When we are trying to juggle the needs or family, friends, work and/or study, we often bury our own fears and problems and hope that they will go away on their own. Perhaps through fear of feeling like we have ‘failed’ in some way, or that we are ‘letting someone down’, feelings of shame and guilt can overwhelm us and we put off seeking the help we need to overcome the challenges that life brings us. However, to seek help is not a sign of weakness but, rather, a sign of courage and a willingness to confront those challenges and do something about them.
I have worked with children, young people and adults for over 20 years, many of whom face a range of issues such as stress, anxiety, low self esteem, eating disorders, difficulties with drug and alcohol addiction, relationship issues, domestic violence and parenting issues. What they have all had in common is that they have found that courage to trust someone enough to open up to them which, I accept, is not always easy.
I can offer you a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space in which we can go at your own pace to explore your difficult feelings and issues together.
