Sophie Corke Psychodynamic psychotherapist , EC1R
As a psychodynamic therapist I aim to help you move forward with your life, through a better understanding of your underlying thoughts and feelings. You may have suffered a recent trauma or bereavement or you may have been struggling for years with issues that will not go away. In the non-judgemental space of the consulting room, we can start to make sense of your experience to date. As a part of this process we will look at your past relationships and experiences and make links between them and the present. The insight gained through this experience can help you to reshape thoughts and actions in a more positive and accepting way.
Many research studies on the effectiveness of talking therapies agree that it is the relationship with the therapist which is the key factor in bringing about change. I aim to build a trusting relationship with you, in which you can feel safe to bring feelings and thoughts which you may feel are unreasonable or unacceptable in some way.
