Talk Therapy

CBT

 

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.

 

All approaches are integrative and are designed to fit you the client and meet your unique needs.  As different parts of you show up in therapy, I then draw from varied modalities to support you.  Some such approaches are ACT- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness based therapies, CBT-Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, EMDR and Transpersonal Psychotherapy to name a few. The following are some of the symptoms that you may be experiencing that this type of talk 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

In addition to a purely psychological approach, I also work on a transpersonal and spiritual level.
