We are told that we shouldn’t stress, that we should be positive, we shouldn’t worry so much, that our life will be so much better as a result, and it’s probably true.
It sounds really easy in theory, too.
But what if you can’t just magically click your fingers and become happy-go-lucky, enthusiastic, driven to succeed? What if you can’t bring yourself to tell anyone that you are struggling, either? You can then end up feeling like a failure.
Maybe it’s safer to just do nothing, say nothing, than to show any weakness or insecurity.
This can feel like a place of safety, but it’s a subtle trap that keeps you in a place of constantly changing anxiety. It doesn’t have to be this way. There are ways of exploring your emotions safely, with support, to enable you to feel better about who you are.
Let me help you.
I’m Jon, and I work with people like you to reduce their anxiety and feel better about themselves by making positive change in their lives.
Many of the messages I have received in my life seemed to add up to one thing – I will never amount to anything. I had to act a certain way to be loved. I had to be a certain type of person to fit in. I had to support this team, join this club, live my life how others wanted. This meant I spent quite a big part of my life feeling as if I was not good enough, and then feeling isolated as I couldn’t tell anyone.
Once I worked out what was really going on for me, once I got the help I needed, it led me into wanting to help people just like you.
I have completed over 200 client hours, which have included work with adults from various backgrounds with wide-ranging emotional problems. I am an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society, meaning I am on a register that has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
