Psychotherapy is an opportunity to talk in confidence with another person who has been trained to listen closely. The therapist encourages a reflective dialogue in the context of a supportive professional relationship that can enable an exploration of present and past experience. Greater awareness and understanding of our experience can strengthen us and may introduce us to other, new possibilities.
Sessions take place on a regular, weekly basis. Psychotherapy may be open-ended and take place over a period of time but contracts can be made for shorter periods or of fixed length. Issues brought include depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, self-harm, bereavement and loss, addictions and dependency, difficulties in relationships, issues of social and cultural identity, and the many challenges we encounter in the search for a meaningful existence in the 21st century.
