  • What is psychotherapy and who is it for?
    Psychotherapy is an opportunity to speak to a compassionate, objective, and trained professional about a specific problem or multiple issues. It is a collaborative and safe place for you to understand how the past has influenced your current behaviours and allows you to move forward in freedom to be able to live the life you truly want to live.
  • How long does therapy take?
    The length of time in therapy varies from one person to another and depends on your individual circumstances and history and the goals you have determined with your therapist. Some wounds need more time to heal than others however you are the one in control and we work at helping you to heal as quickly as possible.
  • What is trauma?
    Trauma is the lasting emotional response that often results from living through a distressing event. Experiencing a traumatic event can harm a person's sense of safety, sense of self, and ability to regulate emotions and navigate relationships.
  • Are there different types of therapy?
    Yes, we all use various types of therapies that we have specialised in and that resonate with us as therapists. We use an integrative approach whereby we combine some of them depending on what we feel would be most helpful for you. Here are a few that we use: ACT - Acceptance and Commitment Therapy- is a mindfulness behavioural therapy where clients learn to accept their inner thoughts and feelings without suppressing them. This allows a client to face their problems head on while employing methods to solve them. CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy- a type of therapy that addresses how thoughts affect emotions and behaviour. It is often used with depression and anxiety DBT - Dialectical Behavioural Therapy- an evidence-based model of therapy that helps clients learn new skills and strategies to live a better life. It teaches mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness. It is the best treatment for BPD (borderline personality disorder) EFT - Emotionally Focused Therapy- is a form of short-term therapy designed to improve couple relationships by rekindling the physical and emotional bond that can get sacrificed in relationships and cause alienation. With the guidance of a therapist, the couple is led to discover the unmet need for closeness that lies under their anger or alienation. EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing- was initially developed in 1987 by Francine Shapiro for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is a structured therapy that encourages the client to briefly focus on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation. It is intended to change the way that the memory is stored in the brain thus reducing and eliminating the problematic symptoms. After a session, the images, sounds and feelings are no longer re-lived when the event is brought to mind. IFS -Internal Family Systems- is a form of therapy that focuses on a client’s internal “parts” and “self”. When a person is acting out of their true self that is the person that you see. However, if there has been trauma or something to disturb that sense of Self we have what are called protectors that take over the Self such as anger, anxiety, confusion, numbness or depression. The goal of IFS is to help guide the Self back to having the leadership role by healing the wounded parts that are causing so much pain. Narrative Therapy - is a unique therapy whereby you are guided to see your story or experiences through a positive lens while externalising your problems. It allows you to work on self-compassion and brings objectivity to conflict. SFT- Solution Focused Therapy- is a short-term therapy that focuses on the present and future circumstances and goals rather than past experiences. It helps clients build solutions.
