This takes a strength and confidence that can be accessed and developed - new choices can be made. These choices restore vitality and contact with the inherent goodness which we can experience ever more strongly and which can become more consistently available to you.

People seek therapy for different reasons. Some are hoping for relief from a specific problem such as depression, anxiety or relationship difficulties. Others may have a general sense of not feeling as alive as they imagine they could. They would like help understanding this feeling and are seeking a richer, deeper, more fulfilling life. In psychotherapy we engage in a process of self discovery in which people learn about themselves and about the ways they have been blocked from feeling fully in touch with themselves and others in their lives.
