'Who looks outside, dreams, who looks inside, awakes.'
CJ Jung, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst
There can be times in life when things get on top of us, when it isn’t clear what we should do in order to move on with our lives. Perhaps you have been struggling with a problem for a while, or something has happened which has triggered difficult feelings.
Working through these issues in confidence, with someone that is professionally trained, can be a positive and helpful experience.
Even so, it can feel difficult to make that first step to seek help.
Maybe you haven’t had any experience of psychotherapy, or perhaps you are still waiting to be seen by someone within the NHS. Alternatively you may have had some brief counselling or therapy in the past and would like the opportunity to explore things a little more.
I am a fully trained psychotherapist, with many years of experience and am accredited with two professional and regulatory associations, the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and the BPC (the British Psychoanalytic Council).
Finding a path through uncertainty
Deciding to see a therapist can seem like a big step and you may have heard all sorts of things both positive and negative about what therapy is or isn’t. But at its heart is the idea of a safe space where you are free to talk through whatever it is that is on your mind. This process can lead to a life of enhanced possibilities and an increased sense of freedom.
Whatever it is you may be struggling with I can assure you of a non-judgemental, confidential approach. I have experience in working with a wide range of issues in particular anxiety, depression, problems with relationships, parenting, loss and bereavement, physical and emotional abuse, sexual issues, low self-esteem, difficulties in the work place.
Get in touch
Looking for a private therapist can be confusing; how do you make a choice about who to see? I have had a long and rigorous training resulting in accreditation with two of the profession’s most well-respected organisations. Setting up an initial meeting where we can talk through what you may be struggling with is a good way to find out how we can work together.
