My Approach to Therapy
As you will have gathered, there are many different styles of therapy out there. Some focus on relieving your symptoms, such as cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT), while others, including psychodynamic psychotherapy, delve into the client’s past to help them understand themselves and move forward. I use a blend of the two approaches.
I work with transference and relational language, which lays an emphasis on early childhood development and family dynamics and follow a change-based approach, incorporating experiential techniques, so the client can experience as well as talk about their upsetting thoughts, feelings and memories.
I follow a Professional Code of Practice and try to promote an environment in which diverse backgrounds and experiences are valued, treating the client with respect and dignity.
