What is our theoretical approach?
As an Integrative therapist, I enjoy working eclectically, drawing on different therapeutic approaches such as CBT, Transactional Analysis, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic and Person-Centred approaches. Transactional Analysis is the therapeutic approach that informs my work the most as a therapist. This approach is underpinned by the philosophy that people have intrinsic worth and value, that with the help of therapy they can change unhelpful thinking patterns and ineffective behaviours and habits and find creative solutions and strategies to make positive changes in their lives.
How Does Therapy Work?
Therapy is not a magic cure to all of your problems but will provide you with a warm, supportive and safe space in which you can freely and fully express, explore and clarifying your feelings and thoughts in a relaxed and nonthreatening way.
As your therapist, I will help you to make sense of your present circumstances and encourage you to "unmuddle" and organise your thoughts and feelings, enabling you to gain a clearer and more objective perspective of your life and goals. I may need to work Psychodynamically, incorporating Inner Child Healing work to help you to understand how your past shapes and affects your present condition and the way in which you engage with yourself, others and your world, to help you find healing from the past and develop the life skills to better cope on a daily basis.
In order to move towards your future, I may help you to set realistic goals, make informed choices and explore useful tools and strategies which will help you find ways of coping better. I may encourage you to evaluate and reassess unhelpful behaviours, explore ways you can take positive action and maintain these positive changes in different areas of your life. Ultimately, therapy offers support and encouragement to you as you discover, explore and realise your true, unlimited potential.
Therapy is not just about recovery but discovery - discovering new ways of thinking, coping, responding and of being. It is not about controlling your future, but about empowerment. It is about enabling you to develop the capacity to maintain these changes, to confidently make choices and accept the consequences and in so doing move into your future with a renewed sense of hope and purpose.
