What Can I Expect?
Working together psychodynamically means working in the here and now and also looking at the past and processes of the unconscious mind, often making links that offer relief from distressing psychological symptoms through self discovery and development.
This can be a unique opportunity to uncover deep rooted and unhelpful patterns, to make sense of your thoughts and feelings. Gaining insight into the past often leads to the opportunity to disentangle it from the present which ultimately builds a bridge to a brighter future.
Where Would Counselling Take Place & What Might It Involve?
We would meet weekly in my comfortable and calm consulting room where we would look more closely at your presenting problems, often thinking about how past experiences and major life events may be dominating how you relate to others. It's possible that relationships with friends, colleagues and loved ones may be affected by old outdated feelings and behaviours that are no longer helpful to you in your life.
I know that for some the thought of coming to therapy can be daunting and that's why I aim to make the experience as comfortable as possible by creating a confidential space where you can take time away from the usual pressures and difficulties of day to day life.
