I provide both short and long-term psychotherapy. During the initial assessment session, the client has the opportunity to discuss their reasons for seeking psychological treatment and together with the therapist, the length and type of therapy is agreed.
- Short term therapy focusses on addressing a particular concern or problem. The emphasis is on the here and now and on making changes and implementing strategies to resolve or manage the specific problem more effectively.
- Longer term work involves looking more deeply at underlying patterns and unresolved conflicts in order to find the root of a person’s difficulties. It takes into account past/childhood experience and how this influences the present. It is more useful for individuals who experience ongoing difficulties in a certain area of their lives.
I work with an integrative and person-centred approach, using different therapeutic models depending on the needs of the client. I have training and experience in using psychodynamic psychotherapy and interpersonal therapy and I have further specialist training in CBT and DBT.
