Feeling real is more than existing...

it is finding

a way to exist

as oneself... 

and to have

a self into which

to retreat for relaxation.

D.W. Winnicott

Why Engage in Psychotherapy?

People seek therapy for different reasons. Some are hoping for relief from specific problems such as depression, anxiety or relationship difficulties. Others may have a general sense of not feeling as happy as they imagine they could and would like help understanding this feeling.


In psychotherapy we engage in a process of self discovery in which people come to feel more in touch with themselves. This often leads to relief from symptoms and a deeper connection with oneself and others.
