How I Work
I practise Integrative Therapy, which is a progressive form of psychotherapy that combines different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the specific needs of the individual client. It is a pragmatic, solution-based approach, leaning on diverse psychological theories in order to get the best, and speediest, results. I like to bring a holistic approach to the process, not only examining the issues presenting but rather looking deeper into the whole person to the root cause in order to reach deeper, long-lasting results.
The exact method is tailored to each specific client but some of the areas we might cover include developing self-awareness, authenticity, responsibility, as well as emotional maturity and stability to gain a more balanced perspective. We could examine topics such as conditions of worth, unfinished business, negative automatic thoughts and cognitive flexibility, and delve into defence mechanisms like the fight or flight reflex, denial, projection, avoidance and even explore self-sabotage. We will look into how we often see our present life through the prism of past pain.
