Is therapy right for you?
Most of what goes on in our minds is in our unconscious. Some hurts and fears can be buried so deep we are not aware of them yet they still affect how we respond to situations. Our self-talk often convinces us we are no good and worthless. We find ways to numb our feelings and stop the hurt; but what we use to squash this hurt, can end up controlling us.
Sessions are usually for one hour a week and take place in a private setting at my home.
An initial session explores your needs and gives time to discuss long or short term therapy.
Sessions are tailored to suit each individual client and are regularly reviewed.
How therapy helps
Therapy offers the opportunity to be heard, perhaps to explore thoughts or feelings which you may not want to discuss with others. It can help find meaning, understand your relationships, and develop ways of coping with life’s difficulties.
A confidential space
Even if parents are paying, this space remains a confidential space. Like all psychotherapists I have a supervisor to discuss my casework to ensure I best meet my client’s needs. For legal or for your safety I may need to inform others, but this will always be with your full knowledge. Even if parents are paying for your time with me remains confidential.
Your therapy sessions become your special time to be heard, understood and seen. As we meet and build our relationship together we can hold a safe and secure place to explore the feelings which taunt you.
There is no judgement or criticism. No agenda of what you should do, or who you should be. It’s about working with you, to find what is right for you so you can find the inner strength to be all you can and want to be.
