How does therapy help?

About Therapy
It is often the case when people come to me for help - whether it's because they have been experiencing anxiety, panic, depression or more commonly, a combination of these - that they have tried other ways of helping themselves for some time and often feel as though they have run out of options

However, whether we realise it or not, we always have options. We can choose to make changes in our life, or choose not to. We can choose to keep repeating behaviours that cause us and those close to us to be unhappy, or choose not to. But when we are in a situation that has been on-going, it is difficult to think and act with clarity and often, we find that we simply lose confidence in our own ability to improve how we are living, how we feel, how we think and what we do

We get stuck. And very often, being "stuck" means that we "get in our own way" of making any changes for the better

Are you "getting in your own way" of feeling and being well? Anxiety, panic, low mood or depression are all to often the result of being in our own way, and it's hard to see how we might be able to change and be who we really are

This is what psychotherapy is for. Working with a therapist that you trust, one who can help you work out for yourself your best way through and forward to where you want to be, can be a challenge but no more of a challenge than otherwise choosing to continue living an unhappy or unfulfilled life

To find out how I can help takes only a telephone call or an email. If you call and you don't get an answer straightaway, it's because I am in clinic or teaching. Leave a message with your name and contact number. I will call you back as soon as I can. Alternatively, send me an email and I will email you back:
