'There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you'
There are many different reasons for entering into Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Perhaps during times of stress or dilemma, following an important life event, or to understand and challenge a recurring pattern of behaviour or experience.
Counselling provides a safe, non judgemental and confidential space to talk about your issues, and is often appropriate for shorter term work.
Psychotherapy works on a deeper level, looking at aspects of self, identity and history, and is usually longer term.
My main approach is Transactional Analysis (TA), a type of psychotherapy developed in the US in the 1950's. TA is now used widely around the world, and combines solution-focused work with a deeper look at the client's history, experience, and patterns of relating to others. TA has an ethos of recognising the equality between therapist and client, and the inherent 'okay-ness' within everyone.
I am trained in both Counselling and Psychotherapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). We can discuss which approach may be relevant for you at our initial meeting.
