Depression

 Testimonials


“I’d been suffering with depression and anxiety for over 10 years. After my second counselling session I managed to go to the shops by myself, which was a huge achievement for me.”  


“I was depressed.  I'd been taking antidepressants for over 3 years and was working in an unfulfilling job.   After 20 sessions, with the non-judgemental therapeutic support from my highly skilled therapist, I have been empowered to come off my antidepressants and I've started a new job within a company that values me and my skills.”  


“It's been a life changing experience! During the first session, I felt that I was on the bottom rung of the ladder. I didn't realise the potential that I had inside of myself.  Discovering my box of life, with my thoughts, feelings and potential has been tremendously beneficial to me.” 
  
Therapeutic suppport for anyone affected by depression

I am also particulary concerned about the increasing use of antidepressant drugs to deal with normal but painful feelings.  Prescriptions for antidepressants are at an all time high, up by 100% since 2015.

I know there is an alternative to antidepressants for many people. Experts estimate that a third of people in the UK, taking antidepressants long-term, have no clinical reason to continue them and could try stopping treatment.  (Cruickshank, G et al. Mental Health in Family Medicine, 2008)

I have extensive knowledge and 15 years of experience of working with people affected by depression, in my past profession as a nurse within the NHS, as a Missionary of Charity aspirant I worked with countless men, women affected by depression and as a Psychotherpist.

I specialise in helping clients address the root causes of depression.
