About Counselling and Psychotherapy

There are as many reasons for seeking counselling or psychotherapy as there are people. Maybe you have been feeling sad or upset for a while, or you have experienced a recent stressful event or painful anniversary. Maybe you have noticed that your past and present experiences appear to be somehow interlinked, or that old and familiar patterns are getting in the way of the changes you want to make in your life.

Whichever are your concerns, I believe everyone, including you, is special and unique. Therefore, it will be important to think about you as a whole and individual person, and not just about the 'symptom' or initial reason that led you to seek counselling or psychotherapy. It may also be meaningful to consider the community in which you live and work, and your wider environment and world view.

It is only through self-discovery and working out our difficulties, be that problems with relationships, feelings of depression, anxiety or stress, that we get to learn about ourselves and truly understand how we want to live our life.

“It is a joy to be hidden, and a disaster not to be found.” D.Winnicott
