To reach out into the unknown is a good definition of bravery. And as you’re reading these words, I believe that you are, like many others, truly a brave soul. You may have a clear idea of what is affecting your life, or you may be searching for help, understanding, and a place to work through what you’re feeling and thinking. It is my conviction that talking therapy, coaching, offers you that space.

Dealing with Life’s Challenges

Dealing with Life’s Challenges

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?

Overcoming Depression

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.

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?

Managing Stress

Managing Stress

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?
