About me and my therapy practice
Welcome. Thank you for visiting.
We all have psychological parts of ourselves which emerged as a result of our life experience. In some way, these parts helped us to cope. The founder of the Internal Family Systems model, Dr. Richard Schwartz likens such parts to someone "taking over the bus” and driving it where we didn't intend. If you've ever found yourself 'numbing out' with alcohol, drugs, eating, self-harm, sex etc - it's most likely an old 'Protector' part of you stepping in. Equally, we may have some 'Manager' parts which can become highly controlling, ever more efficient, often anxious, demanding ever higher standards from ourselves and others. We may feel depressed, even suicidal on occasion- and, consequently decide to numb out again!
Frequently, such parts of ourselves tend to be frozen in the past, repeating a message which is no longer helpful. (Think of a fire alarm that was still sounding even though the fire has been extinguished).
Therapy is about being prepared to recognise what your experience has been, how it shaped you, and allows you to addresses those parts which may be causing disruption or difficulty. It provides the opportunity develop a more helpful response to challenging situations.
Call me on 07846 827062 or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'd like to arrange an initial session - either by Zoom or in person.
Please visit my website (www.healthyself.co.uk) to find out a bit more or give me a call on the number given on this page.
I work both online and in-person. I'm based in Surbiton, within a few minutes walk of the railway station.
I'm trained in a number of therapeutic approaches, but common to them all is the foundation of providing a safe, confidential environment where you will be met with care and respect. Be assured, therapy isn't about judgements, but provides an opportunity to reflect on experience and make any changes which might help.
If you'd like to find out a bit more or arrange for a no-obligation initial session - then please call me on 07846 827062 or email me (email@example.com) .
Thanks again for visiting.
