What sort of things bring people to counselling?
I have encountered all of these presenting issues and client groups
and counselling is an evidence based intervention with proven 'success'
in many instances:
Depression Work Stress PTSD Worry Negative Thinking Uncertainty Suicide Relationship issues Phobias Anxiety LGBTQ issues Relationship/Couples Fear Loss Low confidence Violent or disgusting unwanted intrusive thoughts Family difficulties Self Esteem Sexual Problems Panic disorder Guilt Miscarriage Social Phobia Workplace Bullying Gender issues Mental Health ANGER Chronic Fatigue Syndrome CFS Sexuality PAIN Obsessive Compulsive Disorder OCD Deafness Health Anxiety Chronic Diagnoses (Cancer, Diabetes) Relationship Breakdown Affairs Betrayals Divorce Grief Upset Bereavement Rape Violent behaviour (Emotional, Physical, Sexual) Abuse Obsessions Debt Stress Adults Students Young People Problems Redundancy Unhappiness Sadness Cultural issues Feelings Confusion Self Harm Suicidal thoughts Trauma Attack Pregnancy Termination Flashbacks Domestic Violence Bi-Polar Eating Disorders Personality Disorder Pet loss Men's
Issues Ageing RAGE Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse Crying Low Mood Personal Development Terminal Illness LOVE Anorexia Unwanted inrusive thoughts Disgust Isolation
Over-eating Meaninglessness Groundlessness Death, yours, your
loved ones, oh, and worries about going to hell.
specialisms are Anxiety, OCD, Health Anxiety, relationship difficulties
(with one partner) and 'difficult' cases; working with all presenting
issues whether chronic, upsetting or developmental. I especially work
with people who are fearful that they are bad, really bad, and having
unwanted intrusive thoughts about it.

help make it easier for the client to talk about things, and to gently focus on
the important parts of the process.
You just need to come willingly to talk, reflect and make changes..."
