Dr Luke Siorvanes UKCP

I offer a confidential place where you can be free to bring what's important to you. Experienced in psychoanalytic and Jungian approaches, in the NHS and privately, to help you with the question:
Why would you be looking for therapy? When we’d say, for example, it is for anxiety, depression and its opposite, for family expectations, loss, issues with relationships or self esteem, we try to get across how we feel. But in the privacy of our own thoughts, what we do really feel tends to be more difficult to put into words.
I'll work with you to explore what is happening and what you make of it with the different aspects of your self. Finding out more about your 'Why' at a deeper level will help us gain a better understanding of how you feel, and enable to think your way how to change things.
Each approach is tailored to your individual needs. On the one hand, it is about helping with your struggles or distress. On the other, it is about getting to know yourself better
Have you tried to change things with positive thoughts, but found that parts of your life remain perplexing or hard to come to terms with?
I have been working with talking therapy and imagery to get in touch with such elusive, difficult aspects. What would they mean to you? In the sessions, together we'll discover patterns from the past, and new ways for the future.

At an initial consultation, we’ll discuss in person your questions, your circumstances and individual needs.
It is not meant to be a formal assessment. Rather, it would be a time for us to listen to what brings you to psychotherapy or counselling, and have a chance to think about the next step. We'd also discuss the fees, but this first meeting is without charge.
