Psychotherapy will provide you with professional support when you feel low, anxious or stressed, and it can guide you along a path of positive change. Therapy can help you deal with difficult events and overcome challenging times in your life therapy can work with any issue that is causing you distress. Perhaps you simply want a safe place to talk about what is troubling you – intimate relationships, family troubles, feeling lonely and isolated or a sense of life lacking in meaning and pleasure. Therapy might be a useful support while you are going through life changes – such as a divorce, or re-locating to a new city or country.
Maybe you have struggled with low self-esteem and self-worth for years and this is holding you back from getting the promotion you deserve at work, or from starting a fulfilling intimate relationship. Similarly you might be facing a daily battle with high levels of anxiety that stop you from taking risks and enjoying life to the full.
Perhaps you feel depressed and you’re finding life very difficult to handle at the moment and all you want to do is hide away. Or you are the survivor of abuse and violence – childhood sexual abuse, rape, intimate violence in your relationship with your partner.
Maybe you would like help dealing with addiction – to food, drugs, love, sex or pornography and would like to understand what part these substances are playing in your life, what needs they fulfil and how to find a healthier way to meet those needs.
