Counselling, Psychotherapy & Couples Counselling

I work with adults over 18 for:

is generally considered shorter term and more about focussing on a specific issue or problem, a difficult decision or some support with skills you need to develop e.g. dealing with anxiety symptoms. Counselling is sometimes considered more goal oriented.

Psychotherapy is generally considered longer term and focussed on unravelling and clarifying issues and underlying patterns that repeatedly crop up despite attempts to change. It will involve deeper exploration about how the inner world is managed and the unconscious processes that are influencing you.

Couples Counselling is for any couples who are struggling in their relationships or considering splitting up. Perhaps:
• you've lost that loving feeling
• can't stop rowing
• you have had a life event that has changed the relationship
• you don't have sex anymore or want different types of sex
• one of you has had an affair
• one wants more closeness, the other more space
• you decide to separate and you want to do it well
LGBTQQI clients positively welcomed with an awareness of specific needs.

Some of the other issues you may wish to pursue therapy for are depression, stress, bereavement, transition, crisis, trauma, feeling stuck, lost meaning or purpose in life, spirituality, sexuality, identity, abuse, low self-esteem, poor confidence, feelings of anxiety or panic, worry, affairs or betrayal, family difficulties, relationship problems, separation and divorce, problems with eating, work problems.

"We shall not cease from exploration; And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started; And know the place for the first time".
