Pyschotherapy & Counselling
I work from an integrative framework and I tailor my approach around your needs and concerns.
Together we will examine and assess the issue(s) that concern you in a holistic way by taking into account your past experiences, current circumstances and future aspirations.
People come to psychotherapy for a wide variety of reasons. Sometimes, just finding a way through difficult life events can seem impossible, and the feelings we experience can seem overwhelming and very confusing. We can find ourselves stuck in patterns of behaviour or in relationships which feel unhealthy. We may be struggling to deal with events in our past or present and looking at past experiences can be vital in therapy, as it is these past experiences that set the pattern for how we behave and feel as an adult.
Therapy is not a quick fix. We may engage with it at different stages in our lives, when particular issues are calling for our attention, or we may need support to deepen self-awareness, and our capacity to relate to ourselves and others in an authentic and intimate way, which is a life long journey.
Become who you are
We work together to reveal the underlying relationship dynamic and experiment with new and more productive ways of relating to each other. Seeking counselling may be a way to strengthen your relationship or to find a way to part amicably Some of the issues I have worked with include the trauma of a break-up, separation, divorce, infidelity or other breaches of trust, losing a child or experiencing a miscarriage, power struggles, communication problems and confusing relationships.
There are many reasons why couples decide to seek help with their relationship. Maybe you can’t talk to each other as a couple about the problems you are having and meeting with a therapist/counsellor can be a way to open up communications again and help you think about your relationship. It can provide an opportunity to explore how these problems have arisen and what interferes with changing them, to begin to examine the dynamics within your relationship and gain a better understanding of the underlying issues.
