In life people have many stresses and concerns. Support usually comes from family, friends and a person’s inner resources. However, when difficulties do not resolve naturally and distress becomes a preoccupation, therapy may be useful.
It may be hard to change problems or distressed feelings; but change, when it occurs, is best sustained when people have support within their family. Therefore, as a therapist, I often work with a number of people in the family who are affected.
· young people’s problems · fostering · adoption · sexual abuse · domestic abuse · bullying · mental health difficulties · anxiety · couple relationship · divorce · separation · step-parenting · family relationships · children’s worries · bereavement ·
Therapy can be for an individual, couples and family groups.
It is confidential and can involve one, several or many sessions. Sessions last an hour.
