As human beings we all carry scars from difficult experiences or conditions in our lives that continue to have a limiting or negative impact on us. Fortunately there is a wealth of tools and possibilities available for unpacking and resolving these difficulties. In fact with the right tools and exploration our very problems often become gateways to our deeper selves and the seeds for realising our true potential.
As a highly experienced professional Jan understands the significance of taking the first step of choosing a therapist and beginning a conversation about personal concerns. Jan also understands how essential it is to feel comfortable and supported in the therapeutic setting and relationship, and makes every effort to provide this. However on the occasion where there does not seem to be the right fit, Jan is happy to help find a therapist more suitable.
Sessions begin by hearing about your primary concerns and most desirable outcomes. Further questioning and listening helps these become clearer and get to the real crux of the issue. From here there are many ways to resolve the central difficulty.
