Examining thoughts, feelings, and emotions is a path that leads to adjusting our behaviours and lives in less unfortunate directions. Therapy helps because it is an environment where we try and unfold thoughts, feelings and underlying concerns that seem to be burdening your decisions and life. At times it can be challenging to re-examine difficult situations or simply talk about current issues; however, it is this first step of talking through these moments that can improve one’s life. I am a psychotherapist with experience in the UK and abroad.

We may all, at times, feel confused when encountering challenging situations, and experience painful emotions. In some instances, we are not able to understand and resolve them ourselves, or through the resources available to us. Talking through what is happening for you and having your feelings validated in a safe, non-judgemental atmosphere with a trained professional can be immensely helpful.

In a non-judgemental, warm and supportive environment, I will help you to understand where the problems you are experiencing have arisen. We will work out why they have become so problematic and hard to deal with. I will help you to find strategies to cope better and tools to help you to move on in your life and feel stronger and more content. As with any problem, the sooner it is acknowledged, the sooner you can begin your recovery. This is true of emotional and physical issues, as well as practical.

Children and teenagers can benefit from counselling therapies, and studies show that these are hugely effective, both in the short and long term. For older kids and teens, talking therapy can provide a unique space to safely explore what's going on to make them sad, angry, or anxious. For younger children, using play and art, as well as talking therapy, can help them begin to piece together things that might be difficult for them. Life doesn't always go according to plan, and sometimes things happen that no one is prepared for - an accident, a traumatic experience, a situation no one could have foreseen happening.

Modern life can be hectic. Balancing the daily demands of work, family and social commitments with our desire for happiness, health and enjoyment can feel exhausting. Not to mention the baggage of unprocessed emotions, experiences and limiting self-belief most of us drag around with us. We all need to slow down sometimes and reconnect with ourselves, our true purpose and the things that give our lives meaning. This is not a quick fix to a problem, it is a deeply therapeutic transformation, which is likely to affect every area of your life.

But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
