What is therapy?
Using a model called Internal Family Systems, I’ll support you to listen deeply to yourself and through that process to come to understand yourself more fully. From that place of understanding we can support you to have more choice in your actions and reactions, to transform negative feelings and heal emotional wounds.
Each person is a mix of feelings, behaviours and reactions. We might have an angry part, a self-critical part, a part that feels depression and another that feels anxiety. We might have parts that take over and lead to compulsive or addictive behaviours.
As we get to know each of these parts we learn that they are acting in a self-protective way, and that they were usually created in response to some earlier emotional wounding. As understanding grows, we can offer healing to these old wounds. As these wounds heal, the self-protective parts begin to relax and life starts to get easier.
Mostly this process happens through us talking: you share, I’ll reflect and ask questions to help move the process along. It can also include paying attention to where we feel things in our bodies (nerves in our stomach, tension in our shoulders and so on) and working with visualisations.
I am currently offering sessions online via Google Meet, and face to face both inside and outdoors.
I offer sessions Tuesday to Friday. I tend to have more sessions available during the day, but do offer some evening sessions.
£55 per 50 minute session.
Therapy is an ongoing relationship and sessions are usually weekly.
