You may find yourself unhappy with how things are and you want them to be better. Things are difficult, but you're not sure what's behind it or what you can do about it.
When you feel like this you may start to worry that you'll be stuck like this forever. It may be frustrating to consider that life is passing by and you are not making the most of it. You may worry that, unless you do something, your situation will get even worse.
These are some common issues where I find psychotherapy is effective:
- anxiety or distress which seem to have no practical solution
- feelings of low confidence and low self-worth, a sense of not reaching goals
- trouble in relationships with a partner, family or friends, or making it hard to form new relationships
Working with a psychotherapist gives you a chance to explore these difficulties. You may find that you can look more deeply into your concerns, and explore with a sense of stability and safety that allows you to see and understand aspects of your life that had previously seemed frustratingly out of reach.
A basis of mindfulness (simply tuning in to your experience of the present moment) provides stability and openness. A therapist who is able to tune in to your concerns can help you to open to feelings and thoughts so that they unfold more freely in the session.
In this exploration we aim to shift the way you relate to yourself, other people and the world around you. We aim to find
- feeling OK with who you are
- an increased sense of safety and security
- the energy to get on with the things that are important to you
- enjoyment in your day to day life

An initial consultation gives us a chance to talk about your concerns, and you can find out how we can work together to tackle your issues.
