Clients come with diverse problems and needs. What matters to my clients, matters to me. Generally, I have found problems which manifest in current life relationships (romantic, family, work, with services or with ourself) but which originate in our past experiences are those which can be worked on helpfully using the ways I work. A measure of openness to explore other perspectives and to really think about describing issues is very important as is a commitment to think outside sessions about things that may be the causes of distress.
I have 15 years experience of providing therapy in the NHS with people who are going through very difficult times. I am currently a Consultant Adult Psychotherapist in the NHS. From an in depth exploration of your current difficulties, we will work together to explore their origins and to aim to reduce their distressing impact through a healthy respectful therapeutic relationship.
