all arrive at the same time. Perhaps family, friends, or work all want some piece of you and there’s a difficulty in saying, ‘no’. What might be some ways to help overcome these life challenges?Find out more
Depression can invariably feel like you’re in an inescapable situation with no resources available to overcome it. Depression often has its roots buried deep in the feeling of being alone. With an overwhelming belief that no one quite understands how it feels and ignoring it and ‘get on with life’ doesn’t really work. For these reasons, you can easily feel incredibly isolated which only further increases the depressive feelings. How can we then look to understand this and to begin to dissolve the cycle?Find out more
Stress and fear are conditions that we are designed to experience. They are related to the mammalian part of the brain that governed us through our evolutionary journey (how far would we get if we responded without fear to an approaching threat?). Anxiety is a response to stress and fear while experiencing some threat. And whilst it may have been helpful in some circumstances, anxiety’s persistent and consistent presence causes an intolerable strain on us. What ways are there to reduce this anxiousness and manage our response?Find out more
Stress is a necessary response to certain situations. It’s designed to release cortisol and adrenaline in order to sharpen our reactions, prepare us for action, and reduce unrequired mental and physical functions. Where would we be if didn’t have this response when confronted with a threatening situation? Yet clients come to me often with an overdeveloped stress response where it fails to be deactivated long after the threat has passed. What can we do to reduce this so that we can use it in a healthy and more helpful way?Find out more
