THERAPY IN LONDON

Sometimes life throws at us more than we are able make sense of. This can affect you and your relationships, whether at work or in your personal life. A loss of self-confidence may lead to some critical, negative thinking. You find yourself behaving in a way you don't like or in the same 'old situation', feeling anxious and stressed. You know you don't want to be there and yet somehow it's happened again.


WHY COUNSELLING

When you come to see a therapist the ‘problem’ or the symptom you are describing often feels like it is just happening to you, rather than something you have a say in or control over. Counselling provides a place where you can talk about what is troubling you without the shame or guilty feelings that can be a part of the 'problem'. Getting it out in the open so you can step back and have a look at what's going on, helps you understand how this is affecting your relationships and the situations you are facing, and also the anxiety you may well be feeling at times

A part of this process is becoming more aware of how past relationships can play out in the present. This allows you to develop a mindful attitude towards yourself, rather than just reacting when you’re feeling anxious and stressed.

But an important part of counselling is that as it progresses and you become more aware and confident, you can think about new ways to address the issues you are facing and start to make real changes in your world outside the counselling. Last of all, in this process you will have someone there, travelling with you as you start to find a more appropriate and better way to get on with your life.

  • ISSUES YOU CAN BRING TO COUNSELLING

    Counselling almost always starts with the ‘problem’ or what is sometimes called the symptom – feeling stressed, panic attacks, not sleeping well, feeling paranoid, obsessing about things, procrastinating, often feeling tired and a myriad other ways of describing what is troubling you.
    But underneath the immediate pain or unhappiness is what I sometimes call an emotional or ‘subjective logic’.

    What is it that keeps you in a relationship that isn’t working, why do you keep obsessing about certain things, what’s making you so anxious at times, why are very critical of yourself and often feel you must do more than you need to? It is these subjective logics or tendencies, which can also have an addictive quality in the sense that you keep getting drawn into them, that the therapy explores. And it is by exploring them and understanding what is going on that paves the way for making some real changes in your life.


    MY APPROACH

  • Is Phenomenological and Person-Centred - We take your experience and understanding as the beginning of our exploration and journey together.

  • Existential - Addresses the important issues and decisions that you are facing.

  • Psychodynamic - Helps you see how past relationships can have a real influence on your relationships now.

  • Solution focused - Thinks about strategies using Cognitive Behaviour Therapy that will help you move forward and make positive changes in your life .


  • THE FIRST STEP

    Counselling can help you if you're feeling stuck and want to get on with your life. So why not take that first step. It's good to talk to and discover there is a way forward.
