Rosemary Goodall, qualified, registered Psychotherapist (UKCP)
In Psychotherapy with me you will discover new understandings, possibilities and choices about yourself and your situation, shift the patterns that are getting in the way, create better coping skills and more options, manage stress and anxiety to get to a place of well-being and self esteem, get to the heart of your distress and steadily find ways to resolve this.
I am an experienced and registered (UKCP) Psychotherapist, doing short and long-term counselling. I work as a Psychotherapist in private practice, as a Counsellor in a secondary school and as a Supervisor .
The NHS AND IAPT services have longer and longer waiting lists and more and more people are turning to Counsellors and Psychotherapists in private practice.
How can I help you?
Psychotherapy can help you if you are suffering from emotional and psychological distress and issues such as panic attacks and anxiety, depression, sexual problems, problems at work and relationship issues as well as anger, fear, sadness, guilt and shame, bereavement and low self-esteem.
When you are going through this, a confidential relationship with a counsellor/therapist can make a big difference to your life as I can offer you a safe place to explore.
I help you to understand what is happening for you now in your life. Sometimes this means looking back into the past to understand how this has affected what is happening now. This helps you make sense of it and find a way forward. Sometimes depression and anxiety are lifelong struggles and at others we feel depressed and anxious because of something that has happened to us recently or because we have remembered something that happened to us in the past.
You will find me warm, approachable and knowledgeable as I offer you a safe, confidential environment.
What can you expect?
When you phone or email me I will get back to you and arrange for you to come and see me.
We will have an hour's introductory session which will cost £20. After that you can decide if you want to have further appointments. Further sessions are weekly and cost £40, unless you are on a low income which we would discuss in the introductory session.
