We can all experience periods in our lives when our problems seem difficult to manage. This might be due to issues you have been coping with for some time e.g. relationship difficulties or the result of a recent event e.g. redundancy or bereavement. When we feel anxious, stressed or depressed, it can seem as if nothing will change and we are stuck in our present situation. We can find it hard to share how we feel, even with those who are close to us like family and friends. Talking with a therapist can be a different experience, an opportunity to speak with a non-judgmental professional who is trained to help you find new ways of looking at your present situation.
How does therapy work?
Therapy provides a safe and confidential space, where we can begin to unravel some of your difficult thoughts and painful feelings. When you start therapy I will usually ask you about the difficulties you are coping with and what you would like to resolve within our sessions. Often people say they would like to feel better, less depressed and less anxious but sometimes you might want to make changes in your life which we can discuss.Talking in a session can help you feel less alone with your difficulties, help you gradually reach a better understanding and engage with your life in a more fulfilling way.There is no prescribed time to achieve this but it should apparent to us both, after a few meetings, how many sessions you would like to have.
I have been working as a therapist since 2005 in both hospital and private clinic settings. I am qualified in both integrative and psychodynamic psychotherapy but my main way of working is psychodynamic. By following a psychodynamic approach, I am guided by the understanding that past experiences, even those from childhood, can influence the way we think and feel today and cope with our present difficulties. During therapy we will talk about what is happening in your life today and when relevant, look at some of your past experiences .
