Individual therapy

Individual therapy, also known as talk therapy, is a form of psychotherapy that is focused on helping individuals address and overcome mental health challenges. This type of therapy involves meeting with a therapist on a one-on-one basis to discuss the individual’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

One of the key benefits of individual therapy is that it provides a safe and confidential space for individuals to explore their inner experiences. Through the process of therapy, individuals can gain a better understanding of themselves, develop coping strategies for managing difficult emotions, and improve their relationships with others.

Individual therapy can also be effective in helping individuals overcome specific mental health challenges, such as anxiety, depression, trauma, and addiction. By working with a trained therapist, individuals can develop personalized treatment plans that are tailored to their unique needs and goals.

Overall, individual therapy is a powerful tool for promoting mental health and wellbeing. It provides individuals with a safe and supportive environment to explore their thoughts and emotions, develop new skills, and work towards achieving their goals.

I am passionate about working with couples, offering you a rich opportunity to create healthy bonds, understand and communicate your needs, and look at your relationships from a new perspective.

Family therapy

Family therapy is a type of psychotherapy that aims to improve communication and resolve conflicts within a family system. It involves working with all members of the family to identify and address issues that may be causing stress, tension, or dysfunction. Family therapy can help to improve relationships between family members, build trust, and promote healthy communication patterns.
Family therapy may involve a range of techniques and approaches, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and systemic therapy. The therapist will work collaboratively with the family to set goals and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs.
Some common issues that may be addressed in family therapy include marital conflict, parent-child conflicts, blended family challenges, communication problems, and behavioral issues in children. The therapy sessions may be held individually or in a group setting, depending on the needs of the family.
Overall, family therapy can be a powerful tool for promoting positive change and improving relationships within families. By addressing underlying issues and building stronger connections between family members, it can help to create a healthier and happier home environment for everyone involved.

Family therapy

Family therapy is a type of treatment designed to help with issues that specifically affect families’ mental health and functioning. It can help individual family members build stronger relationships, improve communication, and manage conflicts within the family. By improving how family members interact and relate to one another, family therapy can create change in close relationships.
Some of the primary goals of family therapy are to create a better home environment, solve family issues, and understand the unique issues that a family might face.
I have an MSc in systemic/ family and couples therapy. Family therapy looks to help members of a family understand each other better, resolve conflicts and change negative behaviours. It is appropriate for all ages and can even be helpful for individuals.
Family therapy gives families the oppertunity to communicate and explore their feelings in a safe, non- judgemental environment. Working alongside a therapist, families can talk about differences and difficluties within their relationships with the aim of improving communication and finding a way forward, together.
This approach aims to be inclusive and considerate of every member of the family, keeping away from any sense of ‘ganging up’. It looks to recognise an individual’s strengths and resources and build on these within sessions and work with members of the family in a collaborative way. Family therapists will invite engagement and be sensitive to the diverse nature of family relationships, cultures and beliefs.
Family Therapy can help when there is conflict between siblings, or when parents and children are going through a divorce or separation. Forming a new family is a challenge parents may need support to help everyone settle. Or maybe your found family is looking to implement some new rituals and wants a bit of guidance.
You can expect Family Therapy to help you to build stronger relationships between every member of the family and help you to work together as a team to create positive changes.

Common examples of how family therapy can help Include:

Child and Adolescent Therapy/Therplay Practitoner

Children and adolescents with severe and long-lasting mental health problems may respond to people and situations in ways that they do not understand and cannot control. Their emotions can be extreme and are often communicated through their behaviour and in problematic relationships. Such difficulties often extend to relationships with services and professionals. This can prevent these children from benefiting from the care and opportunities that are available to them.
I work with children, adolescents and/or with their parent(s) with difficulties including anxiety, depression, behaviour, attachment difficulties and eating problems, developmental issues and other difficulties. I have special interest in self-harm, suicidal ideation and childhood trauma.
If you are a parent or carer who has concerns about the emotional well-being of your child or your adolescent, I can work with your child individually, with parents individually and or both together.

Child therapy/Theraplay Practitoner

Child therapy, also known as play therapy, is a form of psychotherapy that is designed specifically for children. This type of therapy involves using play and other expressive techniques to help children explore their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in a safe and supportive environment.

One of the key benefits of child therapy is that it can help children who are struggling with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, behavioral problems, and social difficulties. By using play and other creative activities, child therapists can help children express themselves in ways that may be difficult to put into words.

Child therapy can also be effective in helping children build coping skills and resilience, as they learn to better manage their emotions and navigate challenging situations. Additionally, child therapy can help improve relationships between children and their families, as therapists often involve parents or caregivers in the therapy process.

Overall, child therapy is a valuable tool for helping children develop the skills and strategies they need to thrive in life. It provides a safe and supportive environment for children to explore their thoughts and feelings, and can help them build confidence, resilience, and emotional intelligence.

Truma therapy/EMDR therapy

I am an EMDR therapist who has been trained in advanced EMDR, advanced child and adolescent EMDR, and attachment EMDR. I work with children, adolescents, adults and couples struggling with a wide range of difficulties. EMDR (Eye movement Desensitisation Reprocessing) is a targeted and focused therapy that identifies the root cause of issues and dismantles the blocks that keep people stuck in pain.
EMDR is effective in the recovery of addictions, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), complex PTSD, phobias, anxiety, phobias, early attachment and relationship trauma as we all as a number of other mental health concerns.
It involves using side to side eye movements combined with talk therapy in a specific and structured format. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing allows people to heal from disturbing life experiences and trauma in a similar way the body is able to heal from physical injuries. According to numerous repeated studies, EMDR therapy provides you with the benefits of therapy that previously took much longer to experience. EMDR helps you process the negative images, emotions, beliefs and body sensations associated with traumatic memories that seem to be stuck. These can contribute to a range of mental health problems. EMDR helps you to see things from a different perspective and relieves the symptoms that you were suffering.

EMDR is an evidence based therapy endorsed by WHO, NHS and NICE.

Non-Violent Resistance (NVR)

NVR stands for Non-Violent Resistance. It is an approach with its roots in the civil rights movement, which has been developed to address children and young peoples violent or self-destructive behaviours.
Sessions are with parents only and the advantage of this is that the approach does not need the child or young person to want to address their behaviour for work to begin. Work might begin with an extensive exploration of escalation patterns within the home and also how ‘present’ the parents are to their child. In NVR, presence refers not only to parents’ physical presence but also their presence in their child’s mind. Most parents seek to foster certain morals, beliefs and values into their children by teaching them what is right and wrong and how to behave appropriately. When there is a high level of violence or aggression in the family home, parental presence can be lost meaning, the parents influence is not strong enough to help their children behave well.
NVR seeks to create changes in the parent-child relationship such that there is a reduction in violent or destructive behaviours. Whilst there may be specific goals (e.g. ‘to stop hitting your brother’), the method can also bring about change at a deeper level, for example, a shift in the child or young person’s inner world such that beliefs about the acceptability of violence begin to change. Other changes might be the young person feeling more able to compromise and becoming aware that, due to the persistent non- violent stance of his or her parents, reacting violently or oppressively towards family members becomes literally impossible. Change is also sought for parents – the development of more confidence, less isolation, and an improvement in the ability to connect with empathic feelings for their child.
