Thank you for taking a look at my therapist page.
I am just wondering if I can convey to you a realistic sense of how you might experience psychotherapy if we did work together … Well, I guess that requires considerable imagination from both of us!
Obviously, we need to spend some time in conversation together when we can each bring our own areas of expertise to our joint endeavour. It is our mutual willingness to engage in a therapy relationship that makes advantageous life-change a possibility.
Our time together
It is natural that you choose the topics we talk about during our time together.
My task, with your consent, is to help you focus on emotionally sensitive experiences that emerge in what you tell me.
Together we function as a sort of ‘biofeedback loop’ to help you notice and reduce anxiety that pushes down emerging feelings.
Also, I draw your attention to ways you divert my attention away from our focus and distract yourself from full awareness of your experience.
I am more actively involved in the conversation than many people expect.
Our emotional focus leads into careful exploration of thoughts, ideas and recurring life-patterns.
