Psychotherapy and counselling are talking therapies. Often people feel their worries are too silly to talk about, or that others’ problems are much bigger than theirs, but this leads to people suffering in silence.  Wellness means valuing yourself enough to take the time to talk without fear.

Often we are not aware of where our difficulties come from, yet they influence your life right now. I can offer counselling as a short term service (up to 6 weeks) or psychotherapy as a longer term commitment, up to 2 years or longer.  Psychotherapy especially encourages you to talk in depth about your difficulties and to think about how these relate to past experience.  Both of these give you space to explore your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental and supportive way.

Understanding means acceptance, and acceptance can mean change. Counselling or psychotherapy can help you in understanding your difficulties, and promote self-acceptance.
