Counselling in Shrewsbury for Anxiety, Trauma Recovery and Life Transitions

If you've landed on this page, there's a reasonable chance you're considering counselling as an option for you. You might also be wondering if I'm the right person to guide, support and help you along your journey.

The thought of coming to counselling may seem scary. However, talking about the things that are troubling you with someone who is here to listen, can help you to feel less alone in the world. I'm interested in learning about you, your concerns, your anxieties, how you see things and exploring your thoughts and feelings.

Initially, you may find it difficult to talk about how you're feeling and what you're going through. That's okay. All relationships are built on trust and it's important that you feel comfortable and connected during our working relationship. I won't tell you what to do and I won't judge you; no matter what issues you bring to counselling. Instead, I'll work with you, offering you help and support to achieve what feels right and what works best for you.

Get in touch for a free 20 minute phone consultation to discuss what's troubling you and I'll let you know how I can help.

Life transitions involve change. Even positive changes can create anxiety, stress and uncertainty. Adapting to change can be challenging; learning to embrace change creates new opportunities.

  • You may be experiencing high levels of general anxiety, making it hard to function in your everyday life

  • You may be suffering with social anxiety; finding it difficult to talk to people and attend social gatherings for fear of being judged by others.

  • You may be depressed, have low self-esteem, lack confidence and not know why or what to do about it

  • You may feel misunderstood, lonely and unsure of where to turn for support

  • You may be feeling suicidal and that life has become too painful and overwhelming

  • You may feel that your life is pointless and has no purpose

  • You may have experienced childhood trauma, sexual violence and domestic abuse

  • You may feel that your relationships are always difficult but you don't understand why

  • You may have feelings of sadness, guilt, shame or anger and not know how to manage distressing emotions

  • You may be consumed by grief from bereavement or the loss of a relationship that has left you feeling alone and isolated.

 

 

Whatever it is you're feeling, thinking and experiencing, you don't have to face it alone.  My aim is to provide a service that is inclusive; one that values individual differences, culture and diversity; offering help and support that is unique to each individual and accessible to everyone.
