Are you struggling right now, facing a difficult time or feeling lost?
I’m here to support you.
Having had lived experience of trauma, bereavement, loss, anxiety and depression, I understand the difficult journey you might find yourself on. Every experience of life and mental health is unique; yet trauma, a bereavement and other types of loss are the most stressful experiences we can be faced with. They can often lead to complex responses such as anxiety, depression and loss of who you are.
You may find yourself struggling with things like:
Feeling like you’ve lost ‘normality’ and what once was
Depression and feelings of sadness
Shock and coming to terms with loss
Emotional pain and not knowing how to be with it
Stress in work, home or life in general
Anxiety and anxious feelings or panic attacks
Feeling like you’ve lost your sparkle or zest for life and low self-esteem
Traumatic experiences such as abuse, victim of crime or personal injury
Facing changes in life which feel outside of your control
Difficulties in relationships and / or with family members
It’s important to recognise when you need some support. It’s even more important that you don’t isolate yourself or try to “keep a lid” on your how you’re feeling. There is no need to feel guilty or like you’re failing. Asking for help is a strength. I’m here to listen and hold space for whatever you need.
As a result of the pandemic, we have adapted to interacting in more flexible ways. Current circumstances may pose additional challenges for some people.
I’m pleased to be able to offer one-to-one counselling and coaching both online and in-person, as well as some additional options for those who are currently impacted financially. Please ask for details.
We will agree together the regularity of your sessions, whether that be weekly, fortnightly or something else. All sessions take place in a safe and confidential space where you are free to talk in a warm, empathetic and non-judgmental environment.
Why choose to work with me one-to-one?
I’d love for you to get to know me a little better and understand why I chose to specialise in areas such as trauma, bereavement, loss, anxiety and depression.
I’ll share with you my story and own experiences of loss – sadly, there’s more than one.
Of course, this is also the part where I talk about my professional background. This is to reassure you that I’ve taken my training and on-going development seriously. More importantly, I want you to get to get a sense of who I am, and whether you’d like to explore working together.
Business support and consultancy
It’s more important than ever that your employees are treated with compassion and that your organisation understands how best to support people with mental health and wellbeing.
Taking the time to ensure your policies, procedures and support frameworks meet with the needs of your workforce will lead to a positive impact on the health and well-being of your workforce, as well as an enhanced reputation. I offer bespoke packages including training, group work and one-to-one counselling, dependant on your needs, so please get in touch to discuss further.
