Issues I can help you with

As an experienced therapist and Chartered Pyschologist, I have helped people with a wide range of issues.

I know that people sometimes wonder whether their issue is 'big enough' to seek help with. The truth is, this is your life - and if you have a goal to achieve, no-matter how big or small you feel it is, it's important, and I can help you get there. I talk to clients from all walks of life with all different backgrounds. No two people are the same and no two issues are the same - you will be treated completely as an individual. 

Typically, my clients come to me for help with:

• Phobias
• Anxiety/Generalised Anxiety Disorder
• Depression
• Relationship problems
• Stress
• Feeling tense
• Self-confidence/self-image issues
• Life crisis/life improvement
• Work issues
• Bereavement
• Trauma/Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

• Repeating life or relationship patterns
• Self-harm
• Sexual problems
• Emotional abuse
• Healing from sexual abuse/assault
• Self-awareness
• Anger management
• Anorexia Nervosa
• Bulimia Nervosa
• Personal development
• Challenges with studying away from home
• Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

I was struggling with feelings of depression and anxiety when I first started speaking to Ailis. I felt trapped in a cycle I couldn’t get out of and it was having a major impact on my life. Ailis has helped me understand where my feelings come from and how traumatic events in my past have contributed to how I feel. She has helped me come to terms with that and find new ways of thinking, and new ways of coping.
