Valdete Kapedani MBACP Accredited
I provide short and long term Psychodynamic/CBT therapy. Therapy enables clients to have a deeper understanding of their unconscious motivations.
This helps clients understand their unconscious repetitive patterns which empowers them not to repeat their maladaptive behaviours in relationships, family/friends, at work or others.
Therapy enables people to reflect on their emotions before they react and become more aware of their repetitive behavior and relationship patterns.
I work with individuals who present with anxiety, stress, depression, loss, bereavement, addiction, anger, trauma, childhood, abuse, identity issues, gender, low self-esteem, confidence, age, panic, disability, phobias, OCD, PTSD and relationship issues.
I help my clients to identify their feelings and put their feelings into words, feelings that are troubling or threatening to them, and feelings that clients may not recognise or acknowledge by providing a safe, confidential, secure, safe, caring and non-judgmental space within our therapeutic relationship.
I enjoy working with my clients, and the biggest reward for me is being able to help my clients get through their past and present difficulties they are facing by working safely and collaboratively.
Online sessions offer more choices and greater flexibility in how one gets help.
It may motivate some people to take that first step into seeking help.
It, sometimes, may be the only way a person is willing to reach out for help.
Some people are uncomfortable opening up to a health professional face-to-face; they prefer the anonymity of online assistance.
What are the benefits of a Skype/FaceTime session?
FaceTime or Skype is a quicker way of being able to get therapy as well as being more convenient due to our busy lives and other commitments. Sessions last for an hour and can be provided at very short notice. While it depends on the clients' nature, most of my clients prefer FaceTime sessions as they are more convenient due to their other commitments. The ability to book sessions at short notice is also very popular, especially if you need to have therapy very soon.
What can I expect from my online session?
Sessions will be provided in confidential environment and clients will be provided with care and support all throughout.
Is an online session as effective as a face to face session?
Online therapy has been found to be as effective in reducing symptoms as therapy delivered face-to-face by a clinician. Evidence is particularly strong that anxiety, stress and depression can be treated online.
Research suggests that online therapy, including via email and video conferencing, can result in client satisfaction with both the therapy and the quality of their relationship with the therapist that is similar to levels of satisfaction with face-to-face therapy
