Counselling and Psychotherapy in Maidstone & Tonbridge
Jonathan Smith Therapy
Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy in Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge or remotely via Zoom nationwide. I am a qualified and insured Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I offer long and short-term Psychodynamic therapy on a weekly basis for a range of issues including but not limited to: anxiety, depression, addiction, bereavement, loss, self-harm, abuse, trauma, stress, relationships and issues in the workplace.
Anxiety and depression can manifest in many different ways: difficulty sleeping, loss of appetite, lack of enjoyment in favoured activities, lessening attention span, loss or lack of identity, difficulty in clear thought or intrusive thoughts to name just a few. At times it's not clear why we feel the way we do: perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed or are engaging in patterns of behaviour which are negatively affecting your life. Conversely you may be all too aware of events or relationships which have, or are affecting your mental wellbeing and wish to explore these in a supportive and nurturing environment. Psychodynamic therapy, at its core, is the exploration of our past and how this affects our present: through engaging with the emotions associated we hope to excise our past trauma, understand ourselves better and live a happier more fulfilling life. Starting any type of therapy can be daunting, especially if life and events are feeling overwhelming, no matter what has brought you here you will be treated with warmth, confidentiality and respect.
