Freud described therapy as improving the ability 'to love and work'.
What sort of problems might therapy help me with?
People have contacted me when they were struggling with emotional problems such as:
feeling stressed or anxious
feeling depressed, sad or empty
difficulties at work or with studies
trying to overcome an addiction
difficulties relating to sexuality
an inability to make or sustain good relationships
repeatedly becoming involved in unsatisfactory or destructive relationships
coming to terms with losses such as bereavement, divorce or redundancy
lacking confidence, self-esteem or under achieving
lacking a sense of purpose in life
having unresolved issues from the past
Counselling and psychotherapy take place in a private and confidential setting. It is a one-to-one collaborative process between the person seeking help and myself.
I provide a safe, calm and confidential environment, where you can identify, explore and work through what is troubling you.
Through the relationship between us, I aim to help you discover and develop new and effective ways of approaching your life.
Counselling might be more appropriate to help you through a difficulty that has arisen recently such as a bereavement or a relationship breakdown. It would be once weekly, open ended. You might feel ready to leave after a few months.
Psychotherapy works with more complex and more established difficulties that are often a result of childhood experiences. This approach is a good way to address more general feelings of sadness or feeling ‘something’s not quite right’. This work would also be once weekly and would be open ended and would allow you as much time as you want to take.
I have undertaken rigorous trainings in counselling and psychotherapy and offer both options within my practice.
