Stephen PhillipsIntegrative therapist
The inner critic is the part of us that wants to point out all of our faults. It expects perfection and won’t accept anything less. It also assumes it knows how others think and feel about us. Listening to this inner critic can often make us feel really bad about ourselves.
Working together I will encourage you to:
- Listen to yourself with compassion and understanding, instead of judging or condemning yourself
- Understand and help to relax your anxieties and fears
- Understand and release self-limiting beliefs
- Understand the wounded/protective parts of you that hold you back in life
I believe that the relationship between the client and the therapist is crucial to the success of therapy. I am a fully qualified, experienced and BACP registered therapist.
I provide a safe, supportive, non-judgemental and confidential setting; a place where we can fully determine what is really going on beneath your defences; defences which may have protected you in the past, but may be impeding you today.
The ultimate goal is to unburden or restore the extreme and wounded parts of the self, and establish a healthy, harmonious internal system.
Issues often worked with
My fee is £50 per 50 minute session. There are a number of low-cost sessions available for people on Job Seeker's Allowance, or on low incomes. I offer an initial FREE 30 minute Zoom or telephone consultation. I can give you an insight into how I work. You can then decide if you would like us to work together, either at my practice in Oakwood, or via Zoom. Please contact me to discuss more ([email protected]) (07983 501330)
Generally, sessions are weekly, on the same day and time, either at my practice in Oakwood, or on Zoom. They can be on a short term or a long term basis.
