Are you finding it more and more difficult to relax or to feel motivated?

Maybe life has taken a sudden turn which you are struggling to deal with?

Do you feel that you are no longer able to enjoy life if the way you used to?

Do you struggle with conflicting feelings or thoughts, or have you noticed they have become more negative lately?

Perhaps it has felt like they are starting to take over, leaving you feeling as if you are “no longer in control” of them or “strong enough to cope” in the way you have in the past? Or maybe there is something alarmingly familiar about this which you realise has happened before at difficult times in your life?

It is natural to want to believe that we can deal with whatever life throws at us all of the time, but in truth there are times when what we are trying to deal with just feels too much to cope with.

To ask for help might seem like an admission of weakness, which understandably we can feel reluctant to do.  But the truth is that we can all use a little help from time to time, in order that we can get back on with our lives and live them in the way we choose to.

I have experience of working with:- stress, relationship difficulties, anxiety, abuse, depression, trauma, bereavement, sleeping difficulties, bullying, low motivation, loss, life changing events, transitions, post traumatic stress disorder, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder, low self-esteem/confidence, performance anxiety, miscarriage, infertility, dissociation, exam nerves, public speaking, trust issues etc.
