Argyll And Bute
Caroline provides individual Psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy to adults and adolescents in Glasgow and Oban.
The aim of the psychodynamic approach; like psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic therapy, is to bring the unconscious mind into consciousness - helping individuals to unravel their current problems in order to find, experience and understand their true, deep-rooted feelings in order to resolve them.
My aim is to work with you in a collaborative way, supporting you in your exploration of sensitive issues, emotions and behaviour patterns to help you make sense of and find a way through what is blocking your potential for genuine happiness and wellbeing.
I offer a confidential space for you to talk and be heard; a genuine human encounter that is warm, empathic and non-judgemental. I believe that the quality of relationship between therapist and client is important in facilitating growth and healing and I hope to put you at ease so that you feel safe and empowered in this process.
Also key to my approach is the understanding that as individuals we all need different things at different times and that an approach where we work organically, at your pace and with tailored support is the best way forward.
If a client is willing to commit themselves wholly to psychodynamic therapy, they should see benefits within the first few months of sessions.
