Confidence and Self-esteem

Are you suffering from low self-esteem and feel as though you lack confidence? Counselling could be a solution for you. I can help you to boost your confidence and start to feel good about yourself.

Is your confidence at rock bottom?

Are you suffering with a lack of confidence and a low self-esteem? Do you feel as though "you aren't good enough" and worry about your job and your relationships?

Perhaps you find yourself wondering whether you'll be good enough for someone to really want to be with you or whether people really value you?

If you feel this way then counselling can help you boost your confidence and raise your self-esteem

Why do we get angry, where does it come from and why is it bad?

Our self-esteem and the way we feel about ourselves is really important; particularly when it comes to our careers and our relationships but things can happen in our lives such as the break up with a partner or losing our job that can have a huge impact on our sense of self-worth.

I’m sure I speak for many people who’ve experienced their “blood boiling” as anger surges, the horrible feeling of being told you have “anger issues”. The thing is, anger is natural, it’s part of our natural defences, part of our instinct, so getting angry from time to time is unavoidable.

Anger is part of a system that alerts us to danger and help's us respond to threats, indeed, anger can be the stimulus to changing many aspect of our lives that we are unhappy with. The problem arises when we can’t control our anger.

When we get angry, we trigger responses in our body that essentially make us ready for a fight; our heartbeat gets faster and adrenaline pumps around our body quicker. 

The trouble is, intense levels of emotions over a prolonged period can lead to anxiety, depression, high blood pressure and a lower functioning immune system, amongst other problems.

What can be done and how can anger management counselling help me?

One of the toughest lessons I had to learn and probably the most important thing about anger management is that you can’t control situations that might make you angry. Things will happen that will make you angry.

But you can learn to be in control of your own thoughts, feelings and emotions and how you respond to those situations. You can learn not to shout at your children. You can learn not to be provoked by your partner. You can learn not to get frustrated at work.

With anger management counselling you can learn to handle all kinds of anger issues ranging from frustration that’s quite mild to violent outbursts of rage.

I work with anger by offering people a confidential, safe space to explore what triggers your anger and get to the bottom of your frustrations.

You’ll find as we explore your anger, we shed light on other emotions that may be troubling you too such as shame, fear, guilt and embarrassment.
