Valdete Kapedani, MBACP Accredited- CBT and Psychodynamic Psychotherapist
I provide short and long term CBT and Psychodynamic therapy. Therapy enables clients to have a deeper understanding of their unconscious motivations. It also enables people to reflect on their emotions before they react and become more aware of their repetitive behaviour and relationship patterns.
I am experienced in helping clients with:
PTSD, Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Loss, Bereavement, Addiction, Anger, Trauma focused, Sexual Abuse and Domestic Abuse, Compassionate Focused Training, Identity, Attachment, Personality Disorder,Borderline Personality, Narcissistic Personality,Gender, Low Self-Esteem, Age, Panic attack, Disability, Phobias, OCD, Relationship Issues & 121 Coaching.
I help my clients to identify with their feelings and behaviour. I help clients sit and process their feelings, emotions and behaviour by providing safe, nonjudgmental, confidential and holding environment.
I enjoy working with my clients. My biggest reward for me is being able to see my clients transition through their difficulties by working collaboratively in achieving their goals.
I also provide:
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
