About me and my therapy practice

COACHING / CBT SERVICE

Focussed sessions to analyse addictive behaviours.  Looking at the reasons we develop unhelpful patterns of behaviour and what it means to each individual.  Gentle support to help unpick the reasons and causes of each behaviour and finding creative ways to select a more helpful pattern of behaviour.  We will use Anchoring Meditation to imbed the new pathway, which will avoid any negative patterns and harmful behaviours.

Practice description

 COACHING / CBT SERVICE

6 Session block of therapy to imbed new helpful behaviours which will be replacing old, harmful and unhelpful patterns.  The unhelpful behaviour - drinking too much alcohol, drug taking, smoking, self-harm, maintaining toxic relationships etc. - is often initially something which helps to soothe us from some other pain.        There will be some time spent looking at the source reasons of pain and understanding what choices have been made.  The focus of these 6 sessions will solely be to create a new helpful way of managing change and limiting self harm.

My first session

A contract will be sent to you once you confirm your first appointment and payment should be made before the first session takes place.  

In the first session I will take brief details, name (including what you like to be called), address, details of medication and a look at risk factors.  We will set up future dates in advance if you wish, or we can decide each week when the next appointment will be. 

The rest of the first session will be open for you to talk about what you need to work on and to change in your life.    There may also be emotional issues related to your unhelpful behaviours which you wish to discuss in a first session.   You will have the opportunity to explore what is most important for you to deal with first.  Whilst we can also spend some time looking at techniques to support your emotional needs, the focus of CBT / Coaching work is very directive and focused on recovering from addictive behaviours.

You may have questions about therapy that you need to ask.
