I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist currently taking on new clients for video and phone therapy, and aiming to return to work as a therapist for in-person face to face appointments as soon as safe to do so.
Whatever your challenges over the last year and currently, it can be a great help to talk to someone who is qualified in offering emotional support and helping people make decisions about what needs to change in their lives, and who is not involved in your situation.
In addition to the pressures of the coronavirus, whatever difficulties you may have been dealing with before may come under extra pressure too. You may also have found some benefit in how your life has changed and be questioning how best to adapt to this. Relationship and work problems; feeling isolated – or suffocated – by changes in work and social patterns; illness and loss; and the impact of older issues and trauma are very much part of the current landscape. You may also feel your problems are ‘too small’ for anyone to be concerned about, but everyone’s difficulties matter, and we are all entitled to care and understanding, whatever the reason for your distress.
I can work with you to look at your options for relieving the difficulties and distress in your life, and looking at patterns in your life, relationships and coping mechanisms, which may no longer be helpful to you. I make use of a range of psychological and practical approaches to help you find ways of relieving your unhappiness and making beneficial changes. Some people might be looking for support dealing with difficult emotions and experiences, others want to understand more about why things have gone wrong or roots in the past, and others want help deciding what action to take.
Whether you want just a few therapy sessions – which can make an enormous difference for someone who is committed to looking inward – or would like to explore your issues in more depth over a longer period, I can help. You may want to focus on a particular problem or want support in a crisis, or wish to explore your life experience or past more deeply.
I offer a reduced-fee initial session costing £25 to help decide whether I am the right therapist for you. This will give you a chance to tell me a bit about your current difficulties and what you are hoping for out of your therapy.
Please feel free to get in touch on 07900 257150 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or would like to touch base before deciding whether to make an appointment.
