The people I see often feel traumatised by past events, lost in a dark and unhappy state, or overwhelmed with anxiety about dangers ahead. In an attempt to cope with difficulties, it is common to develop behaviours or strategies that appear to work in the short-term, but turn out to be unhelpful, harmful or counter-productive in the long-term. As problems build, so can feelings of panic, guilt, shame or despair. Unresolved problems tend to place a great deal of strain on our lives, and can negatively affect our relationships, work, and health.
Whatever your experience, I work flexibility to meet your needs and find the best way to help you to improve your life and circumstances. This involves using the psychological principles that underpin many therapeutic models, particularly those that inform Cognitive Behavioural and Psychodynamic ways of working. I particularly favour Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Therapy (What is ISTDP?), which aims to work with the root of the problem quickly and is particularly effective in working with physical health problems caused or exacerbated by psychological and emotional difficulties.
Whether you have a good understanding of the nature of your difficulties or feel lost and unsure, I will work with you to identify and understand your difficulties in the unique context of your life. In doing so, we will decipher the changes and goals you wish to achieve.
