Sometimes our negative thoughts, feelings or behaviours from past events/situations or our current circumstances can cause us mental health problems and we need help to resolve them. If we do not make time to seek help, the issues that trouble us can develop becoming part of our everyday lives, making us feel unhappy or anxious, impacting on our daily functioning and coping, and also affecting those around us.
It could relate to an unhappy childhood, abusive current relationship, loss of job, traumatic car accident, current illness, family dispute, or even feeling a failure or worthless. In fact, we can experience dysfunctional thoughts and feelings around any event or interaction with others, leading us to make assumptions about ourselves which can quickly lead into negative core beliefs.
As a professional integrative CBT Counsellor based in Edinburgh, Scotland, I can help you to identify, understand and resolve any past or present mental health issues you may have, creating self-awareness of your past experiences, whilst helping you to achieve some form of closure or acceptance on what you have gone through, to help you to move on, alleviating symptoms such as anxiety and depression, using a range of counselling methods.
