About Counselling

Before the commencement of treatment, a free of charge consultation/assessment would be required to discuss treatment options and communication medium that you feel comfortable with.
My approach is integrative combining the three main therapeutic models of therapy which are Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): that offers flexibility to work with the individuality of the person.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy seeks to understand how deep-rooted aspects of the past can have an impact on present day-to-day life and lead to recurring problems that cause suffering and distress. The process is a collaborative one in which the relationship between the client and the therapist is of great importance in order for the client to gain a deeper understanding of themselves, their relationships with others, and in this way develop a greater self-awareness and insight so that change can be achieved.

Humanistic therapy: This approach is based on the recognition that we all have an innate need to be known, understood and to feel accepted. A relationship of trust, acceptance and positive regard between the therapist and the individual is central to humanistic therapy, which aims towards greater achievement of potential and self-fulfillment, giving life more personal meaning and often allowing for individual self-expression and creativity.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) focuses on how your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes that affect your feelings and behaviour. People can get caught up in a pattern of negative thinking that can have a devastating impact on mental wellbeing. This form of therapy is widely used within the NHS and helps the individual challenge and change self defeating thoughts and behaviours, thus improving the mental wellbeing/quality of life.
