It's often hard to make the decision to start therapy, especially if things are difficult at present. What type of therapy do you choose, and which practitioner would you want to work with?
I work integrativly, meaning that I am able to draw on many different elements of psychotherapy in order to tailor the therapy to each individual's needs. I have a sensitive, relational approach, and I work very much in collaboration with each individual. I see individuals for both short-term work (6-12 sessions), and for long-term ongoing work.
Counselling can help you explore the difficulties you are experiencing, and understand the reasons why those difficulties may have occurred. It helps you see things from a new perspective, and so bring about changes in thought patterns and behaviour so that you can move forward with your life. It will also help you to gain positivity, insight, the ability to feel more in control, and a stronger sense of self along the way.
