The current corona crisis lockdown and self-isolation can feel overwhelming for many people. Our regular way of life suddenly became impossible to continue and although wanting to return to our old way of living, we might also need and want to learn to adapt to the new “normal”.
Feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, anxious, worn out, depressed and stressed are just some of the many ways we might react to what is happening around us and within us.
Looking for help is not a sign of defeat, not now and not ever; it should be seen as one of many ways we can look after ourselves in these trying times. If you think talking might help you to process what you are going through, then please, get in touch.
Counselling and psychotherapy can help us to find clarity by talking through these issues and thereby gaining a deeper understanding of ourselves, our feelings and needs. The term counselling is usually used when we refer to short to medium term therapy looking at specific issues, while the term psychotherapy is usually used for longer term to open-ended exploration of the self, although these terms can overlap.
During our sessions I aim to provide a safe and non-judgemental space for you to explore your issues. This could be anything from low self-worth, anxiety, stress, bereavement and anger to relationship difficulties, work problems and sexual identity, although this list is not exhaustive.
