A WARM WELCOME

If you are here, it may be that you, or someone you care about, needs some support.
Although you might feel anxious about contacting a psychotherapist, many people say that they are very glad they did.

A psychotherapist is not scary, will not judge you, nor sit in silence, or think your problems are insignificant!

You will be made to feel welcome and respected. You will discover that your psychotherapist does this work because she or he genuinely enjoys it and has a talent for it. The therapist will be warm and have a genuine interest in getting to know you. She or he will take you seriously, and respond sensitively.

Starting psychotherapy is a gentle and gradual process, and an introductory session allows you to experience what it might be like. Step by step, trust is built and you get your feet under the table.

The power of psychotherapy lies in the presence that deep listening offers. Being listened to, being understood, being seen for who you really are, and receiving accurate and kind feedback is balm for the soul.
