Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. C.G. Jung
Unconscious aspects of our personalities affect our lives, pulling us into repetition of fixed patterns through which we often end up in similar life situations, attract certain people and sustain barriers that impede change. When discovering the unconscious, which we then integrate into our consciousness, to a greater extent we are able to decide on our fate rather than let fate decide for us.
One of the main aims of Psychodynamic Counselling is to gain insight into the underlying mechanisms of your difficulties and to work through your emotions in a confidential, non-judgemental atmosphere.
Although the process can be liberating, it is not unusual to have doubts and feel apprehensive about counselling, both prior to and during therapy. As an experienced counsellor, I understand this and am open to discuss with you any fears and expectations that you may have. I ensure confidentiality and I am held to the Code of Conduct of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) at all times. I am a BACP registered psychodynamic counsellor (membership number 849771) and a Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered Counselling Psychologist (registration number PYL34411). I hold Professional Liability and Indemnity Insurance.
Scope of therapeutic help
