Susan Reilly, Dip Co, MBACP, GHR, REWIND Therapy
Anxiety? Depression? Relationship's? Life changes? Stress? to name but a few.
Life changes trigger many difficult issues. Examples include, changing job, relationship issues, loss, revelations .... at such times it can help to talk things through in a safe confidential space.
My commitment is to offer that space where I will listen working collaboratively with you to explore your deepest thoughts and feelings. Talking it through with a therapist can help to overcome and change unhelpful and negative behaviours. In the process you can start to reassess and to unravel whatever is troubling you, so enabling you to find alternative ways of dealing with it.
Having been integrative trained, I can draw on a range of therapies including CBT, Psychodynamic and a few others as well as clinical hypnotherapy, which tends to work well with anxiety especially. My experience as a psychotherapist has taught me that one approach does not suit everyone and that it's my job to gauge which one to use.
I have worked a lot with clients presenting with anxiety - in its many forms. This may be pervasive feelings of generalised anxiety or anxiety around particular experiences - social anxiety, for instance. I have found that a combination of exploring the history and possible causes of the anxiety coupled with some CBT and occasional clinical hypnosis, changing those habitual patterns, can be extremely effective in promoting growth and positive change.
If you are feeling anxious, angry, depressed or having difficulties in your relationship? If right now life's events seem overwhelming, having a place to be heard, supported and understood may help. Or perhaps you're unable to put your finger on what is wrong but just feel that something is, then you may find delving into therapy can help to make sense of an issue.
I provide confidential, non-judgmental therapy in a non-discriminatory practice for both individuals and couples. I deliver it in a relational style. For therapy to be a success, I believe a good therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is essential, which requires commitment from both client(s) and therapist.
Having worked with many different individuals and couples, I have experience with issues including abuse, anger, addiction, anxiety depression, bereavement, eating disorders, identity issues, relationship issues, low self-esteem and low self-confidence, to name but a few.
The first step to gaining your autonomy back is to admit you may require a little help, why not try.
