About me and my therapy practiceAlthough my background is informed by Psychodynamic theory, I do not have just one way of working. My focus will be on the relationship we develop in the room and how previous relationships have shaped and affected you. I also like to work creatively – by utilising music, art, writing and dreams – as it will offer you different ways to express yourself when talking is too difficult or just not the right way to make yourself heard.
I also offer online counselling if you are unable to access face to face counselling or you feel more comfortable expressing yourself in writing.
Do you feel stuck and find yourself unable to break a pattern? Are you struggling with anxieties or negative thoughts? Would you like to learn to cope with difficult or challenging relationships?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a form of counselling that will help you reduce stress in your life and restructure the way you think, which will, in turn, change the way you feel. It is based on the theory that it is not just the challenging moments we experience in our lives that cause the issue, but also the meaning we give to these events. CBT will have a positive impact on your well-being, as it helps you differentiate helpful from unhelpful behaviours and teaches you new and more beneficial ways of coping. You will develop a more positive way of thinking, learn how to set attainable goals, stop taking the blame for everything and find new ways to face your fears rather than to avoid them.
If you would rather focus on the here and now and are looking for a solution-focused way of counselling, I am happy to provide you with the necessary CBT tools. Together, we will identify a specific goal you would like to achieve by the end of therapy which will usually last between 12-20 sessions, depending on your presenting problem.
