About me and my therapy practice

When your life is difficult, I offer non-judgemental compassion and a space to be heard. I work with all emotional difficulties, and have a special interest in trauma: post traumatic stress, depression, anxiety and bereavement. 

I often see a progression which begins when the person who comes to me is stuck, not knowing how to move forward. We process together to understand how the difficulty arose, leading to clarity. Then we can remove the blocks to growth and gain insight about what is needed to move forward. For me, being part of this process never ceases to be a privilege. 

Talking, processing, reflecting together may be enough. For those who need more or prefer more, I work with charts, models, postcards, and any creative suggestions which may arise from our work together. 

On my website https://ianpittawaytherapy.uk you will find articles and videos about issues in psychotherapy and counselling. They are intended for the general reader and viewer, and I hope give a flavour of my approach to working with the issues you have. 

During the Covid-19 restrictions, sessions are conducted by secure video link.

On taking that difficult first step, please be assured of a warm welcome.
