Psychotherapy is a form of therapy which responds to deeper psychological issues which may exist in your life. These are the patterns and experiences that have affected your life and impact how you interact with the world around you. Sometimes these patterns make life’s journey difficult to navigate. Psychotherapy can help you overcome those blocks to successfully travel life’s journey.

The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct. – Carl Jung
Robert on psychotherapy: “I provide psychotherapy from a narrative perspective. This approach to therapy arises out of my belief that human beings are people of story—of stories lived and stories shared. Our life journeys are colored by our experience of family, faith and relationships. These different kinds of experience are interconnected to form the unique story of each person’s life. Narrative therapy offers a manner of therapy which recognizes the significance of your story in your life and harnesses your own inner strength to bring about real change.”
