About me and my therapy practice
Hello and welcome!
My aim is to support you through any difficulty you are experiencing now. I offer a warm, non-judgemental and confidential setting where you can talk about the issues that are distressing you. Together I hope we can gain an understanding of what you want from life, what fulfils you and what holds you back.
Should you try therapy?
It is entirely reasonable to have times in your life when you’re finding it difficult to cope. Yet going to therapy is a brave decision and you've taken a bold first step towards support by just looking in this directory.
My job is to go on the journey and explore the issues with you but I don’t tell you what to do. It’s a journey that isn’t devoid of challenge or humour but it’s a journey of your choosing.
Equally we will go at the pace that you choose and the topic of your choice. Difficult subjects can take time to be voiced. It can also take time to clarify what is important for you to talk about. We may touch upon the past – family, relationships, career – or we may talk about the present and a crisis that overwhelms you. You will voice the issues that you feel are important.
Sometimes the aim of therapy is to achieve a sense of who we are – where do our motivations come from? Why and how do we form relationships? What have we taken from the past and what can we leave behind? Therapy often allows the time and space to think about ourselves in more depth than we ever have before.
Normal people go to therapy. They worry about life, relationships, family, fulfilment, have suffered trauma, have caused trauma, have loved and lost.
Therapy can help people to fulfil their potential, to find their passion, their own meaning of life – and experience shows that we all have the ability to change. Therapy allows you to consider and plan a future of possibilities and I hope to do that with you.
