We’re all human and at times life can feel particularly challenging. If you are going through a difficult time and finding it hard to cope, then you are certainly not alone.
The aim of therapy is to provide you with the space and freedom to talk about any problems or difficulties that are concerning you, and to explore your thoughts and feelings in a supportive and confidential setting. As your therapist, I will help you through this process to talk about what you can do to feel better without judgement, and will work alongside you to help empower you to make the changes that you want to make.
The terms ‘Counselling’ and ‘Psychotherapy’ are often used interchangeably, however, in a nutshell, ‘Counselling’ tends to be regarded as more of a short-term therapy, often focusing on the here-and-now and exploring behaviour patterns or a specific difficulty. Whereas, ‘Psychotherapy’ is used to describe a longer-term way of working, which focuses on healing from more long-standing challenges. As part of my bespoke integrative approach, I am experienced in providing both forms of therapy and will adapt this depending on your individual needs.
The nature of talking therapy means that it is not a quick fix, but rather a journey of growth and self-discovery, which takes times and commitment to work effectively. Like all important journeys, it can feel challenging at times, however, the benefits of therapy are often both rewarding and long-lasting.
