Initial assessment sessions are cost and commitment free!!
As a Chartered Clinical Psychologist I practice ISTDP (Intensive Short- Term Dynamic Psychotherapy), which is a highly effective evidence based ‘attachment focused therapy’ that rapidly addresses your underlying issues at an emotional level. This allows you to pay closer attention to yourself and your emotions in ‘healthier’ ways, enabling you to experience your emotions to their fullest and allowing a natural healing process to occur.
This not only brings symptomatic relief but more importantly it enables you to use your feelings to guide your decision making in all areas of your life, allowing you to blossom and reach your full potential. This is unlike the numerous other therapeutic approaches I am trained in, which essentially aim to develop healthier coping strategies at an intellectual level.
During the assessment session we will establish appropriate treatment goals and will work in a collaborative and structured manner towards these. Issues are addressed systematically, with the greatest sensitivity and in a manner whereby you control the process ensuring you work at a pace that is optimal to you.
Please feel free to contact me by email or telephone and I can answer any questions you may have or arrange a cost and commitment free initial assessment session.
