Information about Psychotherapy & Counselling
Individual Psychotherapy / Counselling
I offer face to face, short term and open ended Psychotherapy / Counselling to Adult Individuals 18+. I can also offer on line Counselling via Video applications. An area of particular interest to me is the Psychology of attachment, early trauma and the role of loss and how these may continue to impact upon the present. Psychotherapy / Counselling can often help make sense of early experiences and relationships and how they are connected to the difficulties and insecurities we face today.
It is important for a person to choose a Psychotherapist / Counsellor they feel comfortable with, someone who works in ways that will meet their individual needs.
Young People Counselling
Young People, like adults need to choose the right Psychotherapist / Counsellor. One they are comfortable with, a qualified, competent Counsellor who honours confidentiality and shows them respect. A Counsellor that is skilled and trained to work with Young People in an engaging, motivated and creative way.
Sometimes they communicate their distress through truancy, anger, bullying, disruptive behaviour, self injury, over sexualisation, pornography, drugs, alcohol or through silence. Adults need to understand what these behaviours mean and what the Young Person is communicating and Young People need to feel that they are heard and understood. Through working with young people 12+ as an independent School Counsellor and in Private Practice for 14yrs, I have a wealth of understanding and experience in assessing developmental processes and can support the emotional needs of Young People in a supportive and creative way.
Couples Counselling / Therapy
Couples Counselling / Therapy, provides couples with a safe place for both partners to express themselves. The neutrality of the Therapist can enable the couple to look at their relational needs and uncover the unacknowledged emotions and interactional patterns causing them both distress
Common reasons couples come for Couples Counselling / Therapy
The general difference in Couples Counselling / Therapy is:- The work is usually short term 2 -6 sessions. The Therapist is more proactive and directive. Relational exercises between sessions (where relevant).
Sessions are available: Monday to Wednesday 08.30 - 20.30
