Talking about a problem is the first step in solving it.
We often get in the way of ourselves without even realising it and it can be very difficult to get ourselves ‘unstuck’ on our own. Join me to build a roadmap for managing symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress and adjustment difficulties. Most individuals I work with present patterns of anxieties, insecurities, and/or episodes of a flat , deflated and unmotivated mood. Quite often distress emerges in specific contexts, like – the workplace, under specific work-related pressures, at home, when alone, in parenting, or socialising.
My therapy focuses on how clients view themselves (the relationship they hold with themselves) and how they become defensive in their lives which leads to inner suffering. This approach comes from attachment models and 'Self Psychology'. Personal crises that occur at times of significant change or loss reveals how our self concept and how secure or insecure we feel about ourselves at times. The goal of individual therapy is to identify unhelpful patterns, appreciate their previous survival value, and to acquire better patterns that are geared towards authentic self esteem in order to thrive.
