At various points in our life we all face times of difficulty or confusion. We may have an idea of
what's causing this but it can also feel mystifying. It may be current circumstances like
relationship difficulties, work stress or bereavement; it could be past issues that lie unresolved.
We can feel lost, stuck, caught in a pattern, at a crossroads or in a crisis. Low self-esteem or
lack of confidence may be interfering with our lives. We may feel taken over by particular
emotions of sadness, jealousy, anger or anxiety. Our relationship to alcohol, drugs, food or sex
may feel out of balance or linked to certain emotions. Maybe your body finds ways to express
things you are not yet able to process or communicate in other ways. Our true nature is to express freely, though we have had to protect and thus contract in our bodies. Our instincts and relating then send mixed messages and impulses. Through looking at our relationship to our own bodies and in a safe environment through the therapeutic relationship, some of this can be untangled.
We know life could be
lived more fully, better managed; relationships could be more satisfying including those with
ourselves. And maybe something else is calling from deep within us that wants to be heard.
Untapped qualities and skills, unexpressed parts that have not yet had what they need to emerge
may be being felt.
Counselling and Psychotherapy provide a place in which any concerns and difficulties you are
having can be discussed in a confidential and safe setting separate from friends and family. It
provides space to attend to what is happening and untangle all the strands involved. Gradually
clarity and awareness may be brought to bear and space for the new, creative and unexpected to
emerge. This can feel both a scary and exciting process.
I will use my experience and skills to accompany you on this journey. I will be very attentive to
what you are saying and also not saying. I will adapt to what you need and can offer different
approaches and techniques depending on what is required at each stage or for each person.
