I am trained in delivering many different forms of psychotherapy and coaching. Whether you are looking for a ‘quick fix’, some coping techniques to get you over a hurdle in your life, or you have ongoing issues that stem back to childhood that keep cropping up and you are ready to deal with, then I can help you recover and get you back on track.
It is important to note that no 2 therapy sessions are ever the same, and no 2 clients require the same therapy. I can guide and steer each therapy session in and out of multiple techniques as I need to, to deliver you the best possible service and get you back to your happy self as soon as possible.
Below are some of the techniques I am trained in and the benefits of each one:
Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy
Transactional analysis is a talking therapy and the 50 minute sessions are designed to explore your personality and how this has been shaped by experience, particularly those stemming from childhood.
The atmosphere that supports transactional analysis is non-judgemental, secure and respectful. This ensures that a positive relationship is forged between the therapist and client(s) in order to provide a model for subsequent relationships and communication that are developed outside of the therapy room.
I work collaboratively with you to identify what may not be working well for you and provide opportunities for you to change repetitive patterns that may be limiting your potential. I recognise that we all have the potential to live the life we want, rather than the life we are programmed to live. Sometimes however this potential is hindered by repetitive patterns or ‘unconscious scripts’ that stem from our childhood.
Coaching and NLP
Neuro-linguistic programming is often regarded as “a tool-kit for the mind”, because of this; NLP is used to improve all areas of a person’s life. It is known to be particularly effective for improving the following situations:
Anxiety and stress + Health and wellbeing – one of the most important ideas underpinning NLP is that the mind and body are closely connected.
Fears and Phobias – NLP can reveal the thought process behind the often ‘irrational’ fear.
NLP is an excellent tool for understanding people and their ways of communication. Learning these tips from an NLP coach will help a person improve how they communicate and improve their ability to empathise and negotiate with colleagues, employees and managers.
The 3 Principles
There is ALWAYS a thought before a feeling . . . . even if you don’t realise there is, it is often subconscious.
Sydney banks discovered ‘The 3 Principles’ in 1974 and now many therapists use it in their practice to help clients see that everything begins with our thoughts.
If we ‘think’ that outside events affect us we can be powerless to change –
‘My job makes me stressed’
‘My relationship has knocked my confidence’
‘Ive always been anxious’
But when we realise that its our own thinking about the events that leads to the feelings we become able to change the outcome.
Using The 3 principles of Universal Mind, Universal Consciousness and Universal Thought, everything changes.
“Your thoughts are like an artists brush, They create a personal picture of the reality you live in”
