Counselling for Anxiety & Relationship Problems

If you suffer from anxiety it is highly likely that you have relationship problems: they seem to go together.

These are just some of the symptoms you may be experiencing.

  • Overthinking
  • Worrying
  • Panic attacks
  • Lack of sleep
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Feeling irritable
  • Relationship breakdowns
  • Feeling lonely
  • Constant blaming
  • Bullying

Other issues, such as low self-esteem and depression are often involved too.

In such situations, it would be usual to have confusing thoughts and overpowering emotions, which just makes you feel even worse.


Counselling involves talking in confidence with a trained professional who listens to you without trying to 'fix' you, but who works with you so that you can understand and overcome what troubles you.

Talking to a trained counsellor can help you think more clearly and not be overcome so much by intense emotions, and so you can have a better quality of life.

I have over three years' experience of counselling in NHS Occupational Health and also a local charity, this being mainly around anxiety and relationship difficulties.

I have plenty of life-experience, providing an atmosphere of acceptance and understanding which makes it easier for you to explore things you find uncomfortable.

I provide counselling online or by telephone from my base near Rotherham, and face-to-face at private therapy rooms conveniently situated next to the M1 motorway nearby.

It's Good to Talk

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 help you feel able to confront your thoughts and feelings so you can make sense of everything and see yourself and the world in a different light.
