About this Service
Am I the right therapist to help you?
We seek therapy when we are in pain – you know something isn’t working for you but you may not be able to pinpoint what. You may be facing acute known difficulties such as bereavement, the loss of a job or relationship problems. You may be experiencing familiar distressing situations and begin to wonder why you encounter the same problem over and over again. Or you may find yourself personally limited by anxiety or depression or the ways you find yourself reacting and relating. Life transitions can also be confusing times as you ask yourself big questions such as: Who am I? What do I want?
As your psychotherapist/counsellor I seek to build a safe relationship with you and give you space and time in which you can talk freely, express your emotions, feel heard, understood and valued. I use my personal qualities, therapy models and skills to help you. Together we work through emerging themes as you talk about what’s on your mind; bringing insight, new perspectives and opportunities for making new choices. The aim is for you to live your life more fully and freely. It is a process where I help you find your own solutions to the issues, known and unknown, which brought you to see me.
