Psychotherapy and counselling are talking therapies.
Often people feel their worries are too silly to talk about, or that others people’s problems are much bigger than theirs. This just isn’t true. You’d be amazed how many times people come to me with a problem that has overwhelmed them for years, really struggling with some things. Sometimes people feel they can’t change anything by just talking about their problem. But everyone knows the term, ‘a trouble shared is a trouble halved’. I won’t offer advice. I won’t tell you what to do. I may offer you strategies if you ask for them.
Often we are not aware of where our difficulties come from, yet they influence your life every day. Talking through troubles can help open up your eyes. You will think about things differently.
The main focus of our sessions together is to offer you a space to explore your difficulty. This involves mainly you talking. I may offer you strategies based on mindfulness, cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy, and solution focussed therapy if these might be helpful.
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. The talking therapy I offer encourages you to talk in depth about your difficulties and to think about where they have come from. It isn’t always easy, but you won’t be alone.
