SOLUTIONS - Counselling & Psychotherapy by Denise Hopkins
Anxiety and depression are common and debilitating to our lives, it can feel like they take over and we cannot see a way out. We lose hope. However there is hope; therapy can help you understand your problems and give you the tools to gain the control back. I work with people who are dealing with depression, trauma / PTSD, relationship problems, anxiety, personality issues and early life trauma / abuse.
Life stressors and relationships can impact our emotional health, as well as be impacted by the way we feel. This is often why people seek therapy, due to the impact it has on our support network and family or friends. Whatever the reason is for your problems at the moment, I can help you better understand these and help you to overcome them.
How I Work
I am qualified in a variety of therapies so I can deliver the most appropriate therapy for you as an individual. I offer Transactional Analysis to help you understand your thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviours. As well as Interpersonal Therapy to explore how relationships are affected in the here and now due to past experiences.
I work one-to-one with clients, as well as with couples. I can offer therapy via Skype or telephone if you are not in the local area.
What To Expect
The initial session will be an opportunity to get to know each other, discuss you issues you're facing and how I can help. We will look at what brought you to therapy, your past experiences, any medications, and any current support systems you may have which could help with process of counselling.
