Welcome to Change Counselling

Mental Wellbeing Through Change

Do you ever have thoughts like 'I'm so anxious all the time'. 'I wish I was thinner/more attractive/more confident'. 'I'm afraid of having a panic attack'. Are you feeling stressed out, overwhelmed, lost in life? Do you ask yourself 'Can I ever have a life without anxiety'?


Hi, I'm Catherine McFadden, I'm a fully qualified and accredited counsellor, and I help people overcome anxiety, stress and emotional pain and find calm again.  I chose to do this work because it is deeply fulfilling to see each person that I work with heal and grow into the person they are meant to be. I would love to help you find your full potential. How do I help? 

I'll help you identify the problematic thoughts behind your anxious feelings. I can help you to identify blocks which may be holding you back, and learn how to move beyond them. I will also suggest ways of how to cope with the challenges of life nowadays, perhaps involving behavior and lifestyle changes, and ultimately soothing your anxious feelings. 

After doing these sessions with me, you should find yourself thinking "I CAN overcome anxiety", "these negative beliefs don't have to rule my life anymore", "I feel confident and calm again" and "yes, I do deserve to live free from pain and worry". Call now to set up your first session and get this process in motion!
