Every one of us at some point in our lives experience challenges and emotional difficulties. These can make us feel anxious, distressed and overwhelmed. Sometimes we turn to those around us for support, yet this may not feel enough. However it may feel difficult to ask for help. This is when counselling/psychotherapy may help. Perhaps you feel embarrassed or ashamed, these are very natural feelings. I will endeavour to make this process as comfortable as possible.
