Imane Bouzir MA., Dip. Psych. MBACP
If you are indeed feeling anxious, stressed and depressed or struggling in a difficult relationship therapy can help you to understand painful or confusing feelings. Through gentle exploration and with deep respect, I will support you as you make sense of your experience and find ways of dealing with it.
In our initial meeting you will be invited to describe the issue that is creating anxiety or depression, and together we can decide how best to approach it. Therapy may involve setting specific goals and working towards them, or exploring your past to understand unconscious patterns that are creating unhappiness in your life.
Depending on the issue, I use solution focused therapy or CBT in short term work; psychodynamic, Gestalt and transpersonal psychotherapy for longer term clients. It can also be effective to work with your dreams or the unconscious meaning of pain or tension in your body to understand and heal the root of your issue.
Couples Counselling and Relationship Issues
If your relationship has reached an impasse or life's pressures are affecting how you communicate, by facing one another honestly and learning new ways to relate, you can transform your conflict and rediscover love. I will show you how to cross the bridge between you and your partner, listen to one other's feelings and recreate a loving relationship where you are true to yourself while respecting the needs of the other.
Help with an Eating Disorder
An eating disorder is secret and isolating, releasing angry or self-punishing feelings. It feels so shameful it is usually done in private. When you eat unhealthily, you can never get enough of food you don’t really want. Eating soothes the pain of a difficult experience and silences unbearable feelings. Talking about the shame and exploring early memories helps to alleviate suffering around this common problem.
Losing Someone You Love
The pain of losing someone close to us can feel unbearable. When we are bereaved, we go through a grieving process which begins with disbelief then turns to anger, deep sorrow and finally acceptance of our loss. You may be feeling isolated and not want to burden others. Therapy allows you to express your feelings in a safe place.
