Mental Health Awareness

neon signage

During this Pandemic……..lots of people are adapting to a new way of life in the UK and all over the World.  How can we manage our mental health in these strange times, where things feel very uncertain and our anxiety levels are high.  It can be difficult if we have been experiencing issues with our mental health prior to this Global Crisis…what can we do to ease those feelings of depression, anxiety etc. 

Being kind to our selves and other people is important; as human beings crave for connection with other people…we are tribal. It is important to be there for those who are struggling…let them know that they are not alone and show each other that we care.  Think of new ways that can give you focus e.g. learn something that you have always wanted to do… creative….painting, poetry….or write a journal to help let go of those difficult feelings and emotions. 

Stay Safe and be considerate and be kind to yourself and other people who are possibly alone, and have No one to talk to, get to know them…find out who they are as a person. We can do this if we pull together…….





When we lose someone……

In our life time we will experience losing someone we love; this could be due to the loss of a child or could be a husband/wife or partner who has died from a terminal illness. Perhaps a mum or dad who is living and are unrecognisable as a person due to Dementia; this can bring up feelings of loss, even though they are still physically here.

When we experience the death of a loved one, it can turn our world upside down. It can be difficult at times when it comes to expressing our feelings and emotions, especially around family members and close friends. Every person will grieve and move forward at their own pace; this can be difficult for some people because of the added pressure from partners, family and friends. Many believe that any one grieving, perhaps should have “moved on” or be “getting on with their life by now “.

Having the space to talk about your feelings regarding the loss of someone you either loved or perhaps experienced a difficult relationship with, can help you to understand all those feelings that are impacting on you on a deeper level. If you would like to be able to experience a safe environment where you could express how you really feel, then contact me by using the link on this website and I will get back to you so that we can arrange an appointment. If you have any further questions then please contact me by using the form on my website.

The Impact of Abuse

Experiencing Abuse can have such a big impact on you, on lots of many different levels. Abuse has NO discrimination on gender, sexuality, age, ethnicity and cultural beliefs.   Abuse can show it’s self in many ways, whether it is physical, sexual or emotional, sometimes all of these. Experiencing this can leave you feeling anxious, scared, powerless and feeling worthless….to name a few. 

I can offer you a safe and confidential space to work through these difficult emotions allowing you to experience a non-judgmental environment.  Taking that first step to change can be the start to a new journey and discover who you are really meant to be……

A Confidential, Professional and Caring approach to your Counselling needs.

If you are looking at this website then perhaps you are considering counselling.  Possibly you have experienced a life event recently or in the past and this has impacted on how you feel about yourself.  It can also ripple out to how you relate to other people, especially those that are close to you. I will work with you in a non-judgemental safe space; allowing you to experience, being truly yourself.

If you are considering to take the first steps to understand and change how you feel, then contact me to arrange an appointment so that we can meet up to discuss your needs or if you need further information. In this first appointment we can discuss and look at what you would like to work with; making sure that I am the right person for you and that we can both work together. It might be your first time experiencing counselling, and you may have questions about what will happen ? If you have experienced counselling before and feel that this is the right time to explore further, or new impacting events are currently affecting on how you feel about yourself. Take that first or next step to change how you feel.
