Life has its challenges at times, and there can be a great need to talk about some issues. We may feel uncomfortable talking to family and friends about things like grief we still experience following the death of a significant person many years ago, or abuse we’ve suffered in our childhoods. We may have grown up in a volatile and stressful family environment with unsupportive or even punitive parents, and the prospect of expecting or having a baby ourselves is making us feel anxious or depressed. We may have been struggling with weight issues or sleep problems for too many years, or are haunted by disturbing dreams.
There are many different ways in, which I engage with people in therapy depending on the needs of the individual and the moment. However, some central themes for me are ‘care of the soul’ and ‘Know thyself’ - being understood deeply in an environment of empathy, curiosity, compassion, and collaboration.
I understand that the first step of reaching out may be daunting, and will try to make you feel at ease as much as possible. Rest assured that increasingly there is a recognition that therapy is a process that supports us in being our best selves rather than something that only people with ‘serious problems’ have to engage in.
