We can all reach moments in our lives when we feel a need to take our problems outside of our immediate circle of family & friends and talk with someone who will listen empathically, without judgement or criticism.
Therapy offers a calm, safe, supportive & confidential space in which to talk through what is troubling us.
It may be that you are experiencing relationship difficulties, or have been through a significant loss or trauma, perhaps you are aware of not enjoying life due to feelings of anxiety, panic, stress and/or depression and are not quite sure what these relate to.
I am a fully qualified counsellor & psychotherapist with many years experience working with people from diverse social & cultural backgrounds around a wide range of issues.
As a psychodynamic therapist I believe that our emotional difficulties in the present are often linked to significant relationships and events in our early life experience.
By working with a trained professional to explore and understand the underlying causes of our difficulties we can gain greater self-acceptance, freeing ourselves from negative patterns of & relating and opening up the possibility of lasting positive change and a more fulfillied life.
I usually suggest meeting for an initial consultation lasting around one hour, where you can tell me about yourself, your expectations of therapy and get a sense as to whether you would feel comfortable working with me going forward.
I offer ongoing therapy arrangements based around your therapeutic needs and what you would like to achieve in your therapy.
Time limited arrangements are usually offered over 12 sessions and are helpful if you would like to work with a specific agreed focus.
Open-ended arrangements allow more space and time for issues to unfold and to work on things in greater depth.
Therapy sessions take place weekly at a mutually agreed time and last for 50 minutes.
