I can offer traditional Psychodynamic Therapy and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). Both approaches are talking therapies, but with a different emphasis. The level of CBT provided matches the requirements of therapy offered in the NHS (National Health Service). We will agree on the approach depending on your personal preferences and needs, which can also be integrative by working across models during therapy.
I am specialised in short-term therapy. Short-term therapy can range from as little as 4 sessions up to 40 sessions. The exact length of therapy depends on your individual situation and your presentation, which we will discuss in an initial assessment (1 -2 sessions). The assessment will allow us to get to know each other, look at your expectations regards therapy, answer any questions you may have and agree on the most suitable approach for you. Throughout therapy we will review the progress together and will adjust the length and style of therapy if required.
For those who have commitments at work or home, which would prevent them from travelling every week, online therapy sessions can be arranged.
I have a holistic view of therapy and the human psyche. This means that your spiritual views, religious beliefs and other world views will be taken into consideration as they are forming a part of your self as much as your thoughts and feelings. Therefore, I will also offer you alternative ways of making sense of your self and your challenges you are facing.
I know that choosing the right therapist can be sometimes a challenging task. If you any questions please feel free to contact me.
