You might be finding life difficult, feeling anxious, depressed or experiencing a significant life event such as bereavement, divorce or redundancy. You might feel dissatisfied with your life and want to understand yourself better.
I am an experienced BACP registered psychodynamic psychotherapist working in Croydon offering short-term and open-ended therapy to adults of all ages.
Therapy provides you with the opportunity to explore any issues which might be concerning you. I will work with you to explore current and historic life events, feelings, relationships, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour. This difficult and often emotionally challenging process will help you to more fully understand yourself, ultimately, allowing you to take greater control and live a life that feels more genuine, connected and meaningful.
My approach is psychodynamic: the psychodynamic model holds the view that our current difficulties can have origins in earlier times of our lives, particularly in childhood, and that the mind conceals or retains feelings or memories which may be too painful or difficult for the conscious mind to process. This can be the root cause of many of our difficulties.
I will work with you to not only explore your conscious thoughts, feelings and experiences, but also those you may not be fully aware of, but which may be having an impact on your life.
I am experienced in working with a wide range of life issues such as:
