Terry holds the view that psychotherapy provides an opportunity for us to explore our lives and our experiences, to address challenges such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, isolation and social adjustments, compulsive addictive concerns, and to cultivate personal self-awareness, growth and enhanced well-being. Therapy can be an expedition that provides us with many chances to pause the busy flow of fast-paced living, reconnect with ourselves more authentically, and move towards more engaged and fulfilling practices that support you living your best life.
