Tracy Jenkins ADIP, MA Psych, UKCP, Couples & Supervision Dip.
Whereas counselling is often sought in times of crisis, psychotherapy tends to be a much deeper and longer process which is designed to enhance personal and self-development by exploring the fundamental meaning and direction of your life and uncovering your true human potential.
I will assist you to explore your hopes, dreams and values in weighing up the various possibilities that present you when confronted by life's dilemmas and obstacles
Adopting an existential philosophy, I am experienced in psychodynamic psychotherapy which concentrates on uncovering hidden feelings from the past to allow greater freedom of thought and action and in CBT.
As an integrative therapist (one whom is trained in more than one approach) I will listen to you sensitively and non-judgementally and we will reflect together upon whichever approach best facilitates your progress.
Sessions will take place on a weekly or twice weekly basis and will be long-term/open-ended.
Every couple faces difficulties at some point in their relationship.
Whether these difficulties are triggered by events such as starting to live together, getting married, the birth of a child, infertility, illness/bereavement of extended family or friend or stress and anxiety relating to work and financial issues, many couples find it difficult to talk to each other about how they really feel. In time this can lead to constant arguing which if left unattended can encourage dissatisfaction with the relationship and eventually a parting of the ways.
As a couples therapist I will provide a safe and non-judgemental space for you to gain an understanding of each other's feelings and reactions. Through the provision of tools and practice based upon an integrative therapeutic model uniquely tailored to each couple, I will help you to learn to engage in effective problem solving within your relationship and to experience difference in a healthier more productive way.
Couple counselling is often short-term. You may need only a few sessions to help you weather a crisis. If your relationship has deteriorated over some time however you may need to commit for a longer period.
