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).
For a more in-depth synopsis of my integrative therapeutic approach, please have a look at the page How I Work.
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.
