By coming to personal therapy, you may be seeking to find relief and gain insight into the obstacles which might be blocking your path to health and happiness. Whatever your circumstances, therapy can be the first step in an empowering journey of self-awareness and transformational change. By shedding light on blind spots and working with you to overcome inner resistance, I can help you move forward equipped with the strategies you need to thrive.
Therapy offers a safe, confidential place where you can talk about your relationships and emotions or difficult events in your life which you wish to make sense of. Or you might have unhelpful or negative thoughts and behaviours that you want to change. You don't have to be in crisis to have therapy.
I will not give you advice or solve your problems for you. I will listen to your story, helping you to understand yourself better and make positive changes in your life.
What we talk about will vary depending on the problem you want help with. It could include:
- your relationships
- your emotions
- your thoughts
- your behaviour
- situations or events you find difficult
Every therapist works in a different way. At the introductory session, I will start by asking you about the difficulties you are experiencing. I offer a safe and confidential space where you will feel respected, understood and valued.
Once we have both decided whether we are a ‘good fit’, we can agree a mutual way of working together and we can plan how therapy will work for you. How many sessions you have, will depend on your individual circumstances.
We will usually have a number of scheduled, regular sessions lasting for around 50 minutes. This time will be yours every week. We can then begin to engage in a supportive, collaborative process. I suggest an initial commitment of 12 sessions, after which we can review our work and decide how to proceed. However, you can stay in therapy for as long as you wish.
