"The only way round is through" Robert Frost
People tend to look for counselling or psychotherapy in times of crisis or distress. Talking therapy can help you to find a way forward with the challenges that you face. It involves a careful exploration of all that is going on for you, both in the outside world and inside of yourself. We can't always change the things that happen to us, but we can change the way we think and feel about our experiences.
Difficulties can force us to look at our lives in a new way, and they can also allow us to learn more about ourselves. Psychotherapy can help us to reassess our priorities and feel clearer about the direction in which we wish to continue. It can bring about lasting change and a deeper sense of contentment and fulfilment in the longer term.
In a world where the focus is often on pursuing journeys and dreams out there in the world, chasing achievements, relationships and possessions, psychotherapy offers us the opportunity to explore our inner world. This exploration provides the chance to work on our relationship with ourselves, to feel more comfortable in our own skin. Here lies the possibility of finding real peace.
I am an experienced counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor working in Bath and south Bristol. I work with adults, both face-to-face and online, and am registered with the UK Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP).
I work at a centre called Openings, which is based on the top floor of a building in George Street, Bath. Having worked previously for the NHS, I now also work privately one day per week in Saltford surgery, near Keynsham.
Some of the difficulties that I may be able to help you with include:
• Relationship difficulties
• Low self-esteem
• Loss of direction
