Caring about you is important to me. I am highly motivated in the work that I do with people. I will work with you on whatever issues you choose to bring to therapy.
Most of us know that psychological health is just as important as physical health and that is why I like to carry out this socially valuable and rewarding work. All round health is important to us all, adults, teenagers, children, elderly and society in general. Anxiety and depression are two of the most persistent and debilitating psychological problems in our society today.
I will work with you using counselling and emotion focused therapy skills. Emotion focused therapy is an integrative humanistic therapy supported by research evidence. The therapy comprises of person centred therapy, gestalt therapy, constructivist methods and psychodynamic ideas on relationship attachments. The therapy method involves supporting you, valuing your decisions, and offering therapeutic task interventions on whatever life experiences you wish to bring to therapy.
The therapy is said to be 'marker guided'. This means that a set of researched task interventions are offered on specific points that arise in your therapy session.
The working relationship between you and myself is very important to positive outcomes in therapy, research shows this. Our working relationship takes precedence over almost everything else. For this reason I offer a free initial assessment that will give you the opportunity to ask questions and see if you would like to work with me on your problems. The assessment session will try to address the following questions:
' Can we work together effectively? '
' Can I assist you with your problems? '
' Does my way of working feel that it would be of benefit to you? '
