Frequently Asked Questions

  • Person Centred Therapy
    There are three basic principles; ‘Congruence’ – being genuine and authentic, ‘Unconditional Positive Regard’ – deep and genuine care, an attitude of ‘I’ll accept you as you are’, and ‘Empathy’ – understanding your feelings and experience in the here and now.
  • Narrative Therapy
    Narrative therapy seeks to help you understand you are the author of your story. It seeks to help you look at your issues and you have contributed to the them, and how you can re-author your story in a different way to see and live your future differently. It is a collaborative approach where I do not view myself as the expert but believe that you have the ability to change your story.
  • Creative Approaches
    Sometimes words cannot fully express the way you want to tell your story. I offer you a variety of creative ways of helping you bring your story and it’s meaning to life, such as pictures, toys, drawing, writing and story telling, to help us both gain a better understanding. You are also welcome to bring your own creative ideas into your sessions.
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
    This approach looks at how your thoughts, feelings, physical symptoms and behaviour relate to one another.
  • Brief Solution Focussed Therapy
    This approach is more goal orientated and focuses on your desire to change. I will ask you questions to help you look at the strengths and resources you already have to achieve your goals.
  • Internal Family Systems: Level 1 Trained
    Have you ever said, “A part of me wants to do this, but another part of me wants to do that?” In conjunction with creative ways of working, I offer you a space to explore these ‘parts.’
  • Christian Approaches
    For those with a Christian faith and wish to integrate a Christian approach to their therapy, I seek to understand your Christian experience and work with you to understand how the spiritual, physical, emotional, behavioural and volitional sides of you relate together. I draw aspects of this approach from the CWR Integrative Model of Christian Counselling.
