Life presents challenges and complexity that at times feel overwhelming. Other times situations evoke unexpected reactions or stuff from the past makes its presence felt but we don't really know what to do with it. A point can come where feelings of anxiety, depression, grief and loneliness can get difficult to manage and need to be shared. 

If you feel this way it is important to reach out and make contact. Psychotherapy and counselling offer you evidence-based ways of dealing with these challenges.

The evidence shows that talking helps. Talking to a professional is likely to offer the containment, expertise and frame in which such stuff can be safely explored.

Many different people with vastly different needs and concerns courageously walk through the door of my therapy room every day. Below are just some of the issues they bring with them to explore in privacy and confidentiality.

Psychotherapy can not only help you through dangerous depression, trauma and anxiety, but it can also be useful when you don’t feel completely comfortable with yourself, or you feel awkward around others, or you don’t like how your life is unfolding.
