Effects of Trauma
As a counselling psychologist I work integratively, meaning that I specialise in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), but also draw on a number of other psychological approaches to therapy that I integrate with CBT, chosen and adapted collaboratively to suit your specific needs. I add ideas, theory and techniques from person-centred therapy, acceptance & commitment (ACT) and compassion-focused therapy, systemic/family, psychoanalytic and schema therapy. This allows me to work flexibly with individuals, couples and families.
I am attachment minded, which means I consider an attachment-focus an important aspect of our work together, as well as the quality of your early attachments. An attachment perspective assumes that basic emotional needs of security and support must be adequately met in order for people to learn and develop, therefore a priority is to provide a secure base for my clients from which they can explore new ways of being.
I also hold a strong relational stance, which to me means being flexible and reflective in my style depending on your needs, and considering the network of relationships into which you are intertwined with others. Underpinning my approach is a strong humanistic ethic which prioritises a deep valuing and respecting of my client's individual way of being. This makes my therapeutic practice collaborative and tailored to your wants and understandings.
