Therapy is about story-telling.  It is about the desire to talk, to understand, and to be understood.  In starting therapy, you are saying that you want to enter into a disciplined conversation.  "It is not a superficial chat and does not seek quick, temporary relief by reassurance and suggestion.  It involves talking honestly and with increasing familiarity and intimacy between people who are equally committed to understanding the sufferer and his or her problems, with the aim of bringing about change." (Bateman, Brown, and Pedder).

My areas of interest:

  • Medium-term therapy
  • Long-term therapy
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Inter-personal struggles and conflict
  • A wish to explore your psychology and your unconscious in order to understand yourself in a different way
