Psychotherapy and Counselling provides you a confidential, safe and accepting space in which the problems and questions of life can be explored through the medium of the relationship between you (the client) and me (the psychotherapist). Psychotherapy aims at the exploration of your inner world, as well as employing the professional methods and tools from the psychotherapist to be able to change the experience of your life in ways in which you experience as fulfilling.
Psychotherapy can be used to treat issues such as depression, addiction, trauma, anxiety, social anxiety, existential issues such as meaninglessness, bereavement, relationship and sexual issues, alienation and loneliness, issues at or with work, spiritual emergence or emergency, parental or familial issues, issues to do with masculinity/femininity or can be used to explore the inner self without the need of a specific problem. sometimes we may not know specifically what it is that ails us, and that is also something which can be explored and discovered through psychotherapy.
I am personally also very interested in working with those who feel like outsiders, excluded in some way from life. I have many years of work with addiction and mental health, with a degree in psychology and a background in mental health support roles before my training as a therapist.
Psychotherapy and Counselling as I practice it uses a combination of techniques and methods grounded within the transpersonal perspective. This perspective ensures that the â€˜wholeâ€™ person is addressed within the psychotherapy in a holistic way â€“ including concerns around personal meaning, spirituality and our potential as human beings. Although we can and will look at the issues that are causing you problems in your life, transpersonal psychotherapy is not purely about you being â€˜sickâ€™ but also at what you are beyond any form of symptom or problem.
In the process of therapy, we will work through our therapeutic relationship and look at what develops in the space between us, employing techniques such as dream interpretation, creative work, art and visualisation. This will help us to get a better understanding of what is happening within your inner world so that we can work on this material together and help you to improve your experience of life.]
