Liberate Counselling, Wath upon Dearne, Rotherham

Counselling for Anxiety and Anger: Gain Confidence & Upgrade Your Life

I am a counsellor in Wath upon Dearne near Rotherham. I can help free you from the bain of anxiety or anger to save relationships and find meaning in life.

Life isn't always kind, and troubles usually all come at once. If you experience anxiety or anger, it can feel like you are out of control. For example, it's as if you can't seem to stop overthinking, worrying, or doubting yourself. It's like self-torture. You might obsess about everything, and it seems you're living in your head.

You used to be so relaxed, but now you're so jumpy. You desperately try to fix things, but when you can't, you react in frustration with anger and say things you regret. You might feel terrified of being rejected and your relationship breaking up. You might experience other symptoms, too, like irritability, poor concentration, poor sleep, and even panic attacks. You don't know how much more you can take.

I've lived a bit and know the anguish of self-blame through messing up life and relationships. I know the desperate feeling when you want to make life good again, but you are under such pressure so I will support you with compassion to reach your goals.

I guess you are here because you are looking for counselling, and you're hoping to feel better as quickly as possible too.

Feel Better Fast

I know that when I give you my full attention, you should start to feel lighter immediately because that's what sharing your burden does.

Telling me what you are going through should be easy because I am not confrontational and because you can talk to me with confidence that your personal experiences are kept private. I will support you without offering advice because I know that you need to take charge of your own recovery.

Of course, complete recovery will take longer than a few sessions, but if you find me easy to talk to, that will be a great help in exploring your past and present in detail.

Live Life to The Max

No doubt you will want to get rid of the discomfort you currently experience, but ultimately, you want to live the kind of life of your own choosing - a good life and in your own view. You should be able to do this through finding confidence, self-understanding, self-compassion, and forging closer relationships. I believe that I can help you to live to the max through a journey of self-discovery in therapy.

The service I provide also offers the following benefits:

  • Male counsellor - some people prefer male counsellors
  • Flexible hours - sessions from morning until late evening
  • Online counselling available - therapy from where you are
  • Free consultation - see if we are a good fit at no cost to you
  • Prompt reply - "usually responds in an hour" - Google
  • Faster appointment - much shorter waiting list than statutory or voluntary services

If you've never seen a counsellor before, you might have a few questions you'd like me to answer before you go any further.

What is Counselling?

Counselling is a talking therapy that helps you feel better by exploring your thoughts and feelings with a trusted professional. Your counsellor would work with you to examine your perspectives so you can find solutions yourself.

In counselling it's very likely you would become more clear about what you want from life or what kind of person you are.

Here's a tip for you: a true sense of self is effective in bringing you peace of mind.

Counselling helps you find who you are

"I felt I could understand more about who I am and what my future expectations are."

ML - 30th March 2018

That's right: this person found a clearer sense of self and direction: and so could you!

Generally speaking, it takes courage to take the steps you are thinking of taking. So well done for overcoming the stigma that society puts on you if you have problems, and actually trying to do something about them.

"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 England - "Mental Health"

Would Talking to a Counsellor Help?

If you fear judgement, a counsellor would be an ideal person to talk to. I know that you need to feel able to talk freely about all the aspects of your life because it might just be that the one area you hold back on stops you from becoming whole.

Counselling progress hinges on how comfortable you feel talking to your counsellor.

"The things you want to talk about are hard to share with the people you know."

Free Consultation

I offer a free 30-minute consultation to help you decide if I am the right person for you. You could use either a video app or telephone for this - whichever is most comfortable for you. Alternatively, your free consultation could be part of your first face-to-face appointment, which would last up to one hour - for just £20.

Covid-19 Update (1st June 2021)

Online therapy is, of course, Covid safe since we would not have to meet in person. However, I am now also taking bookings for face-to-face sessions.

There are some safety precautions in place. These include regular room cleaning, hand sanitising on entry, chairs distanced at 2 metres, and notices reminding everyone to inform me if any Covid symptoms occur. I will also wear a mask if you prefer.
