We work collaboratively with our clients to develop a shared understanding of current difficulties and how they are impacting on one’s life.
Therapy involves reducing distress by exploring the links between our experiences and the sense we make of them. Together, we identify coping strategies and helpful ways of moving forward.
We do this by drawing on a number of therapeutic models including cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), compassion focused therapy, trauma-focused CBT and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR). These models have a strong evidence base for their effectiveness in reducing distress.
Being in a relationship can be an immensely fulfilling experience, but can also bring many challenges. People struggle with many aspects of their relationships including communicating with each other, trust, and intimacy. Therapy is a way to make sense of what is going on for you both and help negotiate the future.
Families face many challenges right across the generations and sometimes they need help to get back on track. We do this by working with the family to understand their way of communicating, and identify their strengths.
In all our therapies we believe that building compassion for the self and others is a key component of well-being.
