I offer three types of therapy
1. Counselling: Counselling can be very useful when we have a particular difficulty we want to deal with or when we are reacting to a distressing or stressful event. Even just a few sessions can often be extremely helpful.
2. Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy works in a similar way to counselling, but often involves a more in-depth exploration. For this reason, it’s best suited for deep-seated issues that you might have been struggling with for quite a while.
3. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: CBT looks at how we think about a situation and how this affects the way we feel and act. It can work extremely well if you’re looking for a practical set of “brain apps” to help you with a troubling situation. It is particularly effective for depression, addictions, chronic pain, as well as anger and anxiety issues (worrying, insomnia panic attacks, phobias, PTSD, and OCDs).
I offer standard CBT as it is delivered by the NHS, but I am also trained to integrate into this “3rd wave” CBT models such as Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT; also MBSR and MBRP for Addictive Behaviours), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
Do get in touch either by email or telephone (07804197605) if you would like to find out anything else about me or the kind of therapy I can offer you.
