In Empathy

• Depression can lead the way to profound insight.

• Addictions can show us what we really need.

• A breakdown, a doorway to enlightenment. 

⦁ Anxiety a key to the past.

Romany Smith MBACP (accredited). Founder of In Empathy.
I am an experienced therapist and empathy specialist. I conducted my research dissertation on empathy learning and I have continued to concern myself with its practice and application  and to make empathy the core of my therapeutic practice. I am trained in Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapies, Existential and Psychodynamic therapies as well as a number of specialised areas of trauma and life coaching.  I work integratively with an emphasis on the core conditions of Carl Rogers’ Person Centred Theory of Psychotherapy, ‘Empathy, Congruence and Unconditional Positive Regard’ toward my

clients. After a, long career in the performing arts, and also having worked in outreach and welfare with street homeless, I realised the need many people have for a deeper level of care; which I felt I was able to provide and I decided to retrain as a psychotherapist.

It is with respect to the ever growing mountain of research which attests to the efficacy of a client, therapist relationship, when founded on empathy as holding the power to heal; that I practice as an empathic therapist.

“It is through others that we become ourselves.”
Lev S. Voygotsky

When life is a struggle, it may feel that our efforts lead us no where and it is difficult to confide in those around us, it can feel very lonely and as though we may never escape our burdens. It is then that it is time to ask for help!
If you are visiting this website there is a good chance that you have been thinking for some time about contacting a counsellor. This first step can take months or even years and is the hardest part, but you have done it, taking the next step will be easier.  

When the burden becomes too much or has been too much for too long? It is time to turn to a therapist for help? 
When you need someone to listen, when you need compassion and understanding, when you need someone in your corner.
