Welcome to Willowside Counselling

Do you feel disconnected from yourself, others and the world?  If so, has your ’emotional suitcase’ become too heavy to lift?

If it has, life may feel something like this:

  • Overwhelming
  • Relationships are strained or breaking down
  • It has become difficult to voice what you need
  • You feel anxious, depressed or that you have lost your way

Sometimes communication within our relationships breaks down, which creates conflict, distance and pain.  Our worries may seem jumbled up, or like they are growing bigger and unmanageable by the day.  It can, therefore, become very difficult to make sense of ourselves, others, our emotions and even our lives.  

So, you may need some help to:

  • Unpack that case
  • Sort through the contents
  • Find clarity

Being human, relationships are an important part of our lives.  We are born to attach and to belong in order to survive and develop.  We can have relationships with everything and everyone, including ourselves and these relationships throughout our lives can bring us happiness and fulfilment.  However, when they go wrong, or we lose someone, it can feel as if everything is just falling apart.  We can turn our pain inwards to ourselves or outwards to others.  

Sometimes it may be very difficult to talk about this with family or friends, for fear of judgement or being a burden, or maybe we just don’t want to.

I work with individuals to improve communication, relationships, self-esteem, self-awareness, reconnecting people to themselves and those around them and ultimately empowering clients to live their best life.

So, if any of this resonates with you, then you are in the right place……
