Assessments and Therapy

Assessments& Therapy

It is common for people to become stuck, overwhelmed or dissatisfied with aspects of their lives or relationships. At these times it can be beneficial to talk through what your struggling with and how you would like it to be different with a trained professional.

I can help you to explore how your past experiences may relate to your current difficulties, how your difficulties are being maintained and support you to make lasting change in the areas important to you.

I draw on a variety of different therapeutic techniques and evidence-based models depending on the difficulties you would like help with.

These include

·       Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

·       EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing)

·       Acceptance and Commitment Therapy,

·       Compassion Focussed Therapy,

·       Psychosexual Therapy.

2. | Assessment

We will arrange a time to meet face to face and discuss in more detail what you are struggling with and what you would like to work on.

The assessment process usually takes 1 to 2 sessions depending on the nature of your difficulties.

Following this we will agree some initial goals for therapy, that we can review regularly to check we are on the right track.

3. | Therapy Sessions

We will plan a course of sessions together to work through your difficulties and help get you get back on track.

The number and frequency of sessions can be flexible, depending on what you would like to work on and your goals for therapy. Together we will plan things you can do between sessions to help maximise your progress.

When you feel back on track, it can be helpful to plan a booster session(s) to help you stay on track.

1. | Consultation

I will arrange a convenient time to speak with you in order to get a broad sense of what you would like help with. This consultation is free.

If I am not able to offer you help at this time, I will endeavour to signpost you on to alternative services.
