I believe everyone needs a good listening to.
Sometimes we are in a crisis, or wanting to change a bad habit or addiction, or simply needing to make a decision. Sometimes we are just feeling down, or lost, worried or can’t sleep. And sometimes it’s all about relationships, love, work, children, friendships – life.
I am an experienced, trained integrated humanistic psychotherapist who believes being listened to, understood and supported can help you to bring about important changes in your life. I believe therapy can really help you to understand and like yourself, in fact, to love yourself and become your true self. It can enable you to get on track and make the most of your life, relationships and opportunities.
Psychotherapy with Corinne Sweet
I have been working as a counsellor, holistic life coach and psychotherapist for many years. I believe the current challenges we are facing in our society and culture, and the speed we are living at, is making is more important than ever to find time and space to think and deal with our feelings. Therapy gives you time to be with yourself, to work things out, process emotions, make decisions, in the presence of someone who is on your side and who doesn’t criticise or judge.
I have been working with people all my adult life and have benefitted hugely from my own experience of therapy. I am a campaigner, a teacher and lecturer, a broadcaster, am also a writer: I’ve written several self-help books (see below) and screenplays/dramas. I am a singer and media performer (classical concerts, TV and Radio). I also write biographies as a ‘Ghostwriter’. I run therapy workshops based on my books (see below).
Areas I work with:
I can offer help with anything you bring, but in particular I have experience with:
- Everyday addiction (all sorts).
- Stress, separation and divorce, parenting (and deciding whether to have a child).
- I also work on money and relationships, as well as relationship issues including sex and sexuality.
- I can offer CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Mindfulness.
