Meriel Strang Steel Psychotherapy MBACP (Msc/PGDip)
I’m a fully qualified therapist with experience in working successfully with a very varied client group:
Depression ~ Anxiety ~ Panic Attacks ~ Low self-confidence ~ Anger ~ PTSD Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) ~ Bulimia & Anorexia ~ Trauma ~ Addiction
When working with clients, I believe that offering a warm, accepting approach free of judgement creates the ideal foundation for good therapeutic work. I believe each client is unique and therefore cannot be pigeon-holed into fitting any one model of therapy. Therefore, I create a tailored treatment plan collaboratively with each client. In addition to exploring and, in turn, gaining a clearer understanding of the emotional and psychological challenges that my clients are experiencing, I also introduce practical steps to help empower them to facilitate change.
In addition to this, I’ve always been driven by a desire to promote positive change, and in more recent years have become particularly interested in a field of study called Neuroplasticity, and specifically, a method called Super Able Mind.
What is Neuroplasticity?
Our brain has a unique ability to learn and unlearn, for example it has the ability to unlearn negative behaviours, thought patterns and responses and learn new ones in their place. We can train or re-wire our brain to change its structure and teach it to function in different ways.
What is Super Able Mind?
The Super Able Mind method has been developed using all of the principles of Neuroplasticity, packaging them into a method that is simple and effective for all ages. The method is taught as a course over a period of 12/16 weeks. I have done a separate training in this method and have been teaching it with a keen focus on school children and young adults, with incredible results. The responses have been heartwarming and I believe the tools these children and adults are given through the process of working together will be tools that will help them navigate life at large.
