About Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy differs from many other therapies in aiming to bring about deep-seated and long-term change.

  • Through discussion of the issues which trouble you, you can gain new awareness, insight and understanding.
  • The provision of a supportive and non-judgemental relationship creates a safe space in which you can modify old habits and test out new ways of relating.

I will work with you to make sense of your experiences, modify longstanding behavioural habits and explore new ways of being. In this way, I hope to help you gain a greater understanding of yourself and develop the confidence to change.

Studies have shown that psychotherapy can contribute significantly to mental and physical health, a sense of well-being and an ability to manage life more effectively.
