Psychotherapy aims to help people to gain insight into their problems or distress, create a greater understanding of what motivates them and enable them to find more appropriate ways of coping, or of bringing about their desired changes in their thinking and behaviour. Psychotherapy involves exploring feelings, beliefs, thoughts and relevant events, in a structured way. Depending on the nature of your problem, therapy can be short or longer term. Sessions can be provided for adults, adolescents and children on a one-to-one basis, or for couples.

What happens during psychotherapy?

Every session is different because every client is different, as are their problems. I will encourage you to talk and explore, in a structured way, your feelings, concerns and experiences. You will be assessed to ascertain which techniques and clinical approaches will help you to find the capacity for improvement within yourself. Psychotherapy has helped many people deal with mental or emotional distress and other issues, which can be experienced in many ways including:

  • Anxiety or an inability to cope or concentrate
  • Inability to deal with stress or recover from stressful situations
  • Lack of confidence or excessive shyness
  • Feelings of depression, sadness, grief or emptiness
  • Extreme mood swings
  • Difficulty making or sustaining relationships, or repeatedly becoming involved in unsatisfying or destructive relationships
  • Sexual problems
  • Difficulties in coming to terms with losses such as bereavement, divorce or loss of employment
  • Eating disorders
  • Self-harm
  • Obsessive behaviour
  • Panic attacks and phobia
  • Addiction

Psychotherapy constitutes a number of different disciplines. After assessment will work together using therapies which will have a specific impact on your presenting issue. These therapies are explained in the Therapy section of the website.
