Individual Psychotherapy in West & North-West London
You may be wondering whether psychotherapy is appropriate for you. Many people struggling with emotional difficulties, which may affect their ability to function adequately, find that therapy, in providing a consistent and reliable space, can enable a person to develop her/his potential for emotional understanding and, in the case of a person who has experienced a mental or emotional collapse, good psychotherapy can help reverse the situation and turn it into a new beginning.
The purpose of psychotherapy, therefore, is not only to rectify the problems but also to allow a person to utilize their full potential.
The kinds of emotional distresses which bring people into therapy often include the following:
- Low mood, feelings of emptiness and a sense of dissatisfaction
- Experiencing difficulties in making or sustaining relationships or being repeatedly drawn into unhappy ones
- Low self esteem and lack of confidence
- Fears of rejection if those around you knew the ‘real you’
- Struggling with feelings of low mood, anxiety or depression during pregnancy or after the birth of baby
- Finding it hard to come to terms with a life change
- Suffering the pain of bereavement or loss
- May be suffering the effects of sexual or physical abuse
- Worried that you may have an eating disorder.
- You may feel troubled in a way that is hard to describe
- Another reason for seeking assistance is a desire to develop your potential in personal life or work – to live a more satisfying life.
