I believe in psychotherapy because it helped me to change my life. I can offer you understanding and non-judgmental support while you work through the challenges you are facing. I can offer you a safe, confidential space to raise issues and feelings that are difficult to share with others who are close to you.
Therapy does not need to take a long time and it does not mean you have to start by talking about your childhood. We can work on what is on your mind now and focus on what you feel is most important.
