I am here to listen, whatever the problem or worry. The therapy I offer covers many areas of mental health and wellbeing, from depression and anxiety, to addiction, PTSD, bereavement and relationship counselling.
There are various approaches to counselling known as ‘modalities’ . My approach is simply you - the client - and your thoughts and feelings in the moment. Our sessions will undoubtedly dip in and out of different modalities as I take a holistic approach. The session will meander like a river, regardless of labels, categories or titles.
Through talking and listening we will work towards getting to the root cause of any issues. You'll be taking time for yourself; much needed time to re-evaluate and reconnect with contentment in your life.
Cognitive behavioral therapy does not prioritise the cause of a problem, but instead deals with the symptoms. For example, we would focus on your anxiety in the here and now and encourage you to rethink any problems in a different way. Negativity can arise from the meanings people give to events as well as the events themselves. Learning techniques and methods to cope with present day challenges and negative thoughts empowers you to move forward.
Person centred therapy helps you to explore the potential within yourself to solve your problems. Here I take more of a listening role, enabling you to unravel and reveal, under your own steam, the solutions you may be seeking.
Psycholanalytical therapy is based on the theory that much of our behaviour stems from our subconscious mind, where events and childhood impressions are stored. Counselling can help you to unlock these thoughts and revisit them to work towards clarity and understanding.
Gestalt therapy emphasises personal responsibility, focusing on your experience in the present moment. The word Gestalt means 'whole'. As such, rather than exploring individual experiences or challenges, we will incorporate your whole being and everything that surrounds you into the therapy.
