Counselling in South East London
The beginning of therapy makes you feel nervous, perhaps unsure where to start from; revisiting those traumatic memories often embedded in the subconscious can prevent you from moving forward while inable you to make a connection with your inner self.
Counselling is a private outlet in which to talk of difficulties emerging from family dynamics, interpersonal trauma, loss. I can’t single-handedly change your thoughts and feelings, I can guide you towards how to do those things, but the actual doing — that’s all you. I as your therapist am to provide you with a safe space to explore changes and make progressive steps to achieve your aims.
Couple therapy explores methods how to accept differences, to share emotional needs, to build strength and a better insight into their lives. Pre marital counselling enables you to navigate your expectations, to negotiate a satisfactory plan for your future, to feel confident in taking your relationship one step further. The focus of my work with couples is about the dynamics playing in your rapport, attachment styles, and to improve the communication a predominant aspect to maintain quality in the relationship with your partner, free from gender based - role display.
