What We Do In Therapy Sessions
Together we decide which therapeutic approach would benefit you at different stages in your therapy. My role involves a collaboration with you, my aim is to enable you to develop a better understanding of yourself by reflecting upon your difficulties and encouraging you to consider and implement alternative responses to your difficulties.
We identify and try to understand the problem mainly using one or more of the following therapeutic approaches
- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
- Psychodynamic Therapy
- Person Centered Therapy.
We set goals for therapy and actively work towards those goals.
We try to understanding any difficulties that arise in the session and explore its relevance, if any, outside of the session.
We meet regularly and monitor and validate progress in the sessions.
We may set up tasks for you to complete outside of the session that are in line with resistance towards and management of, any unhelpful behaviours and thought processes.
Techniques are used to increase awareness or to enable other choices of thought, feeling or action to increase self-control. This will allow you to better manage discomfort or distress by understanding causes and patterns which impact on your present life.
Together we identify appropriate tools and techniques that may assist you to move beyond any limiting beliefs or negative behavioural patterns.
