If you are thinking about psychotherapy and are not sure about whether it may be for you this article may be useful for some of the questions that people often ask me either in the initial exploratory session or early in their therapy.
Psychotherapy comes from Greek words and can loosely be translated as care of your inner world. By entering into this work you are starting to take care of yourself and to discover who you have become.
Psychotherapy is a deeper exploration of experience which looks at patterns of thinking, feeling and behaviour that may have early origins and is often longer term than counselling. It can help to loosen habitual patterns which have accumulated over time.
Psychotherapy is a process of discovery and recovery as awareness is brought to inner and outer experience.
Core Process Psychotherapy is based on a depth understanding of human personality process and human potential.
The Core is understood to be an inherently open and luminous state at the heart of our equanimity. The Karuna Institute, 2009
Therapy takes time, commitment and can be arduous as repeated patterns and habits need to be worked with gradually in order to loosen and shift. However increased awareness brings insights and new possibilities.
The initial consultation is free and gives time to talking about your needs and expectations.
Sessions are weekly and last for one hour.
I have some concession spaces available.
