Neil Turner MA - Online
Thanks for visiting my profile. Life has changed so much over the past few weeks and as we all go through this period of adjustment you may have mixed emotions about it. Much of my work involves helping my clients find their feet during times of change and so this period is offering an opportunity to find your ground and inner strength in the face of uncertainty.
In my practice I offer a space in which to explore your challenges and I have many years experience working with anxiety, fear, self-doubt and stress. The aim of my work is to bring clarity and awareness into whatever difficulties you might be facing and as a result help you feel more at ease and confident within your self, your life and relationships.
My practice is now fully online.
Below is a bit about me and my approach. If this sounds of interest drop me a line to arrange an initial appointment. During this session we'll get to know each other a bit and see if working with me feels like the right direction for you.
I see all difficulties and challenges as part of being human and I'm interested in what it means to be fully human. This approach helps calm anxiety and shame and enables a way towards experiencing the life you would really like for yourself beyond fear and doubt.
My style of therapy is Integrative, which means I draw on various approaches and techniques depending on your needs. In addition I offer various tools to take away, which can be used at home to quickly shift negative and stressful thoughts. One of these is a unique method through which to transform self-doubt.
I have a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy and before training as a therapist I worked as a Designer.
What to expect during the session
During your first session we explore the issues, check that psychotherapy is the right action for you and see how you feel about working with me. After that I offer 4 initial sessions as an assessment period. This allows time to really see whether working together can help you moving forward. At this point we review and if we agree that this is of benefit we would then continue our work together on a weekly basis.
For individuals -
Our work together is confidential and is a space for you to talk about the things that are troubling you. These may be related to current situations or difficulties that you've been struggling with for some time. My job is to reflect back what I hear and help you get a sense of the patterns that may be keeping you stuck or causing distress. Together we then explore how best to move forward. It can be a huge relief to give voice to difficulties feel heard and understood. I also offer exercises and work to do in between sessions.
For couples -
Often couples who come to work with me describe having lost connection with each other. This loss of connection is very painful and is often at the heart of most relationship conflict. I see much of my work as helping couples find their way back into connection.
We aren't taught how to be in a relationship or how best to express our needs and fully understand the needs of our partner. What I offer is an opportunity to learn new ways to communicate and as a result develop a deeper understanding of yourself, your partner and the relationship itself.
