Counselling and psychotherapy allows the opportunity for you to work in confidence to overcome problems you may be experiencing in your life. As a psychosynthesis therapist, my approach is practical, seeking to support you in deepening your understanding of yourself and the beliefs and attitudes that may be underlying your choices about your life. The basis of the work is dialogue between us. Where appropriate, we can work more experientially, for example with drawing or with visualisation. We will work on both inner and external experiences. The body has important messages for us, where we hold emotions, tensions and memories. How these are experienced by you will inform our work. Counselling and psychotherapy involves looking at your unique life experience, your relationships with family, work and community. CBT+ can provide a strong framework for short term work.
