People seek help from a therapist for all sorts of very different reasons. Often, these have to do with experiencing difficult or unmanageable emotions, feeling depressed or anxious. Loss, anger, loneliness, relationship difficulties, feeling confused or unfulfilled, or wanting to be happy are some of the issues that one might want explore in therapy.
I have always been interested in the emotional life of individuals and, how that has developed, and the impact that has on the present. Therapy allows patients a unique space in which to explore thoughts, doubts and concerns in a confidential environment. The inquiry into the unconscious mind, facilitated by the therapeutic relationship, often gives insight into issues previously unknown as well as opening up new possibilities. When feeling safe, we are more likely to further develop as individuals while getting closer to our true selves.
