Ginny Thomas, MA, UKCP, CP-UK
I offer psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy to adults, on a long or short-term basis, from once to several times per week.
People come to speak because they are depressed, anxious or conflicted; they may feel stuck in repeating patterns of thoughts or behaviour that seem to be having negative effects; they may have relationship difficulties or questions about their sexuality; they may be finding it hard to deal with the loss of a person, a position or an identity.
Psychotherapy gives a chance to think and speak about aspects of life that may be difficult to address in other contexts. Working psychoanalytically means that the unconscious will be taken into account, on the premise that we are driven as much by unconscious processes as by conscious ones. The work of the analyst is not to offer answers nor to give advice, but to listen attentively and allow the person to build their own solutions through a greater understanding of what might have brought them to where they are now.
Please feel free to contact me for an initial meeting.
