My experience includes working with the NHS, the corporate sector, charities as well as in private practice.
I work with a large range of people from many different backgrounds, nationalities and cultures and with a wide variety of issues.
Exploring Your Issues
Sometimes people come to the first session with one main particular issue they want to work on. However, sometimes that initial issue results from a deeper longstanding issue which means that the person may want to continue our work for longer.
For example, if someone is struggling so much with their relationship, family situation, anxiety, depression, bereavement or work that this is the initial main focus. Exploring this issue can shed light onto other contributing factors.
At other times people work on issues that they have noticed tend to be recurring patterns in their life.
Taking the opportunity to explore your thoughts, feelings, assumptions, hopes and fears can help you to develop greater self awareness.
Over time, this can enable you to have greater choice and ability to manage how you react and behave.
Increasing your self awareness can contribute to other areas of your life and relationsips.
