You may already know what it is specifically that you wish to work on, or have some vague sense of wanting to explore a less well-defined issue which may, for example, be getting in the way of present happiness, fulfilment and wellbeing.
You will find that I am empathic and compassionate while exploring your experience of the world. I take the importance of the work very seriously, though you will find that I endeavour to bring in some creativity, fun and humour into the process where appropriate. Therapy can be very relaxing, emotional, invigorating and/or thought-provoking.
As the client, you may think that your 'problem' is huge and limiting, but other well-meaning folk, family, friends or colleagues, may not have noticed, may dismiss it altogether, or see it as inconsequential or not 'real'. If it's a problem to you, it's a problem. On the other hand, your 'problem' may be impacting on other people, and that may be part of your motivation for change.
If you are shy or embarrassed about your 'problem', there is the option to work 'content free' towards a successful outcome. In other words, you don't necessarily need to describe the 'what, why, who, when, where' – only demonstrate enough of the 'how' of how you experience the problem that you are wishing to change now.
My approach is to draw on a number of different, integrated techniques to find ways in which you can teach yourself how to let go of self-defeating 'stories', learn to believe in your capacity to achieve what you want, perform with confidence, or accept/let go of past experiences which are impairing you ability to reach your full potential. A few examples of things that my clients have achieved include:
- Performing well in tests/exams (including car, motorbike, HGV, rope skills/tree-climbing)
- Improving confidence in delivering oral presentations and musical performance
- Moving on from current or past 'traumas', including educational ones
- Increasing motivation
- Organising and prioritising time/energy expenditure
- Liberating creative urge, latent or actual
- Overcoming procrastination ('stuck-ness')
- Changing direction and/or gear in career
- Learning to be aware of own capabilities
- Letting go of excess weight, smoking and other bad habits
- Freedom from phobias, panic attacks, night-terrors
- Learning to overcome stress, depression, fear of mortality, grief and loss
- Improving poor self concept and low self-esteem
- Resolving relationship difficulties, including coping with divorce
Let's be persistent at getting to the heart of what is important for you!
