Individual one-on-one therapy, often referred to as psychotherapy, involves meeting with a therapist in order to reduce internal suffering, which may be causing problematic behaviour. One-on-one therapy can help to break down barriers that interfere with emotional and mental well-being and get you back on track. As a psychotherapist I'm trained to assist people with various issues such as stress, depression, anxiety, negative behaviour and other debilitating feelings. Psychotherapy is generally long-term and focuses on a broader range of issues. Get in touch if you'd like to discuss how I could help you.
Relationship therapy is not an admission of failure, it's a willingness to resolve problems rather than avoid them. It takes courage to admit we're experiencing difficulties and therapy can help to improve problems before they develop into a crisis. In recent years, with the development of social media, attitudes have changed and we're more open to the idea of talking about our problems and asking for help. People have come to recognise that if we care about our relationships, then it’s worth investing time and effort in making them work. No issue is ever too small to discuss in the safety of a therapy session and we don’t need to wait until things are really bad, before we take steps to improve them. Even when things feel insurmountable, couples are often surprised how much therapy can help to get the relationship back on track.
Having worked as a teacher for 15 years I have lots of experience of dealing with young people; they often experience difficulties that can feel confusing and isolating. The recent health crisis has added challenges and stresses to their lives that may require appropriate help and support. Concerns about, friends, school, college and future prospects in an uncertain world have compounded these issues. Anxiety, low mood and loss of confidence are just some difficulties faced by today's young people. It's essential that we support them through these difficult times and enable them to look to a brighter future. If you know a young person that is suffering then please get in touch.
Group therapy allows people to receive the support and encouragement of the other members of the group. People participating in the group can see that others are going through the same thing, which can help them feel less alone. Group members can serve as role models for other members of the group.
In this female only session, we will explore the issues faced by women and young girls who have experienced and are trying to recover from trauma. This session will start from October 2021 and will run for 8 weeks. Please subscribe below if you are interested in this session.
