Who I help

There are many reasons for seeking help. You may be feeling upset and distressed, or have problems in your relationships with others. You may have had a life-crisis like bereavement or redundancy, or may feel upset about something that happened some time ago. You may feel empty or lacking a direction, and that life makes little sense. Perhaps you want to have more confidence in your dealings with others.

Whilst on paper we can separate out distinct problem areas or issues – motivation, self-esteem, bereavement, abuse, sex, adoption, divorce etc – I see myself more as working with individuals, each with their own unique personality. In 10 years I have helped people with all sorts of issues. Perhaps it will help to know some of the issues people have come to me with:

  • abuse (sexual, mental or physical)
  • adoption
  • anxiety and panic
  • assertiveness skills
  • bereavement (including cot death)
  • depression and low mood
  • divorce and separation
  • eating or food-use disorders
  • ethnic identity
  • guilt about past behaviour
  • intimacy
  • motivation
  • relationship difficulties
  • self-esteem and self-confidence
  • sexuality
  • shyness
  • violence
  • workplace stress
