Nolan Counselling & Psychotherapy
"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change."
Humanistic Integrative Counsellor
Whether you have unaddressed trauma from your past, are suffering from symptoms of depression and anxiety or are simply going through a rough patch in life, therapy can help.
The therapy hour lasts 50 minutes. This is your space and you can bring whatever you choose. There are no judgements or diagnoses made in my therapy room, all feelings and ideas are acceptable. Therapy moves at your pace and it is also your decision when to end and move on.
I hope to help you to shift things in your world, find your own answers, your own self-acceptance and help you to simply gain more control, sense of self and autonomy. I find once this has been attained, life can often seem easier.
I understand how daunting it can be speaking to a virtual stranger, therefore I aim for a warm and welcoming atmosphere. I believe it is important to feel comfortable in the room with your therapist. Feel free to get in touch with me to discuss your issues further or to set up an initial consultation.
Short term Therapy
6 - 12 Weeks
I often liken short term therapy to a train on a track. If you shift the track an inch, a few miles down the line it will be miles from its original path.
Short term therapy can be useful for:
* Panic attacks
* Managing change
* Relationship loss
* Post-natal depression
Long term Therapy
3 months plus
It takes a long time to create our patterns in life; similarly, it can take time to unpick them. I work by helping you to get to the root of the problem.
Using psychodynamic theory, I focus on your past, childhood, dreams and unconscious processes. Studies show that this deeper work can help to greatly improve symptoms of anxiety and depression thus helping you move to a freer more fulfilling life.
Long term therapy can be useful for:
* Relationship Issues
* Low self-esteem & low self-worth
* Psychosomatic symptoms (eg. Migraines, Psoriasis, IBS)
* Survivors of Childhood Emotional and Physical Abuse
* Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse
* Survivors of Childhood Emotional Neglect
* Domestic Violence
What to expect
Contact me about an initial consultation. In the first session I will aim to find out the nature of your problem or presenting issues, a little about your current life and a little about your past.
Finding the right therapist is important for your personal growth, so if you feel you don't want to continue after the consultation, that is perfectly normal.
