Why therapy?

There are as many reasons to consider therapy as there are people. 


Sometimes the decision is prompted by a change in circumstances, such as a difficult relationship, illness, stress, or a loss. Sometimes there is sadness, anxiety, or depression without there being any clear or immediate reason why. Sometimes there is a strong curiosity to understand  ourselves and others better, to think more about what it means to be alive.


Therapy is a space to explore what is troubling you, when you no longer want to deal with it alone.


It isn’t always easy to look at the things that cause you pain, but counselling can help you become aware of past patterns in your life, understand yourself better, and discover different ways to cope.


To talk about any difficulty, large or small, contact me by phone, text or email to arrange an initial consultation, or just to discuss whether therapy might be the right way forward for you. All appointments are currently online or by phone.
