Hi - are you feeling stuck? Repeating the same patterns of behaviour again and again in your life or relationship and going round in circles? Do you feel a general lack of love/respect with your partner or someone close to you? Perhaps Covid has made things worse and the trust has gone or you're feeling alone, anxious, misunderstood, angry, sad, numb, or just not sure what you feel anymore . . .
These are stressful times so I am happy to offer a free 15 minute Zoom (video-cam) or telephone consultation with no obligation ... just a chance to see how it feels to talk.
People seek counselling or self-help for many reasons but often the focus is solely on the person, not the impact of behaviour on those around them. I provide a safe, therapeutic, confidential space working collaboratively with individuals and couples helping make sense of what might be going on personally and also the overall effect.
I am a CPCAB qualified practitioner and a registered member of the BACP. I also work at Relate specialising in relationship therapy and in partnership with Tavistock using Mentalization Behavioural Therapy (MBT) helping together and single parents in conflict.
I am also offering Single Session Counselling (one-at-a-time work). If you don't feel the need for ongoing therapy but have a specific issue or dilemma that you would like to tackle as quickly as possible in order to move on with your life, then we can talk about this in a focused way during a single appointment. I believe it's important for people to have autonomy when seeking help and sometimes just one conversation can make a real difference.
Using systemic and psychodynamic training with a range of modalities, as you can see this is not a one size fits all viewpoint - rather an organic approach and validation of perspectives - along with a uniqueness and non-judgmental attitude to help you and your situation.
Good self-esteem, healthy boundaries and positive relationships are all key to the foundation of our general mental health and overall sense of wellbeing. If you're overwhelmed, feeling vulnerable and struggling with any of the above or would just like some tools for better communication in your personal or professional life, then please don't hesitate to get in touch.
