What is Psychotherapy?

I provide a safe and non-judgemental space in which we can talk about and make sense of your problems. Working through difficulties together will develop your self-understanding and awareness. Through the therapeutic relationship, by illuminating your experiences, beliefs and behaviours from the past, revealing how they might be affecting how you relate and respond to people and situations at present. The insight gained through greater self-awareness can alleviate emotional suffering and bring about helpful changes in the present. This can lead to long-lasting, positive change.
