We come to therapy for all sorts of different reasons. Perhaps the most important thing to say is that there is no single, â€œrightâ€ reason.
I work with most issues depending on what you are looking for. Over the years I have worked with a variety of clients, from all walks of life.
Sometimes people want support because things have happened to them, life events such as a death, a divorce or a break-up. I work a lot with individuals who have experienced difficulties early on in life, particularly losses and separations. My background in the field of attachment is helpful for working with relationship issues, whether its relationships with people or with other things in life, for example, food â€“ part of my PhD included working with individuals diagnosed with eating disorders. Some individuals have specific symptoms of stress, anxiety or depression. Others struggle with low self-esteem or a lack of confidence.
You donâ€™t have to have a specific reason to come to therapy â€“ you could just feel lost and lonely. Maybe you canâ€™t pinpoint whatâ€™s wrong, things just donâ€™t feel right and life simply isnâ€™t going the way you expected. If youâ€™re asking yourself, â€œwhy am I feeling the way that Iâ€™m feeling?â€ then exploring this in therapy can be very helpful.
