Chris DonovanPsychodynamic psychotherapist
I am a highly qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, I work with adults, adolescents and children from the age of 5. My approach, though rooted in psychodynamic practice, can be adapted to suit your personal requirements. As a Psychodynamic Counsellor, I work with you to bring understanding to your current day anxieties, fears and beliefs. I explore your unconscious internal belief structures and try to help you make links between these and your current-day feelings and any reoccurring patterns in your life. By helping you work through and understand your internal world, the expectation is, you will be better equipped and more able to face future difficulties and challenges, giving you the capacity to lead a fuller and more enriched life.
"A good therapist does not only show you the cracks in your story but shines a light right through them." This quote, from a leading psychoanalyst, illustrates just how important it is to choose the right person to build your therapeutic relationship with. To know your issues is one thing... to know where they emanate from is the very essence of personal healing!
