I imagine you have arrived at this website because you are worried, stressed, anxious, depressed, or troubled by something that you have been struggling against for some time.

You might feel that it is only you that feels so bad, and everyone else is happy/has got life sorted out; but that is not true.

You are not alone

Here is what the National Health Service says:

"One in four adults and one in 10 children experience mental illness, and many more of us know and care for people who do."

NHS (2018)

Take a look around you when you are in a public place. A quarter of them are suffering mental health issues!

Might it help to talk to someone?

Something that can make your situation worse is the stigma or shame felt at being in difficulty, and it would be the reason you don't talk to others about what's on your mind.

The effect of this is the feeling of isolation you might experience, and although you probably know that sharing your burden helps, it isn't easy to find someone you want to do this with.

Safe Environment

However, if you enlist my services, I will listen to you and encourage you to talk about whatever troubles you so that you can share your burden in privacy and confidentiality.

I have lived enough to have experienced my own troubles, so have some understanding of what it's like to have mental health issues, but I also know I overcame mine.

I believe that with my support you can overcome your own troubles too.

Professional Standards

I have the professional training and experience to provide a counselling service to a standard where you are likely to notice a positive difference to the quality of your life soon.

My work is done according to the high standards of the BACP, of which I am a registered member, and should you not be happy with my work you would approach that organisation for advice.

See someone soon

I can offer you an appointment within a few days of initial enquiry, depending on whether you prefer face-to-face or online counselling.

It might be hard to imagine from where you are now, but there is hope: after all, aren't you looking for professional help? If so, that is a positive step.

"A journey of a thousand miles starts with one step."

Lao Tzu
(Chinese sage, 6th Century B.C.)

You have already taken that first step. Why not take another one? Meet the counsellor. >>
