“Creativity is essentially a lonely art. An even lonelier struggle. To some a blessing. To others a curse. It is in reality the ability to reach inside yourself and drag forth from your very soul an idea.”
When past experiences impact on the present by affecting our freedom to create and express ourselves freely then talking therapy may be helpful.
Psychotherapy offers give structured help in dealing with troubling experiences in the present and from the past. You might feel anxious, depressed or angry. Troubled by unwanted thoughts or feelings. Wanting things to be different and not sure what to do that will make a difference.
Most of us will at some point have been able to talk to someone about their problems and found it helped. Therapy can help you understand yourself better and help you to find ways to support your creativity and artistic mindset in ways that are more effective, and result in more satisfying experiences.
In my psychotherapy I use Transactional Analysis (TA) as my main way of working. TA holds that everyone has the ability to learn and change and that individuals are ultimately responsible for their own behaviour, thoughts and feelings. This idea is incredibly powerful as it offers great potential for us to make new decisions about our lives and carry out personal change. It also means that my focus will be on helping to discover what you want and then how you might be able to bring that into your life.
