Vicky Strowger - Adv. Dip TA (psych), Registered MBACP
Many years ago I made a decision to become a Psychotherapist after having a good experience of therapy myself. After an intensive five year training programme in Transactional Analysis (TA) with a psychotherapy specialty, I am committed to providing psychotherapy and counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment in Falmouth, where people can discuss their problems and difficulties and decide what they want to change or consider how to cope with the things they can’t.
People seek counselling or psychotherapy for many reasons; sometimes life can be confusing and frustrating, it can feel pointless or scary. They may be experiencing difficult times in their lives or feelings of anxiety, depression or stuck in situations that feel beyond their control. They may be troubled by past experiences or feelings of being unable to cope. Some people enter into therapy because they simply feel unhappy in themselves or puzzled by life.
As an experienced practitioner I believe that we all have the capacity to enjoy good mental health and well-being. I am confident and experienced in working with a broad spectrum of presenting issues and feel privileged to have worked with many clients on a short term and long term basis depending on their individual needs.
However big or small your problems are, exploring them with a trained therapist can assist you in developing options for change and moving forward in a way that changes or enhances your life. I am here to help you feel better in how you live your life.
