COMPASSION, WARMTH, EMPATHY, NONJUDGMENT
For some, seeing a new Psychologist for the first time, or the tenth time, can be daunting and anxiety provoking. The idea of opening yourself and feeling vulnerable by telling a stranger your deepest concerns, worries and weaknesses, can be disconcerting.
Let me re-assure you, that once you make the appointment, you have started the journey of taking responsibility and making change.
Do not underestimate how strong you are as true strength is the courage to seek and ask for help.
With Compassion, Warmth and Empathy, I believe from experience that therapy always begins with establishing trust and rapport, listening intently to your concerns with empathy, without judgment.
This is the platform which then enables an effective therapeutic journey we make together.
Early on it is also important that from what you report, with specific assessments I provide you and with my expertise, you develop a sound understanding of the various factors which have contributed to your current state. Whether they are maladaptive unhelpful beliefs learnt from childhood to recent unresolved stressors, the goal is to enable you with tools and strategies learnt in therapy to implement not just for now, but for your future.
