What to expect
Psychological therapy is all about you feeling content with your life and meeting your goals.
By forming a trusting relationship it is important to provide a space for you to explore your struggles in a supportive, safe and confidential environment. What you can expect is both of us working together to develop a shared understanding of your concerns, having a clinical assessment at the outset of our meeting. Once the assessment is complete, we can discuss and agree on a therapy plan from a range of therapeutic options to meet your needs.
A range of therapeutic approaches we can discuss to help you on this journey:
- Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy
- Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
- Dialectic Behaviour Therapy
- Emotionally Focussed Therapy
- Family Therapy modalities
- Brief and Solution-Focused therapies
- Schema Focussed Therapy
- Family Based Treatment (FBT) for adolescents experiencing anorexia
- Modalities for children: Play Therapy, parent-child relationship interventions and principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)
Individual therapy – for adults, adolescents and children using a range of approaches.
Couple therapy – particularly when couples get caught up in the same interaction and emotional patterns that may leave them dissatisfied and unhappy. We will work through the painful patterns to re-establish and deepen a loving and secure connection. An attachment based approach called Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT) is used for relationship based work.
Family therapy – When everyone is affected by the situation, it makes sense to include the family to improve communication and emotional support. The parents are always included in the treatment of their child to provide the ongoing support.
Therapies for eating disorders – Specifically anorexia, bulimia and binge eating patterns when extreme emotions, attitudes and behaviour surrounding weight, body image and food are present. Family Based Treatment (FBT) is available for the family when the adolescent presents with anorexia.
