About me and my therapy practice
I am a Transpersonal Psychotherapist, and I offer depth psychotherapy. What this means, amongst other things, is that when I work with clients, I try to understand their life history, understand how their sense of self and personality became shaped by their family, friends, school, groups of people and by the society as a large.
I work with clients on an open-ended basis, meaning that the clients get to decide the duration for which they would like to come for therapy. My work as a depth psychotherapist is also informed by the trauma approach, which means that helping a person feel more stable within themselves, and becoming more functional in life is often the first goal of therapy.
Opening up about your life in psychotherapy can be a very anxiety-provoking experience for many, and therefore, I can assure you that the work I do is not about judgement, but it is to get a deeper understanding of what is going on for you. And to offer you a space where you can be heard and seen.
For clients who like to express themselves creatively, I welcome the use of art and poetry in the therapy sessions.
My practice (Grover Olufsen Psychotherapy) is based in Sandhills in Leighton Buzzard, just a short walk from the local Sainsbury's and across the road from the gym.
My first session
Once you contact me and book an appointment, we will arrange a first session at a mutually agreed time. The first session is always an assessment session, which is structured, and that is to help me take notes on specific questions such as your life history, current or past significant relationships, and to understand if you have any diagnoses or are on any medication. All sessions last for 50 minutes.
Therapy begins from the second session onward.
