Acknowledging that you need help or support doesn’t mean you are weak, self-indulgent or crazy. Considering the ever growing demands of the modern world, where many people constantly juggle family and work commitments often without the benefit of traditional support networks of previous generations, counselling could be seen as a necessity rather than a luxury.

Emotional problems don’t go away by trying to ignore them. In fact we are increasingly recognising the link between psychological and physical health.

Suppressing strong feelings can lead to such symptoms as sleep disturbance, headaches, aches and pains in other parts of the body and lack of energy. It can also lead to unhealthy behaviour such as drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders and destructive or codependent relationships. Does any of this sound familiar?

If you live in or near Manchester, counselling and psychotherapy with me can help you to accept yourself as you are, and also to make the changes that you want. Counselling can make your life more satisfying and help you to reach your full potential.

Often people begin to get in touch with their inner strength and empower themselves in different ways. Many of the limitations and inadequacies that we experience as adults are self-imposed during our formative years. With appropriate support, it is possible to grow and to find new and better ways of feeling secure and fulfilled.
