About Therapy

There is much argument as to the difference between Psychotherapy and Counselling - and in truth there are more similarities than differences. 

Both can help you resolve emotional issues, improve relationships, understand  yourself better and, hopefully, live a more fulfilling life. I have qualifications in both psychotherapy and counselling and refer to myself as a therapist - a term often used to cover the whole field.

As a therapist I will not tell you how to live your life but rather I will help you discover your own solutions by developing a higher level of awareness of what you are doing, how you are doing it, and how you can change yourself; at the same time learning to accept and value yourself.

Most people seeking therapy will be experiencing an emotional problem but those without particular issues can also benefit if they are interested in taking responsibility for making their life better. Therapy can do for the mind what exercise does for the body. It can liven you up, help you to think more flexibly, make you stronger emotionally, and help to stop more serious problems from occurring.
 
The path to our destination is not always a straight one. 
We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. 
Maybe it doesn’t matter which road we embark on. 
Maybe what matters is that we embark.’
