Psychoanalytical psychotherapy for individuals and couples, Truro and Cornwall
I am a UKCP registered psychoanalytical psychotherapist based in Truro, Cornwall. I offer a secure space to discuss whatever is on your mind, an opportunity to speak confidentially about things you may not feel able to share elsewhere. Because each person is different I have a different approach for everyone. I am sensitive to the complex issues surrounding gender, class, religion, race and ethnicity, and am respectful of sexual orientation. I have a broad experience of therapy for individuals, and couples counselling.
Why contact a psychotherapist?
There are many reasons a person may choose to seek help. However, some of the more common reasons are: depression, anxiety, stress, eating disorders, self-harm, bereavement, relationship difficulties, anger and many others. It may be that you have been given a diagnosis, 'bi-polar disorder' for example, or 'borderline personality disorder'. Whilst diagnoses may help initially to make sense of your difficulties, and can assist in accessing the right help, I am more concerned with the whole person. This is why I allow time for you to unfold yourself, your history, relationships, wishes and anxieties. Over time it then becomes possible to bring your own words, and give your own meaning to your suffering.
In the course of your therapy you can then discover what holds you back, enabling you to change old patterns and find new ways of approaching, and overcoming your difficulties. This leads towards better solutions; it enables you to be better grounded and take more control over your life, improving your confidence and self-esteem, lowering your anxiety and improving your relationships.
How to find me
My practice is located on Harrison Terrace in Truro, very close to the train station, and about a 7 or 8 minute walk from the centre of town. There is no on-street parking (except by permit), but there are several pay car-parks in the city centre. There is also free parking on Station Road and Chapel Hill, both of which are very nearby.
Whether you are seeking individual therapy, or couples therapy, get in touch and we can talk about what it is you are struggling with, and how I may be able to help.
