Tim Harvard-SweetingPerson-centred/humanistic psychotherapist
I believe everyone should be able to reach their full potential as a unique individual, despite setbacks, misfortune or self-doubt.
I believe therapy should be as individual as you are.
What has happened to you? Are you thriving or just surviving?
I help people to understand and overcome their difficulties. I provide therapy, counselling or coaching that is as individual as you are, using a genuinely person-centred approach to help you find your own solutions.
By working closely with my clients I am able to help them to understand their situation in a way that allows them to find their own solutions. I provide online support to all sorts of people, and I provide face-to-face sessions for those in West Cornwall.
A lot of my work is with depression, anxiety, phobias, OCD, panic, students, trauma, addictions, couples, bereavement, as well as other common mental health problems. I also focus on men’s issues, adult ADHD, and person-centred coaching for personal growth.
The person-centred approach to therapy / coaching / counselling is highly effective yet quite different to other therapies. It puts you at the heart of the process. Person-centred therapy is a relationship, which holistically addresses thoughts, feelings and behaviours. It is not dependent on medical diagnoses, yet can help with all conditions. It is generally as effective as other leading therapies, but uniquely it puts the client at the centre of the process. There is no assessment, interpretation or other judgment. There is no 'you should do this'. The questions, and the answers, come from within. It really is therapy as individual as you are. It's like having your therapist inside your head, alongside you, helping you make sense of things.
