Dr Kate Guest, Chartered Psychologist (HCPC registered) & Integrative Supervisor
The aim of psychotherapy is to explore the issues you are experiencing and help you make sense of thoughts, feelings and ways of relating to yourself and others. By developing a greater insight, this can help you bring about lasting change. I work with clients on a short or long term basis, who have experienced a range of issues and circumstances that impact their life.
You may be seeking therapy because of -
- Depression and low self-esteem
- Severe anxiety
- Loss and bereavement
- Difficult relationships
- Past traumatic events
- Long term illness
- Anger management
- Alcohol problems
- Wanting to find a new direction in life...
I can provide a safe and supportive environment for you to talk about what is troubling you, make sense of the issues that you are facing and look at more effective ways of dealing with future challenges.
