Approach and Therapies

 

Following our initial consultation, together we will decide what we are going to work on and formulate a treatment plan. We will work using one or more of the approaches below:

CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) is an evidence based approach and is recommended by NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) to treat Anxiety Disorders which encompass OCD, Phobias, Separation Anxiety, GAD, Panic, PTSD, Health Anxiety and Social Anxiety and Depression.

Counselling can be helpful in exploring you, and your life and what might be getting in the way of it being more enjoyable and pleasurable.

Psychotherapy is where we explore one’s early years and this allow us to be able to recognise patterns of behaviours and emotional reactions we have learned but which may no longer be useful to you today.

In my experience, I have found that it is often a blend of all three of these approaches and therapies that allows the therapeutic process to be most effective and ultimately enable change to occur.

Success When Working With Adults

When adults come for therapy, they have recognised that they have a problem or are experiencing some difficulty in an area of their life and are ready to get help and take responsibility for making changes.

Not all companies provide EAP or PMI to employees, yet most companies do have employees experiencing anxiety, depression or some mental health issue. I can offer treatment to your employees without long waits meaning they get the help they need quickly.
