At times the challenges of life can make us feel overwhelmed and isolated and it may feel difficult to talk about our feelings and fears to those closest to us. Feelings of shame, guilt or not knowing where to start can add to the feeling of being alone.
I offer a space in which to explore these feelings in a safe and confidential setting without judgement where together we can begin to understand what brought you to therapy in the first place. Psychodynamic counselling looks not only at problems in the present but, crucially, at the roots of these problems in the past.
Careful understanding of the relationship between the client and the counsellor helps to identify how emotional patterns from early in a person's life may repeat themselves in later life in a damaging way. Coming to understand this enables change to take place.
