Psychotherapy with Adults
Who is it for?
People may seek therapeutic help for a number of reasons, for example:
- Loss of confidence
- Anxiety and stress
- Bereavement and loss
- Depression or low mood
- Relationship difficulties
- Past abuse
For some, this may have had an effect on their mental wellbeing, but it is possible that you may be seeking help just because your life doesn't feel like it is working or you are lacking direction.
You don't need to be suffering from serious mental health issues in order to seek a supportive space. Therapy can be short term, to work on a specific issue, or long term to process and work through historic experiences of abuse.
My role gives those needing it someone to talk to, helping to disentangle self destructive past patterns. With my work I aim to raise awareness in people of unhelpful patterns in their life, and help them to make different choices. I also help to process abusive experiences.
My approach is to offer a facilitation role. I will walk alongside you, but will not analyse or tell you what to do. I see my role as more of a sounding or reflective board. I believe that you are an expert on yourself, and I will encourage you to tell me what you think rather than trying to interpret your words.
At an initial no-obligation appointment, you will have an opportunity to ask any questions about how therapy works before deciding whether this is the right approach for you. If I think that I cannot meet your needs, I will suggest alternative approaches that might be more helpful.
