Psychotherapy works at an in-depth level to give you a deeper understanding of yourself.
This increase in self-awareness is a gradual process with subtle but permanent changes over time. Together we will identify recurring themes and patterns from the past which have become unhealthy but feel inescapable.
The process of self-exploration and self-discovery happens within the safe and boundaried relationship of the therapist and patient. The therapy session is your time to talk about anything you wish: this may be day-to-day issues, memories, dreams or any feelings or thoughts which come to mind. I will listen to you with empathy and in confidence and am active in the process and the relationship I build with my patients.
As you get to know yourself more fully your confidence will increase and you will be able to have more fulfilling relationships and experience greater freedom and fulfillment in life.
What Happens Next?
I offer an initial consultation of 50 minutes where we can meet, you can tell me about your current situation and why you are seeking psychotherapy at this time. This gives us the opportunity to see what it will be like to work together.
If we decide to continue to work together we decide whether we will work once or twice weekly and then agree a regular time to meet on the same day each week for 50 minutes. This is important so that we can build a relationship of commitment and trust.
