Welcome, thanks for dropping by.

You may have found this site because you are considering psychology for yourself or someone you care about. Taking the first step and making initial contact is never easy.

Life is rarely without its challenges. There are some days that can be so overwhelming that it seems impossible to move on. Whether it’s the death of a loved one, overwhelming feelings of anxiety or anything else causing you distress in your day-to-day life, it’s important you know that help is available for every problem life throws your way.

We all have a bit of a negative voice in our head from time to time. But if your negative self-talk is stopping you from doing what you want or need to do in your life, then it’s not helping you and it has to go.

Your recurring problems will directly be related to your self-talk, beliefs and values. If you or a loved one are experiencing consistent problems, or are just sick of the negative chatter, please feel welcome to get in touch.
