Counselling for Adults
When you’re feeling stuck or unhappy with a certain part of your life it can feel really overwhelming. There’s so much advice and so many possible solutions out there that after unsuccessfully trying a few different things it can start to get disheartening and feel quite hopeless.
About 10 years ago I began to notice patterns in my behaviour that could be attributed to my early experiences. After much studying, research and clinical work with clients I now know that our early years hugely influence how we develop and go on to behave and experience things as adults. In our early years our brain and nervous system are developing and being primed to perceive life and react to things in our own unique and specific ways. The experiences we have in childhood and what’s modelled by those around us informs our understanding and experience of the world.
Counselling can give you the opportunity to reflect on your current circumstances and to work out what’s needed to move forward. Working with me allows you to consider your unique early start in life and the patterns created during this important time. Drawing on child development theories can be an enormously enlightening and powerful tool, offering a deeper awareness and understanding of ourselves. With this new understanding we naturally become able to see what we specifically need to shift and feel better.
How I can support you
I’ve had huge success offering support to adults either for current issues in the here and now or for unresolved difficulties from their past. The work I do allows you to discuss openly what is troubling you and consider new ways forward in a safe & non-judgmental setting.
Issues I have experience working well with include;
- Anger issues
- Breakdown in family relations
- Childhood issues
- Changes to family circumstances
- Health issues
- Parental guidance & boundaries
- Postnatal depression
- Social anxiety
- Stress management
- Suicidal feelings
- Work related issues
