Gavin Williams, Psychodynamic Psychotherapist & Counsellor
During Talking Therapy and Counselling sessions with individuals and couples clients become empowered, by understanding themselves and their 'trigger points' better.
I encourage you to speak about your personal experiences, including the present day and your childhood too, in complete confidence. Talking about and exploring your relationships, and the character you find yourself in at home and at work.
Focused conversation aims to help you understand your involvement in relationships and offers you the opportunity to transform your part in these relationships.
Since 1996 I have been assisting individuals and couples to cope with anxiety, bullying, depression, incest, addictions, anger, obsessive-compulsive, paranoia, worries, emotions, sexuality, paedophilia and internet pornography.
By speaking about your feelings of being abandoned, adopted, anxious, abused, bullied, depressed, divorced, stressed, or concerning low self-esteem or lack of confidence, the individual can become transformed from feeling overwhelmed or feeling panic, to becoming more empowered and assertive.
This approach offers an objective, non-judgemental understanding to your involvement of life experiences, such as questioning your sexuality, falling in love, engaged to be married, divorce, conception, miscarriage.
I am committed to a Code of Ethics: dedicated to social diversity without discrimination, and is sensitive to issues of body image, psychosomatic, gender, ethnicity, colour, culture, lifestyle, beliefs, sexual orientation, homosexuality, bi-sexuality, questioning, lesbianism, heterosexuality, transgender, age and disability.
