We all feel the deep longing to become happier, wiser and better human beings, but that sometimes we are overwhelmed by challenges and difficulties; our best intentions can get swamped by echoes of the past, hard choices and difficult circumstances. Good therapy can help you through those hard times and help you build a strong sense of self, one closer to the person you long to be.

    10 Questions with Tim Hill

    • What led you to choose psychotherapy or counselling as a profession?

    • I chose to become a psychotherapist through my own experience of receiving psychotherapy. It was a fascinating process, unlike anything else I had done before, and it changed my life.
    • Which philosophical approaches have influenced your professional/personal development?

    • I have developed my own philosophical approach that combines various elements, such as support, personal responsibility and empathy. I believe that we have the strength to follow our own directions, but often need some support to do this.
    • Which particular aspects of health or the human journey are you interested in?

    • My fascination is with how we form our self, how this process can get off the rails and what we can do about bringing ourselves back together again.
    • What method/s do you use?

    • When working with clients I use empathy to help clients to both better understand themselves and allow the self to gradually re-cohere, but also a way of expressing my care. I feel the unconscious is an important part of who we are, and this approach allows it to play its part in change.
    • When do you think the client will start to feel that progress is being made?

    • In my experience, people often feel a sense of hopefulness that they are finally on the right track after our initial consultation. They often report feeling a little better by the time we start our second session.
    • How has therapy made you a better person?

    • Therapy made it possible for me to be who I am and really love.
    • What do you like most about being a therapist?

    • It is a chance for people to unlock themselves and become the person that they always knew was there.
    • Do you ever have 'bad hair' days?

    • Just like everyone else. However, I know what I need to do to take care of myself and quite quickly restore my equilibrium.
    • What do you think is the most significant problem we face, in the world today?

    • Devaluation and disregard by other people leaves us feeling alone and insignificant.
    • Can you share the name of a book, film, song, event or work of art that inspires you?

    • I find inspiration everywhere, particularly in stories of struggle against adversity and the power of compassion of other people.

    If you're like the many that’ve come to see me, you might be struggling with relationships, self-esteem, anxiety and/or depression. These situations are difficult to live with, and you can be left feeling like you have nowhere to turn. Because finding the right person to help you is so important, I offer a 50 minute free initial consultation to new clients. This gives you plenty of time to let me know what you’re going through and ask me questions. It also lets me explain how I can help you....
