Relieving anxiety

Counselling and Psychotherapy is a very effective means of support for anxiety disorders. A Counsellor can help you to identify what is a real threat in your life and what isn’t. Counselling will allow you to discover that the situations/problems in your life may not be the major cause of your anxiety, instead it can often be how you react to those problems that is the bigger issue.

What is Psychotherapy?

A confidential space for you to talk about what is occurring in your life, any struggles or challenges, unresolved issues, setbacks or a part of you that feels held back. Counselling explores your desired changes, options and choices and any conflict with yourself, what you long for or any existential concerns.

Counselling may offer a different perspective, feedback or guidance, opportunities to develop a greater understanding of who you are and make sense of your life. We can look in depth not only at the symptoms, but also your core issues and the causes and what these might mean for you.

What to expect?

We offer Psychodynamic and Person Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy. This will be discussed in your first consultation to suit individual needs. Psychodynamic counselling refers to the whole person (as mind, spirit, self) and deals with ways that past experiences relate to the present (the here and now).

The goal of Person Centred Counselling is to provide you with the opportunity to develop a sense of self where you can realise how attitudes, feelings and behaviour are negatively affected and make an effort to find your true positive potential. You will be free to explore thoughts and feelings, positive and negative, without danger of rejection or condemnation.
