Message to clients

Making the decision to attend therapy can be a difficult one. Having the awareness that something needs to change or that you need help is the first, second, third step and part of every one after that. You deserve to have support along the way.

Our work will focus on helping you to better understand yourself and your needs - first, by finding self-kindness and acknowledging your feelings as they arise. Often it is easy to judge ourselves and this can create challenges as we try to make change, because it tends to increase anxiety and uncertainty as opposed to self-worth.

Your feelings and needs are important - and together, we will discover ways to help you get your needs get met and feel genuine in all parts of self.
