About my practice
Who am I?
My therapy practice is now closed to in-coming clients.
You can find me at www.GettingStrong.net where I will be offering on-line tutoring for students of the GettingStrong.net course.
Put simply, psychotherapy is a learning process that will help you to better cope with your life. This could entail a range of things:
- It can help you to heal from previous trauma or grief.
- It can help you to form more satisfying or lasting relationships with people.
- It can help you to be more at peace with yourself: you may gain some closure on things from your life that are unfinished for you, or you may see yourself more clearly, and know what your weaknesses are - as well as your strengths - and come to accept yourself as you are.
- It can help you to change behaviours and patterns that are self-destructive.
- It can help you to access some parts of yourself that you have had to disown, in order to fit into your family, or society. In other words your potential.
- It may help you to access unconscious memories, both good and bad.
- It can help you to learn to love yourself and others.
- It can help you to discover your spirituality, or your sexuality.
- It can help you learn to be more assertive and communicate better.
- It can help you develop self-esteem.
- It can teach you coping skills, such as anxiety management.
- It can help you over come, and prevent, depression.
- It can help you be a better parent, friend, daughter, son, or spouse.
- It can help you to learn to enjoy life, more and regain your playful side.
Whatever your doubts about therapy, just remember this: in a survey completed by Consumers Reports, the vast majority of the consumers said they felt their therapy was successful.
