I believe that we all know deep down how best to live our lives in a more fulfilling way…the challenge is how to do that. My role as a psychotherapist is to support and guide you through this journey. You do not have to go it alone!
Using over twenty years professional experience, I will help you to gain greater clarity as to what may be contributing to your current difficulties. The therapeutic journey can help you understand what really matters to you. This can bring about a greater sense of freedom and the ability to make more fulfilling choices.
Individuals often seek support from a therapist when experiencing anxiety, low moods or a significant loss. The loss may be of confidence, health, career or a significant relationship. You may be coming to terms with becoming a parent, redundancy or retirement. Periods of transition can be very stressful for some and therapy can be beneficial in helping to find a way forward.
Meeting someone for the first time to discuss personal issues may feel a bit daunting; this is understandable. However, it can be such a relief to meet with a therapist who listens to you without judgement in a confidential and professional setting to help you find your way.
