Issues I Work With
In order to get to the root of the issues you bring, our focus will be on putting them in the context of your own experience, past and present.  In truth personal issues, 'psychological conditions', and even difficult circumstances are very often 'symptoms' of how you are relating to your day to day experience.  They need to be understood in relation to your own particular way of seeing and experiencing the world, yourself, and those around you.  

In therapy we look at how this perspective has shaped the unconscious beliefs and 'strategies' you have developed in order to try to get your needs met and avoid pain, and whether they are actually working for you. Through this process it becomes possible to see and experience things differently and begin to let go of ways of being that perhaps served you once, but are no longer working for you any more.  
Then, through understanding and acceptance, the way you relate to yourself and others begins to change.  As you become more fully yourself, you discover resources you never knew you had, and the difficulties or 'symptoms' can begin to be resolved or simply fall away.
