Early in our lives, we learn how to cope with our feelings and experiences in our own unique way. Patterns of relating and coping with distress become familiar and continue to influence us throughout our lives at an unconscious level, affecting our behaviour and relationships at home and work.

Sometimes, our coping strategies and the ways we relate to others may become problematic. For instance, we may feel overwhelmed by grief, illness or painful events. Relationships may break down.

We may feel anxious or depressed. Counselling offers the opportunity to begin to make sense of what underlies our difficulties, come to terms with our losses and discover new perspectives, so we can begin to disentangle ourselves from the shackles of our past and live a more fulfilling life in the present.

What Clients Are Saying

I had tried several different counsellors throughout my life, both private and NHS but never seemed to make a connection. Trisha was recommended to me by a friend, and I can honestly say she has changed my life. She has made all sorts of connections about my life that I myself had never made, and things just seem so much clearer. She's so warm and easy to open up too, the sessions are laid back but productive. She has given me manageable goals and strategies to use outside of sessions that are actually effective. My friends and my partner all have commented about how different I seem, and I feel it. After years of trying to get better, I'm so thankful I've found Trish to guide me.

For the first time in a long time, I feel confident that my behaviour and thought patterns are changeable and I'm excited to continue on this journey.

Becky, 26, Manchester -

Thank you sooooo much, Becky. Your openness and determination to change was inspiring  and `it was a privilege to be part of your journey.
