We all experience anxiety at some time or other; it's our body’s way of keeping us safe from harm. But at times the symptoms of anxiety can get in the way of every day life, particularly if you're experiencing them alongside other issues such as depression.
The anxiety might be the result of a change in circumstance, a change in health or loss of income for example, or it might relate to confidence or self esteem issues e.g. do you feel anxious about what other's might think?
Either way, we can work together to understand your anxiety, identify your triggers and look at techniques and strategies as well as the negative thought patterns that often add "fuel to the anxiety fire".
Together, we can make the anxiety feel more manageable.
I am an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist providing therapeutic support to the charity’s members and partner beneficiaries. See my experience for more details.
Grief & Loss
We all experience loss and feelings of grief at some time or the other. It can be the loss of a loved one through bereavement or because a relationship has ended but also through changes in family dynamics e.g. if a child leaves home.
Redundancy and retirement can also bring feelings of loss, as in many ways it feels like a way of life has ended.
Perhaps you're experiencing a loss of confidence, in yourself/others/your health?
Together, we can look at the feelings you have around your loss; understand why they are important; and why thinking about the future might feel difficult right now.
Stereotyping, Discrimination, Expectations & Labels
As a British-born Asian divorced female counsellor, I'm very aware of how our lives and achievements can be limited by stereotypes, labelling and discrimination.
I'm passionate about challenging stereotypical beliefs.

- weighted down by high expectations? There's more about this on my blog page.
- feeling judged or discriminated against e.g. race, religion, gender, sexuality, work choices?
- feeling defined by your label e.g. a health diagnosis?
Stereotypes and labels can make us feel invisible. This impacts our self-esteem and confidence as well as relationships.
We can work together to challenge these limitations, understand your own measures of success and focus on how you would like your life to look and feel.
