WHY PEOPLE COME TO THERAPY

One barrier to getting started can sometimes be uncertainty around what presenting issues or focus areas are deemed "suitable" for therapy.

It might be helpful to take a look at some of the most common issues and focus areas clients have brought to therapy and experienced significant improvement through our work together:

​​

  • Feeling low

  • Depression

  • Anxiety 

  • Panic attacks

  • Moving on from a breakup or divorce

  • Grief after the loss of a loved one

  • Struggling with loneliness

  • Work related difficulties

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Managing stress

  • Low self-confidence

  • Low self-esteem

  • Finding a healthy work-life balance

  • Feeling lost in life and lacking direction

  • Lacking motivation

  • Managing a stressful life transition/event

  • Life adjustment issues

  • Reducing time spent playing video games

  • Sexual health related issues

  • Reducing/quitting problematic pornography use

  • Healing after a traumatic experience/abuse

  • Self-harm

  • Alcohol/substance misuse

  • Problem gambling

  • Existential issues

  • Making sense of childhood experiences

 

​Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of focus areas I have previously worked with or would be willing to work with now. The list is simply intended to provide you with an idea of the wide range of presenting difficulties and focus areas that can be addressed in therapy.

A NOTE RISK

I conduct a thorough risk assessment as part of my initial assessment process. 

If you need immediate support with managing suicidal thoughts, please contact your GP.
