Human connection is the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard and valued
Dr Brene Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection
We are wired for connection as human beings. When that connection gets damaged or broken we feel hurt, our bodies hurt and we hurt others. That disconnection can be experienced differently by each of us- for some it’s loneliness, for others it’s relationships breaking down, others low mood or mood swings. Some may experience anxiety, for others it metastasises and we experience it in our bodies.
Psychotherapy & counselling offers you an opportunity to build meaningful and intentional connections- with your own emotional world and felt experience, your body and your thinking. In turn, this facilitates you being able to connect with others and manage specific challenges in your life differently. It allows you to be more intentional about how you want to show up in your own world.
My name is E-J, and welcome to the website for E-J Psychotherapy & Counselling.
I have always been deeply interested and curious about people, particularly how and why we go about making relationships (with ourselves and others) in order to feel connected and to belong. Outside of my professional life, I love running and movement. I am also a classically trained musician and singer. One of the most ordinary moments in my day that makes my heart happy is my first sip of coffee in the morning after I’ve completed a run or workout. It signals the start of the working day and allows me to mindfully appreciate being alive and in the here and now.
