I use a variety of therapeutic approaches to help you find a way forward. The first session is simply a conversation where I get to know you and what is troubling you. From there we discuss a way forward and together determine how to structure your sessions taking into account your schedule and your needs. Your sessions are designed to give you exercises and tools that you can apply in your daily life that allows you to measure your ongoing progress.
Some such approaches are CBT-Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, ACT- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness based therapies, EMDR and Psychotherapy to name a few.
EMDR allows you to process the traumatic memories that are frozen in your mind and affect the way in which you relate to the world around you as well as the relationships in your life. This process can work for PTSD, bullying, phobias, and anxieties as well as traumatic relationships.
All approaches are integrative and are designed to fit you the client and meet your unique needs. The following are some of the symptoms that you may be experiencing that this type of therapy can address:
- Depression- feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, irrational worrying and fear of bad things happening.
- Anxiety – irritability, fatigue, panic attacks
- Phobias – out of proportion fear that is limiting and causes distress, anxiety and avoidance of situations, people or objects
- PTSD – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – flash backs, distress and intrusive memories
The British National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (N.I.C.E.) recommends Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to treat Depression and severe to moderate anxiety
