Are you looking for a counsellor or therapist for yourself or a young person in Winchester or the Hampshire area?
Does life feel like it's getting on top of you? Could you benefit from a person to talk to? Is the loneliness of feeling this way getting you down? You might feel anxious, edgy or nervous? Have you had difficulty coping when things go wrong? Perhaps you lack motivation and daily life is an uphill struggle. Maybe you feel different or that you don't belong? You might find that having low self-esteem or low self-confidence is stopping you live your life to the full. If these issues are affecting your life then it's good to seek support.
Maybe your eating habits are worrying you? It could be something that has got out of control? Are you feeling confused about disordered eating or obsessions with appearance and exercise? It might feel that you have no one to talk to, no one that understands. It could be that your relationships are suffering as a result. I have a special interest in working with Eating Disorders. Seeking help is a brave, sensible step and I can help with this.
Do you feel alone, unhappy or feel that you have no one to turn to?
Have you avoided events, people or situations because you are frightened? Are you a person who struggles with relationships? If the answer is yes to any of those questions then you are not alone and I can help you. I have experience working with people on the autistic spectrum and people with ADHD, both male and female. I can adapt the way I work to suit your needs.
