WHAT IS PSYCHOTHERAPY?

Psychotherapy or "talk" therapy is a method of treatment addressing issues that get in the way of living well.

 

People often seek therapy when they are struggling with the following:

 

  • feeling stressed or anxious

  • coming to terms with losses such as bereavement, divorce, or employment

  • lacking confidence, self-esteem or having feelings of underachievement

  • an inability to make or sustain good relationships

  • repeatedly becoming involved in unsatisfactory or destructive relationships

  • feeling depressed, sad, or empty

  • lacking a sense of purpose or feeling "stuck"

  • having unresolved issues from the past

  • difficulties relating to sexuality

  • problems at work

  • family conflicts

 

I provide a safe, calm and confidential setting in which we can identify, explore and work through the things that are troubling you. Through the relationship between us, I aim to help you leave behind old patterns that caused distress and suffering and develop new, healthier ways of being.

 

For recent onset problems with a clear focus, like bereavement or a problem at work, people come for once-weekly counselling for a short period.

 

For issues that are more complex people tend to opt for longer-term psychotherapy. This can be weekly, but two or three times a week helps us to work on issues more intensively. We can discuss the best approach for you and your schedule in our first face-to-face meeting.
