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 behavioural 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.
