Complex Problems

Dr Ilona Singer

YPP specialises in offering therapy for  individuals with long standing complex problems who have suffered a number of trauma events in life. These are likely to include difficult childhood experiences for example:

  •    Neglect
  •    Poverty
  •    Early or difficult  bereavement
  •    Family break up
  •    Health problems (your own or a family member)
  •    Bullying
  •    Sexual / physical / emotional abuse

As an adult you may find yourself  in repeating patterns of chaotic and or  unhappy relationships.  You may even have unhelpful coping skills such as substance misuse, self harm, addictions, avoidance and feelings of shame. You think that your problems are your own fault and will never go away and this feeling sometimes completely overwhelms you.

We will work with you to put the past in perspective and gain hope for the future. Your therapy is likely to be part of a formulation based approach to current life difficulties and focus on learning coping skills for present day living.
