We all form unconscious leanings and self-protective habits early in life, based on our experiences. As we grow up and our life changes, these habits may become less useful and limit us, rather than support us in a positive way.

Looking at how you respond to things that matter, you can start to make sense of your life in a new way. Working with someone who is genuinely interested and welcoming, you can discover the missing pieces and ‘join the dots’. This usually liberates energy and you no longer have to work so hard to just be. Life becomes less effortful.


There are many reasons you might choose to see a psychologist. It’s natural to feel down once in a while, but if you have been feeling unease for a while or find yourself in one of the following situations, you may benefit from some support:

  • Maybe you are not comfortable confiding in friends and family. Or it’s just too hard to find the words for it anyway
  • Stress, anxiety or depression affects your enjoyment of life
  • Your doctor has suggested that seeing a psychologist will help you on your road to recovery or will help identify the reasons you feel unwell
  • You have tried changing a situation or relationship before without success and would like to get help to try again
  • You and your partner want to stay connected and deal with your challenges together
