Counselling and psychotherapy
Taking the first step towards asking for support can be difficult, but once that first step has been taken, you will hopefully begin an insightful and rewarding process of self-discovery that can lead to improvement in many aspects of your life.
Both counselling and psychotherapy can help us deal with our problems in a fresh way and enrich our lives generally. Whilst the terms are sometimes used interchangeably, counselling tends to focus on a specific current problem, whereas psychotherapy tends to look at more deep-seated issues that are likely to have a basis in the past. The type of counselling and psychotherapy I offer is psychodynamic.
Together, in a safe and confidential space, we will build a trusting relationship. This relationship will be used to explore personal problems, to enable you to make sense of your unhappiness. Through careful listening, reflecting and questioning I will support you in developing insight into your problems and issues, help you rediscover your own inner resources and enable you to approach your life in a new way.
Psychodynamic counselling helped me to make it through a difficult period in my life. I got my self-respect back and I see my future in a much brighter light. I am really grateful for having had Gaynor as my therapist.
I am not what happened to me,
I am what I choose to become.
