Anxiety

Anxiety can present itself in a range of different emotional and physical ways. If a person is displaying symptoms of feelings of dread, irritability, nervousness or experiencing heart palpitations, sleeplessness (amongst other symptoms), they may be suffering from anxiety.

Counselling can help equip you with the tools to build healthy and constructive thought patterns.

Stress

When people are under pressure, mentally or emotionally, this can result in feelings of stress. Everyday life can be stressful, and many people live with stress without realising the impact it can have on their health and psychological wellbeing.

 

A non-judgemental, trained therapist can help you move away from a stressful way of living.

Depression

People who are suffering from depression often have to cope with a wide range of physical effects and troubling emotions. This can impact on day to day life and lead people to withdraw from relationships, feeling isolated or trapped within their depression.

 

Talking therapies have been found to be very effective in helping people with their depression.

Bereavement

Bereavement can impact all aspects of life. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, the way a person responds to bereavement is unique to themselves. Common responses include despair, numbness, anger and feelings of sadness. 

A counsellor can offer support during the process of bereavement and provide a safe space to talk openly about your feelings during this period of loss.

Relationships

Relationship health is intrinsically linked with our individual mental health. Relationship difficulties can be prompted by many reasons, including children leaving home, infidelity, bereavement in the family or from other major life crisis.

Seeking counselling for relationship difficulties can improve communication in a mutually beneficial way and aid the process of working through problems.

Trauma

Traumatic events can come out of the blue, and the shock and distress can leave us feeling like our world has been turned upside down. Experiencing feelings of fear and confusion are normal responses to a traumatic experience, but can interfere and impact on everyday life.

Therapy can help people come to terms with trauma, find perspective, and move forward with their lives.
