Anne Marie Allen
Psychotherapy can help in allowing you the space to explore issues and begin to make sense of emotional and mental distress. It offers support during times of crisis, but psychotherapy is also useful for those who need help for what is less easy to define or grasp: for people who aren’t quite sure how to voice what is happening but would like to talk it through with someone.
I am an experienced psychotherapist. I work with respect and sensitivity for the individual. It is always useful to meet for an initial consultation to discuss what is happening in your life and think about what you want to get out of your therapy. Work can be short term or can stretch into a much longer ongoing period.
My approach is broadly relational which means that I am interested in a person’s way of relating to others as a way to understanding themselves. The interpersonal dynamic that takes place between myself and a client can be used to inform and deepen the work.
