From Childhood Pain to Adult Resilience:

Unwind Anxiety

Counselling for Adults Who Struggle with Anxiety Rooted in Childhood

Most parents do the best for their kids, but sometimes - and often through no fault of their own - they ‘drop the ball’.

This could be because they have a physical illness, mental health difficulty, addiction, live in poverty, care for an ill family member, or something else.

Sadly, it’s not only your positive childhood experiences that impact you long after you've grown; it’s the difficult ones too.

Now as an adult, you may recognise that you’re in a negative pattern but don't know how to change.

As a child,

  • Was it easier to keep unsettling things to yourself because they could have upset mum or angered dad?

  • Did (house)work seem more important than what happened to you?

  • Did your parents lose their patience with you even for minor mistakes?

Have your pent-up feelings come with you into adulthood, messing with your life?

  • Maybe under the weight of your churned-up feelings, you say things that put a strain on your relationships. And you’re worried that your loved ones will get tired of it.

  • Or overwhelming feelings in teams or around authority figures impede your work life.

  • Perhaps you can’t relax even in the sanctuary of your home, or on holidays.

If, as a child...

  • You experienced criticism or rejection,

  • Or there was a lack of enough support available,

  • Or you grew up experiencing tension, and often felt afraid,

It’s not surprising that anxiety has followed you into your adulthood.

Anxiety is a natural response to challenging experiences.

But you don’t have to live with anxiety.

Or with the pain of the past.

Hi, I‘m Erika

I work with adults who wonder whether their current difficulties are rooted in their childhood.

Counselling has helped me heal from the effects of childhood emotional neglect, abuse and trauma.

Since I qualified as a counsellor, I’ve worked with numerous clients who have overcome many shadows of an unsupportive childhood.

So, if you...

  • Believe that your past is impacting your present,

  • Want to feel comfortable in your own skin, and

  • Are ready to make a positive change,

I’ll help you put the pieces together so you can step away from negative patterns and steer your life in a new direction.

What Clients are Saying

I‘ve worked with many people just like you,

so don‘t struggle on alone.
