Engaging in Psychotherapy aims to increase awareness and capacity to respond to life’s challenges – creatively and compassionately.

Psychotherapy

Being human is complicated… it can be messy and overwhelming at times. We may feel anxious and uncertain with life’s challenges; whether this is nothing specific or a particular crisis. This may lead to a desire for clarity or better understanding of our current situation; for an opportunity to explore how our values determine and inspire our choices and decisions; or to gain support to cope with life’s challenges.

Everyone engages in psychotherapy for different reasons – each of us defines what is important for us to achieve a sense of wellbeing and nothing is excluded for consideration.

Seeing a psychotherapist, within a confidential, non-judgemental space and time, may enable you to explore your experiences – in response to distress, conflict, dissatisfaction, grief, confusion, difficulty or dependencies . . . and, or for those seeking to reflect, refine and revive choices for change and creativity; to renew their passion and inspiration for life or to search for meaning in life.

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” Plato.

Psychotherapy is collaborative exploration by two people – the client and the psychotherapist – about the client.

Psychotherapy is also commonly referred to as counselling. These terms are interchangeable and are both ‘talking treatments’ – whereby the treatment is primarily based on talking to another person. The distinction usually refers to the length and rigour of training.
