Feelings of stress or anxiety

Panic attacks

Relationship problems

Grief, loss or bereavement

Problems with addiction

Trauma and post-traumatic stress



Problems with confidence or self-esteem

Anger management

Issues relating to sexuality

Difficulties at work or in retirement

Problems with family or school life

It's normal to feel unsettled and uneasy when big changes happen, whether they are personal or affect the wider world.

We need to give ourselves time to adjust to current changing circumstances. We need to give those around us time to adjust too.

There are so many unknowns; feeling powerless causes most of us to develop an intense desire take control of the things we can still control.

When our brains are registering fear, shock, distress and grief, this affects our bodies. We respond by mobilising our safety responses - usually to become very energised and 'fight' against the 'enemy', to become very active and run away, or to become very still, freezing our movements and 'playing dead' until the danger has passed. None of us have conscious control over these responses, and all of us react differently. This is our innate survival instinct; we focus only on what is important to us.

You may find that you are reacting very differently to people around you, but cannot make yourself do anything else. It is important to be kind to yourself; notice your feelings and allow them to be there. Remind yourself that it's OK to feel the way you do at this time, and that your focus will change as time passes. It is easy to concentrate on the things we fear, rather than finding the things we can use to bring hope into our life.

Maybe you need somebody to speak to about what has been happening for you. I am an experienced accredited psychotherapist and counsellor, working in Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne & Wear for more than twenty years. I will work with you in a safe, calm and confidential way online, by telephone or in person. We can discuss what is right for you during your first session.

I also offer supervision or consultation to therapists, health care and allied professionals.
