NB : My practice is full, so I am not currently taking new clients.
Key note statement: I’ve found that therapy works best when it’s is a collaborative project. A healthy part of you comes to therapy to have a 100% honest look at your difficulties so that you can gain your freedom to live the life you want, and despite being a bit anxious (naturally), you are willing to let me get to know you so that I can help you reach your goals. You know this won’t be easy but you are willing to challenge yourself to face those emotions that you’ve been avoiding. This really takes courage, so I will help by providing as much emotional safety as possible.
We also need to acknowledge the less helpful, even destructive part of you that is saying that you don’t deserve to feel better, that you shouldn’t let me and others get close to you. That for some (as yet unknown) reason you have a need to sabotage your life and suffer. Your unconscious has a lot of influence on your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, but if you are prepared to know more about yourself, and non-judgementally and compassionately accept yourself, then you and I can be partners in the effort to help you have the life you are longing for.
