I'm Haydn and as a Psychotherapist I offer "space" where you can explore emotional difficulties in a confidential, non-judgemental environment.
Each person's experience is different, but generally, you might seek therapy when there is something in your life you want to change and you need to explore your thoughts, feelings and actions in more depth.
In some instances, I have worked with clients in 3-6 month blocks of psychotherapy; however as the sessions progress we could find that much more needs to be looked at, in which case we might work for a year, two years or even longer.
My role is not necessarily to tell you what to do; instead, I can encourage you to talk through the problem and - looking at it from multiple perspectives - we might uncover root causes and find solutions that are specific to you.
In a safe environment, I offer - freedom to explore what you need, support to find unique understanding of your problems and helpful tools to work through them, with the aim of increased autonomy where necessary.
This is a journey that takes time and consistency for it to be effective, as a result, the clients with whom I work, choose to have regular, weekly sessions. Eventually, you can find that the process allows for increased self-understanding.
The work could also help you to appreciate another person's point of view more fully, enabling greater clarity around how you interpret words or actions of others.
My approach is Integrative - I can adapt my style of working to meet your specific needs. Also, 14 years experience as a Dramatherapist means that I can also offer creative ways of looking at difficulties where necessary.
I have experience working with a range of issues – including sexual identity, gender identity, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, living with HIV, the long term impact of sexual abuse, bereavement and relationship difficulties.
Our first meeting will be an assessment - an opportunity to look at what might bring you to therapy and why now. If we're happy to work with each other, we can then set up a regular day and time in which work.
Each session lasts one hour and the charge is £65 per session, including initial assessments.
