I use evidence-based therapy, but work integratively with the knowledge that 'one size does not fit all'. I draw from the following therapies: cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), schema therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness-based therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), and is guided by attachment theory and psychodynamic theory.
I am open to working with clients in a short, medium and long-term capacity, depending on their individual needs
When you arrive please take a seat in our waiting room. Our psychologists appreciate that your time is valuable and do their best to keep to time, however, occasionally this is not possible and your patience is appreciated. Your therapist will then take you into a consulting room and will review the consent form attached. The initial appointment will run for approximately one hour. The session will involve a detailed assessment of your situation and you will be given the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. It is best to be as open and honest about your problems as possible, however, if you find it too difficult to talk about an issue, please indicate this and we will leave it for the time being. At the end of the session the therapist will give you an indication of what therapy may involve and approximately how many sessions it might take.
'I think all kinds of meanings in life transcend your self. They're linked to other generations of people around us, to our children and our family. We're passing on something of ourselves to others. I feel that's what makes our life full of meaning.' Irvin D. Yalom
