Psychotherapy can offer a unique experience; a space outside of everyday life and relationships, in which to connect with aspects of your life that may be causing you concern.
This concern may be specific and seem quite clear to you, such as dealing with bereavement, relationship breakdown, ill-health, addiction or anxiety, however it is not unusual to seek therapy for more complex reasons that may be harder to define.
Sometimes a sense that life could be better or should not be so painful can lead to arriving here, or a sense that something from the past is blocking your progress. There may be a sense of desperation and despair that is driving your search for support.
Psychotherapy with Laura Solomons
Whatever the reason for seeking therapy, I offer a safe, confidential and containing environment, in which together we will work to shed light on your situation, in the hope of finding meaningful and lasting ways of navigating life. This will be a collaborative process involving commitment and courage.
We will begin with an exploratory session or sessions to think through whether this type of therapy is suited to you at this time. Having made that decision, our 50-minute sessions will take place at the same time and place each week.
As well as work in private practice, I have worked in a variety of clinical settings, which has enabled me to work with people of all ages and backgrounds. I understand and adapt to the differing needs the individual, always seeking to meet a client where they are. If you would like to discuss the possibility of working together, you are welcome to get in touch and we can begin a conversation without obligation.
