About

The world we live in has the ability to cause upheaval on many different personal levels due to its complex, busy and ever-changing environments. Coping levels for individuals vary greatly from person to person, no one level is easier than the other. My counselling will provide insight into specific problems, changes in life adjustments and basically fostering wellbeing. My psychotherapy which is generally a longer-term therapy will help in this development of insight as well, however it also has the power to restructure a personality in order for 'the unconscious to come into the conscious'.
Psychoanalysis - bringing the unconscious into the conscious to recover repressed emotions; Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) - aims to reduce symptoms of trauma by changing how memories are stored in your brain; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - talking therapy that can help manage problems by changing the way you think and behave
The most important area of speciality - the ability to offer a warm and friendly atmosphere where trust is built and clients feel valued
