Counselling for Anxiety & Relationship Problems

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. I specialise in working with people to overcome anxiety and relationship problems.

You might experience some of the following:

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

Anxiety and relationship problems are linked because each reinforces the other.

I get how you might find it difficult to freely be who you are, and that if you find yourself always pleasing other people rather than yourself. Thinking about it brings feelings of being worth less than others.

I understand that poor sleep can be caused by overthinking: thoughts going round and round, and that this would be exhausting. You can easily get frustrated with yourself as a result. In time you might even get depressed about the way you have become.

I think that sounds very hard on you. Don't you deserve a break from all the negativity?

I have some idea of how it feels to stand in your shoes, and I realise how hopeless it can seem. However, it's certain that if you and I can find a way of working together, things will change for you.

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 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.

If that sounds interesting to you, how's about reading more or asking me a question?
