Annie BroadbentPsychosynthesis psychotherapist
I work in a way that is tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual client. My core training is in Psychosynthesis, an integrative and transpersonal model of therapy. My holistic approach will look at what you experience through your mind, body and feelings and always holds space for what is trying to emerge through the presenting problem, as well as offering support for managing life's challenges.
I also work in a relational way, meaning I will bring my own human-ness in to the space and see the therapeutic relationship as an integral aspect of the therapy.
Sessions are not formulaic, and may vary from week to week depending on what you bring and your needs for that day.
I work with a range of issues, but my main areas of experience are with:
- Perinatal mental health
- Grief & bereavement
- Relationship difficulties
The first appointment is an opportunity for both of us to decide whether we wish to work together and, if so, negotiate a contract. I will ask you some questions about yourself, your history, what makes you seek therapy at this time in your life and your hopes from therapy. We will also discuss how I work, fees, confidentiality and the practical arrangements for working together.
