Welcome

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward,

for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”  Leonardo da Vinci 

If you have found this site, then I imagine you are looking for a solution to some issue that you wish to resolve in your life, from a simple phobia to more complex issues that includes symptoms of anxiety or depression. Life has a habit of throwing up challenges that make us question whether we are good enough, smart enough or beautiful enough. Relationships become problematic and even if they are good, sometimes we wonder if there is not something more ‘out there’. Often, we turn to addictive substances or behaviours to mask our pain without realising it. Most of us suffer from addiction to substances (coffee, alcohol, drugs – prescription or otherwise) and/or to behaviours (overworking, anger, despair, social phobia, internet etc.).

But the biggest issue trending is identity crisis – we don’t know who we really are deep down, what our values are or where we want to go in life. We can feel overwhelmed during our school years by the challenges of the school curriculum, bullying or circumstances at home. The competitive nature of our working life, difficult relationships and endless drive for productivity can be daunting as work/life/balance becomes challenging. Even on retirement when our busy life is over and we imagine a life of leisure, we are faced with insignificance, loss of social contact, a question about our meaning and purpose in life. Losing family and friends through bereavement at any stage in life can stop us in our tracks and ask the meaningful questions ‘what’s it all about?’ before returning to whatever addiction and mindlessness that gets us through the day.

If you want to stop, look and take action, then give me a call. I may not have all the answers but I have a good listening ear, empathy and enough life experience to understanding issues at a deeper level. Many clients have completed therapy having resolved their issues and/or feeling more empowered to tackle what life puts their way. It is possible to release the effects of past traumas, grief, anxiety, identity issues and many other issues with professional help. If you are ready to make a commitment to self-care, then call or text me on 086-3446673. I look forward to hearing from you.

For emergencies (where you are at risk of hurting yourself or someone else), please call 999 or go to your nearest emergency room.
