We come to therapy for all sorts of different reasons. Perhaps the most important thing to say is that there is no single, “right” reason. You might come to therapy because things have happened to you, such as a death, a divorce or a loss of something else, like a job. Or perhaps you have specific symptoms or feelings of depression, anxiety, stress, anger, low self-esteem or a lack of confidence. Or you may be experiencing issues in relationships, with people or with other things, e.g. food. Or it may be the case that you can’t pinpoint what’s wrong, things just don’t feel right and life simply isn’t going the way you expected.
Sometimes we can feel isolated. If you’re asking yourself, “why am I feeling this way?” then counselling or psychotherapy could be of real benefit to you. I have 20 years of experience involving teaching, research and practice. I am a Dr of Psychology and my PhD is in the area of stress and relationships, which I also lecture on at Middlesex University.
I am trained in Attachment-based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. This kind of therapy involves talking about, trying to understand our behaviours, thoughts and feelings, especially the ones that we might not be so aware of. Good therapy is always “tailor-made”, and I combine different approaches so that I can work in the most effective way to help you.
