Reaching out to see a therapist can be daunting – especially if you haven’t done it before. You will naturally have a number of questions, and you are free to email me with any queries you may have.
Alternatively, please see below to view answers to the most commonly asked questions about my psychotherapy service.
You might prefer to be in the room with me, rather than talking over Zoom, but this latter option allows you to process difficult emotions from the comfort of your own home. This helps you feel much more relaxed compared to travelling to a clinic. And the more comfortable you feel at the start of each session, the quicker we will be able to crack on with tackling the real issues at hand.
It is very normal to feel like nothing will improve how you feel, but that ability to heal is inside all of us. As long as you are ready to make a change and willing to accept the help you need to move forward, things will get better over time.
It is always better to talk to someone who can personally relate to the feelings you are going through. Even if your situation is different, the underlying symptoms of PTSD are always the same, and I am here to help you navigate them in a safe way.
Despite my story, I like to be light-hearted in the therapy room. We can’t be serious all the time, after all, and laughing is the best medicine. And if you can heal without going through the pain of prolonged counselling – which often ends up just opening up old wounds – why would you choose not to? Therapy doesn’t have to be painful; in my presence you will always feel comfortable and leave our sessions with a smile on your face.
Most therapy can be extremely costly due to the sheer number of sessions you have over a prolonged period of time. My therapy is different. I use strategic, proven, targeted techniques that means you only need around six sessions and therefore make a huge saving in the long run.
What price to you place on happiness? How would you feel to wake up and not be weighed down by the same painful memories and/or emotions? Wouldn’t it be worth it?
You’ve already come this far, taking the time to find me and learn about how I work as a PTSD, trauma and anxiety therapist online. That alone is a positive action – an act of love towards yourself. Now let me do the rest and help you move past your problems.
If you feel this way, you are not alone. It is normal to be unsure of something you haven’t tried before. Trauma therapy, however, is a liberating – rather than painful – experience. Many clients of mine feel so weighed down by their trauma that they fail to see how it can be fixed, but I am here to help you change that perspective and embrace the possibility of healing.
People are often sceptical about things they either haven’t tried or tried and didn’t work for them. But remember therapy is a two-way thing. If you can commit to helping yourself feel better, I will commit 100 per cent to guiding you towards a happier place.
It may seem impossible now, but things will feel so different once you have dealt with the issue. After embracing the positive changes that are possible, you will find new energy to cope well in all other aspects of your life.
The PTSD, trauma and anxiety therapy I provide isn’t magical. There are no secrets behind it. The work we do is all based on the science of the brain and how we react in certain situations. I am here to help you find new ways of thinking about difficult experiences so you can move forward without that feeling of being weighed down.
