Why you might come

Psychotherapy and counselling have been increasing in popularity for quite some times and are now seen as an accepted method of self care. It is no longer only used when life is overwhelming and for many it is a place to spend time for ourselves, where we can reconnect with our hopes, our fears and our Self.

Many people seek outside help when there is a crisis or things become really unmanageable and it may be one or several of the following issues that make you feel as though therapy is the next step:

  • Meaninglessness and emptiness

  • A bereavement or another type of loss

  • Anxiety or panic attacks

  • Repetition of painful and destructive cycles

  • Sexual abuse

  • Violence

  • Addiction to alcohol, drugs, sex, work or anything that makes your life unmanageable

  • Divorce

  • Destructive relationships

  • Illness; perhaps cancer or ME

  • Depression or overwhelming feelings

  • Eating disorders: such as bulimia, obesity

  • Phobias

  • Spiritual emptiness

  • Stuck and feeling unable to implement change

  • Unfulfilled potential

  • Loneliness

  • Anger or feeling out of control

  • Trauma and PTSD

  • An empty nest

  • Problems with cultural identity

  • Sexuality

  • Shameful feelings and thoughts
