Psychological treatment (also known as psychotherapy) is appropriate if you are feeling unhappy, anxious, worried, depressed or fearful. It is a way of addressing personal challenges by talking openly in a confidential environment. It is an opportunity to share your concerns and feelings with a professionally trained therapist who can help you come to your own best solution.
Psychological treatment focuses on a wide range of difficulties, and I will tailor our sessions to meet your personal need by using an integrative/multi modal approach. Together, you and I will determine which mode or method will be more helpful for you, be it CBT, EMDR, mindfulness, psychoeducational or psychodynamic.
The goal of psychotherapy is to help you discover the underlying reasons behind your behaviours, thoughts, feelings and symptoms. With empathy, warmth and honesty, I will help you uncover these underlying messages, bringing awareness to your actions. When the underlying cause is identified and solved, unwanted symptoms are likely to be reduced or disappear entirely.
