What Is Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy?
I offer psychotherapy and counselling in a collaborative way in which we work together to facilitate your understanding of what may be causing and contributing to your current discontent or difficulties.
Proving a safe, confidential space, I work relationally to help you clarify what may be getting in the way of life being more fulfilling and breaking free from previous patterns of relating that may no longer be beneficial.
Often times our mode of behaviour, beliefs and defenses develop early in life as adaptations to experiences we cannot make sense of at the time. Further life events can modify or confirm these and alter our worldview and our subsequent place in it. It can be helpful in therapy to explore where these beliefs stem from and challenge their value in the present.
I believe all of us can be active in our own self-healing with the capacity to discover solutions to our problems in our own unique time frame. I work to empower clients I work with, helping them to find their inner potential in an interactive and supportive manner.
How Long Will Psychotherapy/Counselling Take?
Short Term Counselling
Short term counselling can be up to twelve sessions in duration, focusing on a few specific concerns that can be addressed in this timeframe. Concerns that lend themselves to short term counselling include workplace stress and anxiety, bullying, exam stress, panic attacks, mild depression and health anxieties.
Long Term Psychotherapy
When issues require a greater depth of exploration, such as unhelpful thoughts, patterns and relationships that repeat themselves, longer-term psychotherapy on a more open-ended basis can be more advantageous.
