How can I help?

I primarily draw on the theoretical principles of Transactional Analysis.

 

What does this mean for you if you are considering contacting me to enquire about counselling? 

 

 Together we will explore some of your earliest childhood memories and emotions and seek parallels with your experiences of life today. We will trace the source of strong emotions in your present that will always resonate from an earlier time. Sometimes, really strong and overwhelming feelings are exact replays of the emotions we felt as a vulnerable and frightened child, and without the help of therapy, we can experience them as though we were still that child. Counselling using Transactional Analysis helps us to access the resources we have as an adult to calm the clamour of that frightened child within us. We learn tools and techniques that can transform our ability to cope and that removes us from self-defeating patterns of behaviour that have harmed us and our relationships in the past.


I firmly believe that this approach offers hope. It offers the ability to change. It shows us that we can free ourselves from the impact of negative childhood experiences or negative messages that we absorbed and thought of as truths. It allows us the opportunity to create new and positive truths about ourselves that can open doors to better relationships, career prospects and happiness.


Counselling using Transactional Analysis throws a spotlight on how we relate to those around us.

 

Do you notice that some relationships seem to go round and round in an unhealthy and never ending dynamic of drama and upset? Do you feel pulled between resentment and guilt?


Do you feel that no matter what you do, nothing ever changes, or that good things happen only to other people?

Do you have firm beliefs about your lot in life, or are you restricted by what you ‘should’ and ‘shouldn’t’ do.

Perhaps you’re experiencing loss or sadness, are having struggles at work, in your personal life, or in your relationships. Maybe you have difficult situations from your past that get in the way of your happiness in the present. You have experienced trauma or abuse, feel shame, anxiety, or depression. Whatever has brought you to this point, you have found the strength to seek help and that is your first step to taking back control and beginning your personal journey towards healing. A safe space matters to us all, especially at times of turmoil and pain, and that is what you will find here when you need it the most.
