About me and my therapy practice
It’s not easy starting therapy. Somehow we seem to be meant to sort things out on our own, not betray weakness. So firstly thanks for taking a first step. Perhaps you are dealing with a recent traumatic event, a loss or some change in circumstance that you need to deal with? Has something unexpected and undesired happened? Things may be making you feel anxious or sad or lonely, you may be uncertain about how to move forward, may have dilemmas that you need to sort out. Maybe you just need to know yourself better and discover some meaning in your life.
What's therapy like? A lot of it is talking, you talking, me listening. It’s good to talk to friends to family but therapy offers a different relationship where the focus is exclusively on you, your concerns, your hopes and fears. Together we can work to explore what is working in your life and what is not. I won’t judge, label or advise you or provide ready-made solutions but work with you to develop a better sense of you are, what you value, what you believe in, maybe discover strengths that you have forgotten you have.
My name is Jeremy. I will be on your side, to welcome all of you, the bits you like and are proud of and maybe the bits that you find it harder to like, perhaps things you have outgrown or would like to change. We can’t change the world but we can, perhaps, work out how to deal with it. No magic pill but if we work together, we can get to a better place.
You may want to work on specific issues for a limited time – perhaps six sessions and then review and decide whether to finish or continue. Possibly for you therapy will be more open-ended, involving a more in-depth exploration of your life and may last months or years. You will know when you feel that you have accomplished what you wanted to accomplish and feel ready to move on without support. Sessions are generally weekly and last 50 minutes
