I am primarily trained in psychodynamic therapy as well. I see clients in individual therapy who may be experiencing mental health issues such as : Depression Generalised anxiety disorder Obsessive-compulsive behaviours Post-traumatic stress disorder Anger issues. Addictions(Drug, alcohol, food, sex) I also work with clients who may be experiencing relationship difficulties, sexual abuse or self harming thoughts or behaviours. As a couples counsellor I see the couple in a joint session first and then have one individual session with both the partners followed up by mostly joint sessions.I work impartially, and aim at enabling a transparent and safe space . Some common issues are: Communication and Boundary Issues (fine like this). Lack of Sexual Intimacy. Abuse. I mostly practice Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) with couples which has proven to be greatly effective with many couples, having moved from relationship distress to a more healthy and loving relationship. I suggest an initial arrangement of 6 sessions, at which point we will assess how you are doing, and what our next steps will be. Couple counselling may elicit significant results if both partners are committed to this process.
