Dr. Kimberley Carter – Psychotherapy & Counselling. Understanding psychotherapy and how it works Psychotherapy is the use of psychological methods, based on regular personal counselling sessions, to help overcome problems that are affecting your life in a negative way. Dr Kimberley Carter has been a professional fully qualified practitioner for many years both in England and now here in Javea. Dr. Carter will help you gain an understanding of how you feel, or how you behave or respond towards others, that will help you make healthier decisions about the way you live your life. Do you ever feel too overwhelmed to deal with your problems? If so, you’re not alone. Dr. Carter works on a one to one basis to help bring to the surface your true feelings so you can experience and understand them. The assumption is that everyone has an unconscious mind, and that feelings are often too painful to be felt and faced. In response we devise defences to protect us from having to acknowledge painful feelings. An example of defences we might use are denial (of a problem or how we behave or feel), or anger, which usually disguises more painful feelings such as hurt and betrayal. What to expect An initial consultation will be arranged by Dr. Carter via email or phone. During this first meeting she will explore what is troubling you, and discuss your expectations of therapy. If you then wish to make a further appointment then this can be arranged. The working contract will also be discussed at this point. Sessions times are at the same time on the same day each week, and each session lasts for fifty minutes for individual therapy or one to one supervision, and sixty minutes for couple therapy. Also offered are Skype sessions for people living further away or abroad. Dr. Kimberley Carter Psychotherapist works from her consultation room in the beautiful town of Javea. Fees The fee for the initial consultation is €70-00, and the session will last 60-70 minutes. Fees for ongoing therapy sessions / supervision will be discussed during the consultation.
