Anxiety, panic attacks, depression, the aftermath of a break-up, feelings of "stuckness," there are many reasons people choose psychotherapy. It's uniquely designed to lessen emotional pain and mental anguish. It offers insight into harmful patterns and repetitions. It provides a space for new ways of thinking. 


Understanding your feelings and behaviours is the first step towards making positive, lasting change, to (re)discovering your authentic self, and to developing true resilience. 


Contact me for a face-to-face consult to discuss how psychotherapy might help you.
