How Therapy Can Help
Working with me can provide a stable base to talk things through and explore what’s going on inside. This can help you to understand yourself more, and develop the ability to reflect and make more empowered choices.
Therapy is an investment into your own well-being and an act of self-care. This can help you to feel more connected to those around you, and live a more meaningful, conscious life.
I believe that we each have a unique individuality and essence which is who we truly are. To be able to express ourselves fully, we need support, empathy, nurturing and encouragement. Many of us grew up in environments that did not provide this. In order to adapt, we develop defenses, which are coping strategies to help us survive in environments that are difficult to thrive in.
We all have defenses in varying degrees. Defenses help to protect us, but can also leave us with a sense of restriction and powerlessness. They can lead us to make choices that are not best for our well-being. There are complex patterns underlying our thoughts, feelings and motivations which impact upon how we experience life.
I offer a safe place to explore what's going on. I can support you to build the resources to navigate challenges and find a sense of resilience.
