It's a cliche to say it helps to talk, but the fact is that it usually does. That sense of not knowing what to do with your fears, thoughts and feelings lessens if you can talk about them to someone who will listen to you in a contained situation of trust and mutual respect. Once the pressure eases, it is easier to think about things calmly and understand what is happening a little better.
No single formula can suit everyone, so I offer short and longer term therapy, with sessions once or twice weekly. In an introductory session, we can discuss which of these options may be the best approach for you. In short term therapy (8-12 sessions), the focus is usually on a particular issue or area of a person's life, whereas in longer term or twice weekly work, the breadth of subject matter is wider.
