Dealing with Lifes Transitions
When your future is filled with questions, it is normal to feel vulnerable. We can feel very uncomfortable with uncertainty, as anxiety is caused when we suffer a loss.
Dealing with Bereavement and Loss
“I attended Janette last year. She helped me transform my life I was suspicious of therapy but her eclectic and clever approach helped me figure out how to make some changes, to not be afraid to assert myself and to simply say no sometimes😉. I will always have to watch my instincts to solve problems and revert to bad ways of coping but being aware of why i react how do continues to help me be stronger and happier. “Cora ( Name changed to protect privacy)
“Attending psychotherapy sessions with Janette has been life changing for me. Her help and guidance has enabled me to overcome a lengthy dark period in my life. At each session I was met with a friendly face, in a safe and calm environment where I felt completely supported. Throughout my time in therapy we visited mindfulness, self care and CBT- all of which have been extremely beneficial to me.Kevin ( Name changed to protect privacy)
