Reasons for Therapy

I offer face to face, telephone and online video link counselling.
Below are the most common reasons people have entered into therapy with myself:-

  • Depression– whether the depression is a recent event or something you feel you have carried with you from a past event;
  • Anxiety– this is a wide and varied term as it covers social, specific or generalised anxiety it also would include panic attacks and phobias;
  • Abuse – this might include, psychological, physical, emotional or sexual abuse which could be in your past or present;
  • Low self-esteem – this may appear as a negative self-opinion you may compare yourself to others, and feel you don’t measure up;
  • Lack of self-confidence is not having faith in your own decisions and judgements and may leave you doubting yourself when you need to make choice about life;
  • Mental health– which is a very wide subject but would include some of the reason listed here;
  • Post natal Depression– which is also known as post-Partum separation and can be very distressing as it around the birth of what people would consider a very joyous time. This may leave you feeling more depressed as people can’t understand why you aren’t as happy;
  • Illness – illnesses such as cancer, diabetes and other long term illnesses that may require an adjustment period;
  • Anger management – anger is a powerful emotion and at times can feel out of control but with guidance you can find ways to help and control the outlet;
  • Bereavement– the loss of a loved one is a very emotionally charged whether it is your child or partner or even a parent, grandparent, whomever they are, they meant a lot to you and you need time to come to terms and finding your way through.
