Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy usually takes a longer term approach and looks at creating lasting change in ourselves.

 

We work together to look at how past events may be affecting things in your life today. Whereas counselling uses the tools available to us today, to deal with current issues, psychotherapy looks deeper into our past. We look at the messages we received growing up and how they impact on us today. This can change the way we think and feel about ourselves and the way we behave, leading to a sense of inner peace and freedom.

 

If you decide that this might be the approach for you, we would see each other on a weekly basis for an unlimited amount of sessions. 

 

Psychotherapy can be for individuals, couples or groups.

 

Individuals are seen face to face or via Vsee (a Skype equivalent which is medically approved)

 

Couples and groups are seen for face to face sessions only.

Counselling

Counselling can be slightly shorter term compared to psychotherapy.

 

There are many similarities with psychotherapy, however the focus may be on a particular issue you are currently experiencing.

 

This could be a bereavement, a relationship break up, an employment issue or simply a need to look at current areas of your life which are bothering you.

 

If you decide this might be the approach for you, we would see each other on a weekly basis working together for a minimum of 12 sessions.

 

Counselling is suitable for individuals, couples and groups.

 

Individuals are seen face to face or via Vsee (a Skype equivalent which is medically approved).

 

Couples and groups are seen for face to face sessions only.

Coaching

Coaching differs from psychotherapy and counselling, in that it tends to be solution focussed and goal orientated.

 

We would work together to discover the goals you would like to achieve, unpick the barriers which might be in the way and work towards achieving those goals.

 

Coaching can be an extremely effective process for achieving what we want, particularly in the work place or personal goals.

 

It can also be very helpful for young people in an academic setting.

 

Coaching can be offered to individuals, or groups working towards a common goal.

 

Individuals can access this support via face to face sessions or by Vsee (a Skype equivalent which is medically approved)

 

Groups are seen for face to face sessions only.
