Therapy for the Mind, Body & Soul
Hi, I'm Agneta. Do you need help to understand your feelings better, address symptoms, resolve an issue that is troubling you - or perhaps something less defined?
I offer a supportive, confidential and forward looking talking therapy treatment in which to work out what kind of help would be best for you, to learn how to put words to feelings so that you can communicate more clearly and help you feel better.
Becoming more aware of issues that are affecting you, can empower you to make beneficial life changes.
Even if you don’t know what problems you are suffering from, you can still benefit from talking therapy. Just having an independent person to talk to can be of relief.
I can help you.
I'm Glad You Found Me
There may be times when you need to talk to someone outside your personal network.
Psychodynamic Counselling provides a safe place where thoughts and feelings can be explored confidently – aiming to target unresolved personal issues.
It offers a therapeutic treatment, rather than advice, that helps you to resolve problems that can impact your mental health.
If you're struggling with depression, you're not alone. Talking therapy can help to manage your depression and improve your overall quality of life.
There are several different types of anxiety disorders. Counselling can help you identify underlying issues that contribute to your anxiety.
Stress is a necessary part of life,
but it is important to manage stress effectively in order to maintain overall health and well-being.
Counselling can help couples or individuals address and work through their relationship problems in a structured and supportive way.
It's important to find healthy ways to express and manage angry feelings rather than letting them lead to destructive or harmful behaviour.
I have over 20 years of counselling experience. I have worked as a Clinical Service Manager for Psychological Services in the NHS and a Student Counsellor at the Royal College of Arts.
Let Your Thoughts & Feelings Flow
Heraclitus, the ancient Greek Philosopher, taught that the universe is a constant becoming, a process of change. Everything around us is changing just like fresh waters are ever flowing, renewing the stream. Hence the expression "Panta Rhei," meaning “All Things Are Flowing." And we, as people, are also a stream of change.
Talking therapy focuses on 'Free Floating Association,' which aims to deepen your self-understanding by looking at whatever thoughts, words, or images come freely to your mind. Letting your mind run free in a safe environment, can help identify genuine thoughts and feelings about your life situations that are causing you distress, yet you are not aware of.
How Talking Therapy Works
For you to make a change, you need to have a clearer understanding of what caused a particular problem in the first place. A painful situation in the present may have its roots in the past, although you may not be aware of the connection.
The Process of Targeting Unresolved Personal Issues:
The beginning focuses on making you feel comfortable, by covering all aspects of how counselling proceeds. The middle is ongoing therapeutic work; sessions & breaks, announced by the therapist in advance. The end must be approached in a gradual, measured way, working towards a closure.
The result is not ‘advice’ but rather a treatment crafted by listening and exploring past events.
“Agneta thoroughly helped me after I burned out from stress and the anxiety that followed. She has a very warm and gentle approach, and I enjoyed the fluidity of the sessions as we navigated through my different situations.”
I will be glad to discuss your needs and establish how talking therapy can help you to find a way forward.
