What is therapy?
My clients tend to be very capable, professional and entrepreneurial and when they see me for therapy it is often the first time they have sought professional help. In the past my clients may have successfully managed all that life has thrown at them and when they contact me it is usually because life has changed and become more of a challenge perhaps as a result of a relationship breakdown, work stress, raised anxiety levels, burnout, experiencing a traumatic incident, undergoing a life transition or feeling the impact of early life events and trauma. Often clients feel that life has become a bit meaningless, repetitive, boring and they can feel like they’ve lost their way.
How can I help?
Therapy is so much more than a chat with a lot of nodding. It is an active exploration of how and why issues are troubling you or continue to trouble you, helping you to recognise and stop unhelpful patterns you may be repeating in your work, social or personal life. Therapy can help you to regulate yourself emotionally and increase your knowledge and awareness of how unresolved issues, beliefs or traumatic events may be adversely affecting your current enjoyment and quality of life. Our work together will give you insight and strategies to manage difficulties more effectively and for the longer term.
At the end of the day, therapy helps you leave the past in the past and move forward with a sense of freedom, happiness and increased self-awareness.
