Sylvia CowellPsychodynamic therapist
Hello, I work primarily with adults, and can help you if your are suffering from anxiety and depression. I am good at working with those who find it difficult to ask for help or to let others know how they are feeling. If you suffer from panic attacks, troubled by constant worrying or stress, or just feel that your are not coping with your life I use a range of methods and tools to help you. I am also able to help if you are struggling with your relationships, intimacy or sexual behaviour, whether in a couple or not.
I will work with you to agree what you would like to achieve from counselling. I can help you understand and overcome your symptoms of anxiety or we can explore the source of your symptoms.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy - I use this approach to help you understand why you feel as you do, what thoughts are driving your behaviour and help you feel better.
Psychodynamic Counselling - I use this approach to help you understand the source of why you have developed the way you have. This understanding of your past relationships will help you understand what is going on in your present life. Clients find this helpful as it then means they can be free to change things in the future if that is what they want.
