Psychotherapy

What is psychotherapy?

Often, difficulties we are experiencing in the present, have their origins in our past. We can find ourselves repeating patterns in our relationships and/or work life that are not helping us, or may be keeping us stuck.  In my clinical work I utilise psychoanalytic theory to understand how early experiences are affecting you in the here and now.  I am particularly interested in modern psychoanalytic ways of thinking about our relationships that includes attachment theory.

Engaging in psychotherapy can enable a greater understanding of yourself and others, as well as helping you become more aware of other choices open to you.

How can psychotherapy help?

By bringing into awareness patterns of relating you acquired through early experiences, psychotherapy can have a positive affect on your relationship with others, to your work and to yourself. Long-term psychotherapy can have a profound affect.

Psychotherapy can be helpful for the following difficulties:

  • depression
  • anxiety, stress
  • loss, bereavement
  • low self-esteem
  • difficulties in making and sustaining satisfactory relationships
  • issues around identity
  • difficulties arising from emotional, physical or sexual abuse
  • feeling stuck in a pattern.

 

Some people enter psychotherapy simply to learn more about themselves.  Psychotherapy increases self-awareness and many people find therapy gives them increased confidence, improves their personal and professional relationships, increases their ability to manage stress and enables them to have a fuller and more satisfying emotional life.

Psychotherapy, through gaining a deeper self-awareness can:

  • improve our capacity to relate to others and ourselves
  • help us feel more at ease with and more accepting of who we are
  • enable us to better tolerate our emotional world and the life’s ups and downs
  • help us to become freer to make choices over our present and future.
