I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor and I provide professional counselling for individuals, young people, couples and families.
What is Counselling and how can it help?
Life is not always straightforward. Sometimes we can find ourselves feeling low, depressed or anxious or having difficulty with relationships either as an individual, a partner or within a family. Counselling provides a unique and confidential space where you can understand your dilemmas' better and find the resources you need to tackle what is ahead of you.
What does psychodynamic mean?
This refers to a model of therapy, which is interested in how you relate to yourself and others. It considers the impact of previous experiences and the influence of developmental stages in your life. It maintains a framework for curiosity, non-judgmental exploration and collaborative work, recognizing individuals as unique in their personal needs.
It is good to talk
Counselling is a talking therapy. Sometimes it is not easy to say what is on your mind but talking to a therapist or counsellor can help you cope with difficulty and lead to you making positive changes in your life.
My approach is to provide you with a place where you can be heard and understood and challenged to grow in a collaborative and supportive setting.
BACP Definition of counselling:
Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change or enhance their wellbeing.
