Bill Rosseter, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, BPC
Who are you? ... And where are you going?
In the rush and bustle of everyday life, we sometimes fail to ask the most fundamental questions of ourselves. Questions like 'who am I?', 'where am I going in life?', and 'am I the person I really want to be?'
Sometimes we reach our own realisation that the nagging background doubt we once had about some of these things, has now become a yawning gap.
At other times, it's traumatic events and life's unseen and unprepared for difficulties - illness, loss, relationship breakdown - that suddenly thrust us into this new and uncomfortable position.
However each of us got there, we know that the strain of 'carrying on regardless' places an increasingly heavy burden upon us. It is then we might want to stand back, take stock, and re-orientate.
Can psychotherapy help you get there?
With the guidance of an experienced practitioner, psychotherapy encourages you to stand back and take a long hard look at yourself and your situation.
It's a kind of psychological stock-taking. You decide that which continues to be useful, and that which is long past its sell by date and needs discarding.
You head in directions that feel right for you!
Successful therapy requires a lot of experience and specific training. Bill Rosseter, a qualified psychoanalytic psychotherapist, has specialised in helping individuals in this way for over twenty five years.
Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy is a mode of treatment which aims to help you understand those unconscious processes which affect your conscious thinking and behaviour. In this way, psychotherapy can gradually bring about a degree of self understanding, particularly how past experiences can affect your current behaviour. These insights can enable you to adopt more appropriate ways of being, and of coping with difficulties. They allow you to become more the person you want to be, rather than the person you are by habit and default.
