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. They don’t feel they deserve the time of a therapist. 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 in short term work if this is helpful.
Often we are not aware of where our difficulties come from, but they influence your life every day. Talking through troubles can help open up your eyes. You’ll think about things differently.
The main focus of our sessions together is to offer you a space to explore what’s troubling you. This involves mainly you talking. The thought of this can be scary, but my clients tell me this is one of the most important times of their week. 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 what’s troubling you and to think about where this comes from.
