Do feel overwhelmed by negative and painful thoughts?
Depression and anxiety are when sadness about the past or fear of the future seem endless and bottomless yet somehow cause-less and impossible to think your way out of.
Do we place these problems before another and say ‘fix me’, or do we retain our own sense of agency and seek our own understanding of what we are experiencing?
Many people find it is better to regard their depression or anxiety as a state instead of an illness, as a difficulty rather than a defect. Therapy can help you question what is really important and re-orient yourself in relation to your difficulties, in such a way as to feel most like your true self.
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
Feel yourself again
I can help you to make sense of the difficulties that you are going through, in your own terms, and find the solutions that are right for you. The person-centred approach to therapy, counselling and coaching is based on the idea that the right questions and answers lie in you. I won’t tell you what you should do.
My role as therapist is to provide the environment that helps you to gain the insights and confidence that you need to grow as a person. You will not be patronised, because you are the best expert on you.
