Paola Casotti BA (Hons)/Counselling, Psychotherapy MBACP
I offer Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy to help with issues that may include anxiety, anger, depression, relationship and sexuality difficulties, abuse, addictions, work-related stress, amongst others.
The sessions are once a week and last fifty minutes.
The length of the therapy can vary, depending on the time that is needed for the client to work through difficulties and crisis.
When working together, client and therapist will explore present and the past conflicts in order to identify the relation between the present emotions and the early life experiences. By understanding how childhood experiences affect our emotions and behaviour as adults, it is possible to understand the root of the problem.
Through greater awareness we can find a way to manage difficulties and to change patterns and habits that are causing these difficulties.
