Life is always a journey of ups and downs, and sometimes we may need a little extra help to get through a difficult time, or to tackle a behaviour we’d like to change.
Using the most up-to-date psychotherapeutic understanding and techniques, we help clients move forward with their lives as swiftly and effectively as possible. For most clients, a very few sessions – often between four and six but sometimes even just one or two – are enough to allow them to make significant changes although obviously every situation is different, especially in more complex cases.
There is no commitment to a ‘course’ of treatment, and you will decide together at the end of each individual session whether you need to book another – so contact us today with any questions that you may have or to make a no-obligation initial appointment.
People are often apprehensive about therapy as they feel it may be a very painful and lengthy process, where they are encouraged to talk repeatedly about difficult feelings or events – or even to dig up memories that they would prefer not to have to revisit. We don’t work in that way because the latest research shows that this is not the best way to help people move forward.
Having built a really clear understanding of what has brought you to seek help and your goals for recovery, we will then work out together the best way in which to bring about the changes that you would like to implement. We will help you to use your resources and skill sets to gain confidence in moving forward; if troubled by traumatic past events we will help you to leave them where they belong, in the past; we will teach you tools and techniques that give you back control over strong emotional responses and that allow you to think clearly and make good decisions regarding the shape of your future. Our over-riding aim is to help you to leave each session feeling more hopeful and to begin to feel better as quickly as possible.
There are many conditions with which we are asked to help but these are some of the most common:
