Anxiety Counselling

Helping you overcome your anxiety through counselling and psychotherapy

Are you unhappy with how things are?

At times it feels like:

  • Your anxiety takes over all the time, when it’s not active you’re just waiting on it starting back up again
  • Are you a chronic people pleaser who continually puts others' needs in front of your own?
  • You are always busy but feel like you get nowhere

Is it time to:

  • Decide you’re not going to let your anxiety or trauma take over
  • Start looking after your own needs first. BTW this is not selfish, it’s necessary!!!
  • Have a more balanced life and learn to switch off at times

I'm Julie and I help people take back control of their anxiety.

We can all feel anxious at times though too much anxiety can become overwhelming and feel like there is no way out.

The good news is that anxiety can become manageable and as a counsellor, I can help you with this.

When left unattended anxiety tends to get worse rather than better. It starts as a tiny monster in your head and when left unattended, takes the opportunity to grow arms and legs before getting bigger and taking over.

If it’s time for you to give the monster in your head the boot, get in touch with me today to book an appointment.

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is a perfectly natural reaction that can be emotional, mental or physical in response to events or trauma that have happened, are about to happen, or we think are going to happen.

We experience anxiety when we are under threat or feel we are about to be under threat.

The impact of anxiety varies from person to person. Everyone has a different tolerance level. This can vary depending on how you are feeling, what is going on in your life, even how good a sleep you got the night before.

When we feel threatened we automatically respond in 1 of 3 ways - fight, flight or freeze.

We may freeze initially to decide whether to fight or flight (run away).

Although anxiety is a perfectly normal response, it can become a problem when it gets in the way of you living your life comfortably.

If anxiety is getting in the way of you living your life comfortably, please get in touch to make an appointment today.

Loss and Bereavement

Helping you find a way through your loss

Are you feeling stuck?

Do you?

  • You wake up and dread the day ahead for no reason
  • When you finally have a bit of fun you end up feeling guilty for that moment of happiness
  • You get caught up in looking after others in an attempt to avoid your thoughts and feelings

Would you like to?

  • Wake up looking forward to the day ahead
  • Start having fun without the guilt creeping in and ruining the moment
  • Deal with your thoughts & feelings so they no longer feel scary

I'm Julie and I help people come to terms with their loss and find a way to move on.

When you lose someone or something it can stop you in your tracks as you deal with the fallout. This is perfectly normal but when you become stuck in it, this creates problems and can hinder you from moving forward in your life.

Things may never be the same again, but we can work together to get a better idea of how things will look in your world moving forward. This may help lessen your pain and accept your new reality.

Loss and Bereavement

Loss does not need to be a death. Many types of loss can be life-changing and unfortunately inevitable.

Grieving is very personal for each of us, how we grieve and for how long is different for everyone.

We can move through a wide range of emotions very quickly. This can be unsettling, upsetting and exhausting.

During the first year you may have support during the first milestones; birthdays, anniversaries, significant dates and holidays.

It can be harder going into the second year of bereavement.

Don’t compare your grief to others. They may look ok but are grieving in private or they may be in denial of their grief.

Comparing yourself to others may only make you feel worse.

Therapy can help you to explore your grief without fear of upsetting others or being silenced by comments such as “we’re all feeling it”. You can voice what you are feeling without fear of judgement.

If you're ready to move on, please get in touch to make an appointment today.
