There are so many reasons we suffer in our lives, or get into situations that seem difficult to resolve alone. At times these problems seem insurmountable or overwhelming. At a certain point we realise we could do with some help or at least an impartial and supportive perspective to shed light on our challenges. A psychotherapist is trained to support you in understanding and addressing your personal concerns. Psychotherapy can help you confidently respond to the issues you are facing and to develop the mindset to lead a rewarding and fulfilling life.
Beyond helping you debrief and reflect on what is happening for you and what you might do to improve things, there are various strategies known to help address psychological difficulties. I use a range of proven strategies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), mindfulness based therapy and various applied meditation and healing modalities. These provide a set of skills with which to respond effectively to what is going on in your mind and your life.
Many people find that the benefits of such skills are a revelation and that they wish they had learned them before. The result of having these skills can be an increasing sense of self confidence and effectiveness in the face of life’s challenges. This can lead to a shift in perspective and mindset over time from one of struggling to one of thriving. Online/Skype psychotherapy is a convenient and effective way of accessing support and learning self mastery skills.
