As a long-time British psychotherapist and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) practitioner, I’ve worked with people experiencing all kinds of life issues from depression and anxiety, to traumatic stress and living with a personality disorders. I believe everyone has the ability to live a satisfying life, but that life isn’t always clear and obvious. That’s where professional help comes in.
Can Therapy Help Me?
There are many ways therapy can help, from uncovering unhelpful beliefs, working on self-esteem and confidence issues, to overcoming past trauma, depression, anxiety and break-ups. The list is no doubt endless. Our sessions can literally be about anything that is holding you back from living a satisfying life. You may think your difficulty is too big/small, or may not fit into what you think is a typical therapy category; and if that is the case, please reach out anyway. And if I can’t help, I will point you in the right direction of somebody who can. You need not tackle any troubling issue alone.
What If I Don’t Like/Don’t Get Therapy?
In my experience, your therapy evolves over time, just as you as a person evolve. In the beginning you might start out a novice, not understanding yourself or what drives you. Therapy may seem confusing and annoying, but in time you may find that things start to make sense.
In some ways, therapy is like learning a new language, but this is the language of who you are. In the early stages there may be parts of yourself that have been living outside of your awareness, things about yourself you are completely oblivious to. But through the process of talking and learning, these parts suddenly show up and the process makes sense. This is when therapy can get exciting and you may see real changes in yourself, your behavior and mood.
You may also have seen a therapist before, and things went well, or maybe not so well for you. This too can happen, because not all therapy, and not all therapists, are the same. You might find it takes a few tries before you find the person you ‘click’ with. And that’s okay. If nothing else, I will be honest with you. If I do not think I am the right fit for you, I will help you find somebody who is more suitable.
What to Expect?
The most important thing to bare in mind when starting therapy is that you will work… hard. Therapy isn’t always nice and pleasant. Therapy can be challenging, and tough, and tug at your core until your insides hurt. I know, sounds scary, but this is often needed for growth and overcoming life obstacles that hold you back. And remember, I will be with you every step of the way.
