Psychotherapy and Counselling
PSYCHOTHERAPY is a therapeutic alliance between the practitioner and the client. It provides a safe and confidential space in which the client's problems, concerns, distress, or wishes can be explored on a weekly basis.
As an Integrative Psychotherapist I work with what you bring in the therapeutic relationship. This may mean looking at how your problem affects you physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually , as well as understanding how past experiences may be linked with and have influenced your present life. In becoming aware of your dynamic, you could make a more informed choice in your life.
In the course of our relationship, uncomfortable past experience may be evoked; though this may be challenging and exerienced as painful, the final aim is to promote your wellness and creative expression, and a more fulfilling way of living for yourself and in your relationships.
COUNSELLING is often short-term therapy. It is more directive and focused on dealing with a specific problem. If concern over other problems should arise , awareness may be directed to it, though whether to explore it or not is your choice.
