The Room Between –It’s about what happens between us

Often, when thinking about our personal stories we may view ourselves from one particular perspective.

We might miss alternatives and exceptions which allow for hope and unexplored potential. As experienced clinical psychologists, we want to make room for alternative ways of viewing your situation and make connections that are personally meaningful so you that you can live, and love, fully.

We are particularly informed by attachment theory and use a trauma informed approach, drawing on our years of experience and training as clinical psychologists. This means that we think that our experiences, resources, and relationships fundamentally affect how we relate to ourselves, our feelings and others.

We take a holistic approach which means that we think that body, mind, environment and emotions are interconnected.

Often we can come into difficulty when we become disconnected from important aspects of ourselves such as from our feelings and relationships and the impact of this on our actions .  This might include seeking out arguments, withdrawing, over-working or comfort eating.  

Frequently our ways of coping have developed because at one point they would have helped us to survive – perhaps offering us ways of managing our pain and distress when we had no other means available.

Sometimes our ways of coping can become problematic
when they start to impact the quality of our lives and lead us to taking actions which are not in line with our values.

We provide support to a diverse range of people

We can all be impacted by the society and culture(s) we live in.  This can affect how we relate to ourselves and others.

For example, how we feel about our bodies, relationship status, or abilities.  We may feel judged, judge ourselves, and perhaps others, in relation to factors such as mental health, fertility, sexual practices, belief systems, lifestyle and ethnicity. Within therapy it may be important for us to attend to the different aspects of your context, and identity, including what you feel able to express and why.

As trained clinical psychologists, we have years’ of experience helping a variety of clients, in many different and unique situations.

We work with individuals, couples, multiples, families and groups. People who live alone or cohabit. We are experienced in working with people who live away from their family and culture of origin.

      We want The Room Between to offer a space where you are seen in context with the different parts of your life and identity respected and viewed as interconnected – it’s never about what’s wrong with us but what’s happened to us.
