Sally Brown

Would you like to feel calmer, more confident or less anxious? Would you like to have a firm foundation of self-belief that you can rely on? Or perhaps you feel stuck – you know you need to make a change in your personal or professional life, but you can’t seem to make it happen.

A good therapist is far more than just a listening ear. Therapy can be challenging, and at times it can seem like hard work. My aim is to help you understand the default patterns of thinking and behaving that are holding you back from feeling content, having healthy relationships, or being successful. Therapy can give you insight and a new perspective on the way you operate in life. Ultimately, it’s about taking responsibility for how you feel, and whether you want to feel a different way.

Therapy can help you deal with difficult feelings and circumstances, and find a way forward during times of upheaval and challenge. But you don’t need to be ‘messed up’ to benefit from therapy. To the outside world, your life may look like it’s functioning well. But you may be struggling inside, dealing with worries, feelings of stress and anxiety, or just a persistent low mood. Or perhaps you have a feeling of ‘is this it?’ about your life, even though you have a lot to be grateful for.

You may be wondering if seeking support is an indulgence, telling yourself that you should be able to cope on our own. The truth is that our  emotional wellbeing is just as important as our physical health, and we all have times when we could benefit from professional help. A course of therapy can help you feel happier, calmer and more in control. It can help you to see the changes that need to be made, and give you the confidence you need to make them.
