Jane Edwards Counsellor , NW6
I am trained to Masters Degree level in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling to work with a range of issues and problems including:
•Depression and anxiety
•Abuse - sexual, emotional, physical
•Family & relationship problems
•Transitions & loss – e.g. entering adulthood; mid-life; parenthood; relocation; bereavement; loss of health; loss of status
•Crisis in identity – e.g. low self-esteem; poor body image; gender role conflict
I am particularly interested in how our media-defined, time-poor, competitive, technologically driven world appears to contribute to increased feelings of stress, which can become depression, anxiety, as well as physical illness if left untreated.
Human beings find ingenious ways to cope with too much stress and pressure. Not surprisingly exercise, yoga and meditation have boomed over recent years. But other ways that provide temporary relief, for example alcohol, recreational drugs, gambling, and newer behaviours such as sex addiction and internet addiction, ultimately add to our problems.
Therapy can't change the past; but it can be helpful to think about your life with a trained therapist, working together to identify ways to move forward and ultimately, find a more satisfying and valuable way to live.
