Why Therapy?

I see therapy as the process that encourages people to understand themselves more deeply. The way in which our minds work is shaped largely by our early experiences, although this operates generally outside our conscious awareness.

In Counselling and Psychotherapy sessions you will have the space to express and reflect upon your feelings and concerns. This involves exploring early experience and developing a better understanding of unconscious motivations and repetitive patterns of relating.  Being heard properly for the first time can often be an important first step in the process.

It may take some time but can lead to greater acceptance and self-confidence, which will enable you to lead a more productive and fulfilling life. You might be feeling overwhelmed and not wanting to handle difficulties without support; or be feeling confused, conflicted and just need help to understand things more clearly.
