The terms counselling and psychotherapy are often used interchangeably as they both refer to talking therapy. I work short-term to address specific issues, or long-term for deeper exploration of your experiences.
I have worked with clients who have been looking to make significant changes in their lives or have simply wanted to talk something through. There may be a specific event or experience that brings you to therapy or it may be a general underlying feeling of unease or distress. People attend therapy for a whole range of reasons. You may be feeling depressed, anxious or stressed; a friend, relative or pet may have died; you may feel traumatised, scared, or isolated, or you may be having relationship or family problems. Or, you may not relate to any of these issues, you may not even be sure what help you are looking for. Therapy can also help to untangle your thoughts and feelings, to identify what’s troubling you and figure out steps to take to begin to resolve it.
