Counselling for Anxiety & Relationship Problems

I provide a confidential counselling service, online or by telephone from my base in Wath upon Dearne, Rotherham, and face-to-face at private therapy rooms in Hoyland, Barnsley. I specialise in helping people to overcome anxiety and relationship problems.

Symptoms of Anxiety

If you suffer from anxiety, you might experience some of the following symptoms:

  • Overthinking
  • Poor sleep
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Restlessness
  • Panic attacks
  • Avoiding others
  • Frequent arguments
  • Constant blaming
  • Bullying

How Anxiety Works

Anxiety makes it difficult to freely be who you are, and if you are not yourself you are not relating to others as yourself. You may try to hide who you are from others, but that doesn't make for satisfactory interactions with them and you worry what others think of you. Then you feel anxious, and you're back to the start.

What can be done about this?

The answer is, it takes time. However, it's certain that if you and I can find a way of working together, things will start to change for you.

Private & Confidential

I can provide you with a safe space where you can share your troubles in privacy and confidentiality. Once your counselling is under way, like so many others, you will find it much easier than you thought to turn things around.

Counselling helps you see things in a new light

I offer an environment of warm acceptance and I try to see things from your point of view.

Issues Dealt With

These are the main areas of experience I have:

Appointments Available

Why go on a waiting list for several months when you could begin your therapy with me within a few days of making contact?

If you are not sure about what it would be like to speak with me, I offer a free 30-minute phone consultation so you can get an idea.

See things in a new light

Recent media focus on talking about mental health is useful because not dealing with issues stops you making changes.

Whoever you are, whatever troubles you have, my aim as a counsellor is to enable you to express your thoughts and feelings so you can make sense of everything and see yourself and the world in a different light.
