How can psychotherapy help?
Psychotherapy can help by talking to an impartial and professional person, in a warm, safe and confidential environment. Through providing the space, freedom and support to explore difficult experiences, psychotherapy can help uncover underlying emotions and patterns and their impact on the way we feel about ourselves, others and life in general.
What to expect?
Making the first step towards getting help can be daunting, but knowing what to expect can help. Therapy takes place at a specific, mutually agreed time and place each week. The initial sessions involve finding out more about you as a person, what brings you to therapy and what you hope to gain from coming. It also provides the opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have as you try to find the right therapist for you.
People come to therapy for many different reasons and, being an integrative psychotherapist, means different theoretical approaches are incorporated to suit the individual needs of each person. Although talking about your reasons for coming to therapy can be difficult at times, through the support of a safe therapeutic relationship, we can work together to help bring about change.
