Dr Carolyne Keenan
You might be feeling particularly Stressed and anxious at the moment or thinking about getting help with things that have been difficult for a long time. Starting the search for a therapist is the first brave step in the road to making some changes and getting some support.
We can arrange an initial session and I will help you to think about your needs and whether this is the right step for you. When we meet I will ask you some questions about what has brought you to this point and speak with you about what your therapy will look like. The first session is also an important opportunity to see how it feels to be with me in the room and whether you feel that I am someone you can work with. I believe that it is important for your therapist to feel like a good fit for you. We will think about how you work best and what we need to do to tailor this process to fit your needs.
If you have been struggling or want to work towards certain goals then being in the therapy room where the focus can be entirely on you will be a unique experience. Working with a therapist creates a relationship very different from those you will have had outside the therapy room. The work we do will allow you to explore issues, experiences and thoughts that you may not have felt able to discuss with the people you already have in your life. I offer a private, confidential space where we can think about these things and the impact they are having on your life. My approach is direct but warm and I focus on empowerment and compassion in the work I do.
