How Can Counselling Help During Quarantine & Pandemic?

Counselling can powerfully help you to regain control and feel more able to navigate this difficult time.  Here are some of the ways in which our team of psychotherapists can help you develop the ability to:

  • Reduce and better manage anxiety, panic, distressful thoughts and feelings
  • Reduce and prevent increases in symptoms of depression
  • Cope more easily and comfortably with enforced isolation
  • Cope better with uncertainties regarding work and finances
  • Managing relationship stressors and conflict constructively
  • Gain relief from separation anxiety

  • Better manage children displaying problematic behaviour and emotions
  • Cope with unexpected bereavement
  • Reduce PTSD symptoms being triggered
  • Calm and reduce the intensity of obsessive compulsions, thinking and fears
  • Support and help as you start to return to work and meet friends again

What are the Common Reactions to a Pandemic and Post Isolation?

The most common reaction to a pandemic is hyper-vigilance – being over-cautious and wary about things, such as when a person coughs or is not wearing a mask. These feelings can be exacerbated by the fear of contamination. Some people may have trouble concentrating, making decisions, or feel sad, angry or overwhelmed. Others may experience physical symptoms such as headaches, muscle aches, and stomach aches, or have disrupted sleeping and eating patterns. These are all normal reactions, and over time, as life gets back to normal, these feelings usually decrease.

After regularly hearing messages like “stay home and stay safe”, from July 2021 big changes took place.  Many activities that were restricted or closed resumed, and the wearing of face masks became voluntary.  For some, these changes caused an increase in tension and some felt more socially anxious than ever.  You are not the only one and if you are experiencing higher levels of anxiety, it’s understandable.

Empower Yourself – Building Self Confidence
Before meeting with Maggie, I had been feeling demotivated, lacking focus and very lonely…. Counselling was something I only considered when I felt there was nothing I could do. Retrospectively, this was incorrect. Maggie gave me support and provided me with the encouragement to empower myself to change. I had always found it hard to deal with questions, getting defensive. Maggie’s questions…helped me… I now realise… Read More

Overcoming Career Anxiety & Work Stress
I had never thought I was someone who would need counselling or therapy, as I had always been very strong. However when my career wasn’t going quite as I had planned it, I found I was becoming very negative and mentally spiralling out of control – in fact turning myself into a victim. Maggie was outstanding at providing me with what I needed, not as a “quick fix” but by giving me the tools to use whenever I may need… Read More
