It could be that you have a clear idea about the concerns that bring you to therapy, but it is just as likely that the reasons feel confusing. Either way, following our initial contact by phone or email we would meet for a session to discuss in detail what has prompted you to seek out therapy and how the psychodynamic approach could help. This is an open conversation, an opportunity to talk about the work we would do and to think about the best way forward for you.
As a therapist, it is my role is to provide an empathic, non-judgemental and confidential setting for us to explore the things you want to talk about and to work through them in a challenging but supportive way. The approach I practice is grounded in making sense of the ways in which the events and relationships throughout our lives affect how we think, feel and act. In talking this through in therapy, the aim is always to help you gain new understandings, enable change and to move forwards.
