Do these sound familiar to you :
> not sleeping well?
> feeling overwhelmed?
> each day seems to be getting harder and harder?
Going through tough times can be lonely but you don't have to do it alone .
Anxiety , Depression or Stress can leave us feeling extremely isolated and overwhelmed. It can be so hard trying to just get through each day when having to cope with these things alone.
Worrying about relationships, the challenges of having a young family or feeling depressed can cause sleepless nights and stress that affect every day living and functioning. How often do find yourself unable to concentrate because you have things on your mind? How often do find yourself losing focus because you're tired? These things can leave us feeling anxious and low in mood taking us to a point where it feels as though it takes all our strength and effort just to get through each day.
Are you feeling anxious about work? Do you find yourself dreading going into the job that you once loved and thrived in? Having to face a stressful environment day in day out can really affect us more than we realise. The anxiety and worry can start to spill over into our private lives and ultimately affect our normal living where we lose passion and drive for the things we once enjoyed.
It could be that maybe you find yourself struggling with past or present relationships and this leaves you feeling frustrated, sad, lonely or even angry at not being heard or misunderstood. Maybe you are a student who finds your studies or your current peer group stressful. Maybe you have recently suffered a loss or have depression or anxiety which is causing problems in your day to day life. Whatever your situation is, my aim is to listen to your fears and worries, explore your anxieties or what it is that may be keeping you awake at night. In my practice you are invited to a warm, empathic, confidential therapeutic space, where you are free to explore the thoughts and feelings that you feel completely overwhelmed with.
Counselling, also known as talking therapy, can help when feeling overwhelmed with worry and distress, when it feels like everything is just getting too much or when it feels like it is just simply to hard to cope alone anymore.
One to one counselling can work for you to make sense of what is going on and explore your view and experience of your world and the world around. If you feel you would benefit from being able to rest and sleep better or worry less then I can work with you to find ways to achieve these. If you want to be able to communicate with others more effectively or learn to take your space and be heard by others when you feel you have no voice, then counselling is the place for you. Take a look at my counselling page for a little more info.
If you find yourself in place where you need someone to talk to, someone who will understand how it feels to be overwhelmed, sad or lonely, I can offer you the time, space and an empathic understanding of the despair you find yourself in. My practices are easily accessible in Guildford and Woking and within easy reach from wider Surrey areas.
I use the knowledge and experience I have gained from all my years of counselling in private practise, community services, prisons and treatment centers to help clients work through their issues and explore ways in which they can move forward.
Being a professional counsellor, I am able to work with you when you want to figure out ways of how to deal with the challenges in your life and provide you with a safe and secure space where you can talk, share your thoughts, feelings, life experiences. Counselling can help you explore ways to get your life back on the right track, in as many sessions as you feel necessary. You are welcome to see a little more of how I work here.
All my face to face counselling sessions are completely confidential and as a professional BACP registered counsellor, I will offer you a non-judgmental, honest and welcoming environment.
Clients aren't expected to commit or be tied into a contract as I like to encourage and support you in making your own decisions and life choices. I therefore, welcome you to download a copy of the Guidelines and Standards which are general terms in private counselling. This means I would like to offer you a set day, time and space each week so that no matter what is going on in your life you have the security this one safe and reliable space.
It takes a lot of courage to approach a counsellor and sometimes we hope for instant results because we don't feel we should be so self-indulgent so want to fix things as quickly as possible. But having counselling is not indulgent, it isn't extravagant. Having counselling is about reaching out for help at a time we feel lost and vulnerable. It's about realizing you don't want to live this way anymore and you're willing to do what it takes to get our life back on track. I therefore, encourage my clients to give the therapeutic process some time as it takes time for anyone to adjust and feel confident in the process. Miracles don’t happen in just one session but significant change, finding answers, peace and understanding can happen over a period of time. My approach also allows you the opportunity to continue with your counselling journey for as long as you wish without being pressured with a time scale.
