Life can throw many things at us, when we are diagnosed with cancer or have a friend or relative who is, our lives can be blown apart! Our usual resources depleted, we may feel we have exhausted our coping strategies, this can leave us feeling tired, drained, with little or no motivation. Or we might find ourselves in the same difficult situation over and over again and begin to wonder how we get there.
Certain life events can have a traumatic effect, leaving us feeling anxious or depressed a bereavement, illness, change in family circumstances, relationship breakdown. time, mindfulness brings about long-term changes in mood and levels of happiness and wellbeing. Scientific studies have shown that mindfulness not only prevents depression, but that it also positively affects the brain patterns underlying day to day anxiety, stress, depression and irritability so that when they arise, they dissolve away again more easily.
Our therapists are committed to offering you a confidential, therapeutic space where you can examine and explore your issues. Our belief is that whatever your problems/difficulties, you hold the solutions. Anxiety and depression can often prevent us from seeing clearly and we sometimes need help to find a way forward, counselling can be a sage space for you to do this, without being judged or pushed in anyway.
Therapies are available Wednesday and Thursday
