Emotional wellbeing has a significant influence on our happiness, quality of life, sense of fulfilment and physical and spiritual health. Our modern, complicated world which increasingly demands more and more from us, frequently moves us further and further away from emotional wellbeing. Individual therapy aims to achieve and maintain emotional wellbeing.

With individual counselling I work with clients to achieve and maintain emotional wellbeing and provide objective counselling to support them through challenging decisions, changes and significant events in their lives. Therapy aims to help clients recover from ailments such as stress, anxiety, depression and burnout, process and deal with loss, bereavement and trauma, re-establish control and establish a path of personal growth and self-actualisation.

Do I need therapy?

People go into therapy to start untying their personal knots and solve their emotional issues. Therapy involves the process of re-examining and dismantling problem aspects of the self and then reshaping and rebuilding from the inside out. The goal of therapy is to make the unconscious conscious and therefore bring behavioural and psychological patterns and repetitions to light. Seeing the patterns for what they really are, we can understand their cause, release them and then reintegrate them back into our unconscious mind in a resolved state. Most people come into therapy in an attempt to rid their personalities of what they perceive to be undesirable aspects. But in the process, rather than get rid of parts of themselves, they learn to work with the troublesome areas and reintegrate them in a new way. Getting to know ourselves is one of the more rewarding and powerful adventures we could have.Sometimes we see the therapeutic process as sort of a psychic diet in which we come in overweight and leave slimmer, with less psychological baggage.
