Counselling & Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a collaborative exploration of your life.

It involves the building of a therapeutic relationship between the therapist and you thus creating a safe and non-judgmental environment which will facilitate looking at why you are the way you are, connect you with real feelings, help you to mourn past losses.

I work with adults and adolescents with many kinds of issues, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Loss
  • Bereavement
  • Crisis
  • Identity
  • In/Fertility
  • Adoption
  • Break up and Divorce (sessions for both parents and children)
  • Relationship problems (individual and/or joint sessions for couples)
  • Living with a chronic and/or life limiting illness
  • Caring for someone with a chronic and/or life limiting illness
  • Parenting
  • Childhood trauma
  • Psychological and physical abuse
  • Sexual issues
  • Anger management
  • Stress
  • Low self-esteem
  • Difficulties at work/at school

COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY WITH ME

I offer the following different therapeutic time frames. The length and frequency of therapy depends on the presenting issues and will be discussed at our first meeting.

BRIEF THERAPY (1-5 sessions)
SHORT TERM THERAPY (up to 13 sessions)
LONGER TERM THERAPY (13 sessions +)

STARTING THERAPY:

Finding the right therapist is very important. Our first meeting will be the opportunity for us to meet and see how comfortable you are, give you the opportunity to tell me what you are seeking and for us both to discuss the best possible way to achieve this. Nothing is set in stone and we’ll be able to review the work as it unfolds, including duration and frequency of sessions.
I aim to be alongside you in your therapeutic endeavour, providing a safe, supportive and confidential space to explore things in a non-judgemental way.


ENDING THERAPY:

You can end at any time. We will need 4 weeks (two if you have twice weekly sessions) so that we have enough time to review our work and prepare for a good enough ending.
