L. Faith Hewitt MA, UKCP
In times of uncertainty and change, experience a sense of 'safety', 'holding' and 'containment' within the boundaries of psychological therapy.
I am an experienced, qualified and registered psychotherapist. I currently work privately and in Primary Mental Health. I offer a professional therapeutic service to adults age 18+. Prospective clients contact me for various reasons and present with diverse needs; for this reason I am able to offer short, medium or long-term therapy.
In private practice my primary objective is to support those clients with challenging, life-enduring concerns, opportunity to explore experiences “in depth”, to make sense of developmental and relational processes which combine to make us who we are. This is an open-ended contract.
You may not know what it is you want to discuss or talk about in therapy so I invite you to contact me for an initial consultation.
We will consider together what has brought you to seek therapy and whether I am the right therapist for you. Should we agree to work together we will allow the work to unfold and pay attention to issues as they present themselves over the course of the therapy.
