I am a fully qualified, accredited counsellor with hundreds of hours of experience working with clients both face to face and online.
I help clients deal with grief, loss, depression, anxiety, stress, identity problems and many more challenges that impact a person's wellbeing.
I am also fortunate enough to have insight into the effect of finding yourself on the outside of the JW organisation, whether this is through choice or disfellowshipping.
Working with ex-Jehovah's Witnesses
Many ex-Jehovah's Witnesses are in dire need of help in the form of counselling. Individuals commonly describe feelings of identity loss, anxiety, guilt, anger, disbelief and even hopelessness.
Unfortunately, ex-JW's also realise that what life was like, and how it is now, is something that seems impossible to explain to another person, unless they have some prior experience or knowledge.
This can cause many ex-JW's to avoid going to counselling due to the assumption that they will not be understood, which, in turn, leads to increased anxiety or frustration.
