I offer a safe space to work with your immediate issues and concerns that are troubling you as well as looking at the deeper reasons behind them. Psychotherapy enables you to explore your relationships in a supportive environment giving time and attention to your concerns. Taking time out and having a place to explore your thoughts and feelings through being deeply listened to and accepted within an environment of mutual respect and trust enables the healing process to begin.
If you have difficulty in understanding your reactions and responses the key may be to find out how you think and feel so you can recognise patterns and habits and become in tune with your emotional health and inner world.
Our most intimate relationship is with ourselves. Self-compassion is showing up to that relationship with truthfulness and love.
Psychotherapy enables you to:
- Become aware of habitual patterns of thinking and acting which results in unsatisfying relationships as well as helping you to understand your history and the impact this has had, and may still be having on you. As awareness grows you can get to know yourself in a deeper way.
- Become acquainted with all parts of yourself, including emotions that may seem messy and unclear. When feelings are disowned and pushed away they can still have an effect. By recognising and integrating disowned parts of the self into conscious awareness you can develop an easier more connected relationship with yourself.
Psychotherapy is a collaborative relationship aimed at helping you understand how you exist in your world. This awareness can help in bringing about change.
Psychotherapy offers greater self awareness, self expression, self acceptance and an enhanced relational life so that you may meet the ups and downs of life in a more resourced fulfilling way that supports well-being.
