By having the space to speak without judgement, you can free yourself from your burdens and anxieties. Attending therapy will enable you to better understand yourself, your desires and the world around you. Having a dedicated time to think and speak about your subjective experiences allows for the development of new insights of those experiences and oneself.
Coming to speak can be daunting for many, yet it gives you the opportunity to be fully heard by someone, perhaps for the first time. I practice a type of listening that is individual to each person as opposed to one size fits all model.
Kristine has experience with a wide range of symptoms that include but are not limited to:
Bereavement and Loss
The consequences of domestic and sexual abuse
