What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a process in which you can reflect upon what is happening in your life and how you feel about yourself.  It is a confidential space in which we will work together to create a relationship where you feel safe to explore the areas of your life in which you feel troubled, unhappy or unsatisfied. The therapeutic relationship is one unlike any other - not friend, mentor or expert, but someone alongside you as you struggle to uncover what may be getting in the way of living your life in the most satisfying way for you right now.

I can support you to recognise patterns of behaviour which feel stuck, and explore the ways in which these may no longer meet your needs. In recognising these patterns you can become free to make different choices and live your life in a more fulfilling way. Identifying areas where you can make changes - and also where you cannot - allows you to become aware of different possibilities, recognising where adjustments may benefit you and your relationships. 

We can meet for a fixed number of sessions or for a longer, open-ended period of time. We will check in with one another and review this as we progress through sessions.
