There are different reasons why psychotherapy could help you. You could be experiencing depression, low-mood, different types of anxiety, difficulties in relationship or break-up, sexual abuse, bereavement or any other emotional difficulties. You may be experiencing panic, low self-esteem, work-related stress, health anxiety, social anxiety, having obsessive thoughts, behaviour and feelings, OCD, experienced trauma, different types of phobias and other emotional distress that are challenging to live with.
In our work together, I use a range of evidence-based psychological therapies in providing brief and long-term psychotherapy. In a joint effort with you, and through a holistic method and utilising different approaches, I will attempt to form a suitable treatment method and focus for our work together. This would be a collaborative work.
I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which is based on the notion that thoughts, emotions and behaviours are all linked together and influence one another.
In our work together, we will explore the root causes of your difficulties and how they have influenced your thoughts, behaviour and feelings.
Capturing these influences will allow us to work together, make sense of the difficulties you have been experiencing and challenging them through various techniques.
I also practise both brief and long-term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy which is a form of talking therapy.
In this approach, we will work together to explore, understand and work through how past experiences have influenced current feelings and behaviours and how these affect your relationships.
I practice Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) which aims to help you understand the connection between presenting symptoms and what is happening in your relationships through identifying a core repetitive pattern of relating that can be traced back to childhood.
Once this pattern is identified, it will be used to make sense of difficulties in relationships in the here-and-now that contribute to psychological stress.
People come to me for help a wide range of issues. Here are a few of the more common difficulties that can be supported through psychotherapy:
Problems with confidence or self-esteem
Problems with addiction
Grief, loss or bereavement
Work or retirement
Family or school life
