Psychotherapy offers a way of learning about ourselves, about what makes it difficult for us to live, providing insights which help us “live forward and understand backwards”. Therapy is a regular protected space each week in which you are invited to share with your therapist what is in your mind. Her task is to ‘be there’ — to stand alongside — to listen carefully to all that you bring and to work together with you to ‘see’ you, and understand together something of what gets in your way. This can help you reduce or remove obstacles to living.
What might we want at the end of psychotherapy?
“…to have a sense of self that you can stay with rather than run away from.”
David Morgan, Psychoanalyst
