Types of therapy
People enter therapy for many reasons, from anxiety, stress, or depression to trauma and bereavement.

Whatever your circumstances, therapy can be the first step in an empowering journey of self-awareness and transformational change. Therapy can help you implement positive changes in your life!
Psychotherapy is a type of therapy treating emotional and mental health conditions. It is a long term process which allows you to explore how your feelings, thoughts, personal history and current life circumstances interact with each other and are contributing to your current difficulties. It helps you understand yourself better, the choices that you make in life, relieve emotional difficulties, change destructive behavioural patterns and make sense of such experiences. At the end of therapy you will have new skills to overcome your difficulties, you will feel more in control of your life and be able to live a more balanced, happier and fulfilling life.
Counselling is a short term process which addresses mostly the challenges that the individual is facing on a daily basis or process difficult situations such as a breakup, workstress or a big transition in your life. Together we can find new ways of managing your difficulties, understand yourself better and live a more balanced and fulfilling life. Sometimes we need a little help to improve and advance on to the next step in our lives. No matter how those steps may feel I can support you to achieve your goals and make a positive change in your life. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens. – Carl Jung
