Claire Thompson-HartPsychodynamic psychotherapist
When life becomes difficult or you are faced with challenges, I can provide a safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment for you to discuss issues such as anxiety, stress, depression, anger, loss, trauma, low self-esteem, identity, and work and relationship difficulties.
Following an initial consultation, I tailor the therapy to meet your needs, and I offer both open-ended and short-term psychotherapy.
Providing a space for you to share and reflect on emotional, mental, and behavioural issues that may be troubling or difficult to work through, I can help you understand your unconscious thoughts, behaviours and emotions.
Through gaining a deeper understanding of yourself and your experiences, you can begin to feel more in control of your inner world and life, develop new perspectives, and acquire more helpful ways of coping or relating to others.
I have experience working with a wide range of psychological and emotional issues. Some of the areas include:
- Anxiety and Depression: Helping individuals identify and overcome symptoms of anxiety and depression, providing insight and support for a healthier mental state.
- Trauma and Loss: Assisting individuals in processing and healing from complex and single-event trauma, as well as navigating the grieving process.
- Relationship Difficulties: Addressing challenges in personal and professional relationships, fostering better communication and understanding.
- Self-Esteem and Identity: Supporting individuals in building self-confidence, exploring personal identity, and developing a positive self-image.
- Work-related Issues: Assisting individuals in managing work-related stress, addressing career challenges, and finding a healthy work-life balance.
- Life Stages: Helping individuals navigate and understand life stages that impact their mental health and relationships.
- If you would like to discuss therapy with me, please give me a call or email, and we can organise a time to have a free initial conversation to discuss what would suit your needs.
