“You are not your illness. You have an individual story to tell. You have a name, a history and a personality. Staying yourself is part of the battle.” Julian Seifte

There are many reasons for therapy and most often they cannot be reduced to a single subject, but to give you an idea, below are a range of reasons people have been seeking therapy for: Relationships and intimacy, Self-esteem and confidence, Sadness and Depression, Anxiety, Anger and mood swings, Loneliness and isolation, Stress and burn-out issues, Addiction, Self- harm, Bereavement and loss, Issues with eating, weight or body image. Sometimes taking the first steps towards engaging in therapy can be a lonely and very personal journey. People therefore find it helpful to know a bit more about these initial steps. I have tried to include as much information as possible that you may be curious about on this site. If after having read through these pages you feel you would like to meet then please either call or email me through the contact page.
