About me and my therapy practice
There are many reasons why people seek the support of a therapist. Maybe you are experiencing problems at work, family or with your partner, and you do not fully understand why. Perhaps you have been through early trauma or traumatic experiences that you are having difficulties coming to terms with. You may have been abused, bereaved, separated, divorced or are struggling to find fulfilling relationships in your life.You may be experiencing suicidal thoughts, anxiety, stress or depression, which is adversley affecting your daily life.
You may be a parent, carer or guardian, whose child is struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem, relationships, friendships, sexuality or they may be self-harming or are having difficulties at school.
Sharing your experiences, worries and feelings with a counsellor can be liberating, enabling you to make sense of what has happened or is happening to you. Therapy is a healing process but can also be challenging and trigger painful and repressed feelings.
There are many different sorts of approaches offered by therapists which can be confusing for clients. I tailor therapy sessions for the individual client as each person will need something different.
The initial assessment attempts to understand your current difficulties and to identify the type of help you are looking for. After the assessment we discuss whether you are happy to continue or whether you would like to find support elsewhere. it may be that we are not suitable to work together or that you require a different kind of support that I am unable to offer.
