Rita Lally MSc, PGDip Registered Member BACP
I am a BACP certified experienced integrative psychotherapist and counsellor, passionate about helping people resolve emotional and psychological issues. I help clients to identify and overcome difficulties so that they can find peace, grow and flourish.
In my experience the issues most people face are based on troubling thoughts that cause distress and evoke symptoms that compromise their quality of life.
As an integrative practitioner I have researched and worked with various theory's, models and approaches over the years, and have found a holistic therapeutic process that increases the success rate of managing and resolving emotional difficulties. My approach consists of addressing three essential areas; perceptions, awareness and habitual patterns.
It is not always easy to talk about difficulties and to look at issues that cause pain. As your therapist I provide a caring and warm environment that eases the process of personal healing and growth. My practise is underpinned by principles that are based on compassion and a non-judgemental attitude, and work within the BACP ethical framework. I am a strong believer in the fact that when one feels safe to explore, it can open new avenues of discovery.
I provide a calm and confidential space to my clients so that they can talk about issues important to them, and collaboratively work together to enhance awareness and gain insight into the root of their problems. Looking at how my clients perceive themselves, the world around them and their environment can bring clarity to inner conflicts and ideals that are holding them back.
In order for the therapy to be effective it is important to recognise common roadblocks to recovery such as symptoms of anxiety and depression. Such symptoms can cause confusion, impair your ability to be productive, focused, take positive action, and maintain momentum. Practices such as CBT, Mindfulness and NLP have proven to be successful tools in overcoming such symptoms.
I believe in empowering my clients with knowledge and skills that help increase there sense of worth, and help them to manage difficult emotions on a daily basis, and work to overcome these difficulties that may be keeping them stuck, or preventing then from living a more content and happy life.
You are a unique individual as are your experiences and therapy should be unique and specifically tailored to your characteristics and desired outcomes. You can expect a holistic and healing treatment using several theories and therapeutic models such as psychodynamics. cognitive begaviour, attachment , humanistic, experiential, relational and developmental. I choose ones that works best for you.
I understand how daunting therapy can be especially for first timers. I am happy to have a pre-therapy consultation in which you can ask me any questions to ease any worries you may have and establish what you are looking to gain from therapy and how this can be achieved.
A journey of self-discovery can be healing, enlightening, and empowering, so take the steps to a better quality of life. I am dedicated in helping you each step of the way.
