Types of therapy

Below you can find a short description of the types of therapy I am trained and experienced in providing. Because everyone is unique, I believe it's important to first understand the types of problems my clients are experiencing before recommending a plan for therapy that is right for them. 


Cognitive Behavior Therapy

 

 

CBT is a form of therapy which focuses on developing new strategies and practical techniques that can help you change how you think about yourself, other people and the outside word, in order to positively change your behaviours.

 

Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy

 

DIT is a brief form of psychodynamic therapy that explores psychological distress in relation to interpersonal difficulties and relationships, helping the individual to understand patterns of interactions that underpin these difficulties as well as develop more effective coping strategies.  

 

Cognitive Analytical Therapy

 

CAT is a form of therapy that focuses on understanding maladaptive patterns of behavior and interpersonal interactions, helping the individual to recognise these patterns, understand their origins, and subsequently learn alternative strategies in order to cope better.

 

Mentalisation-Based Therapy

 

Mentalisation-Based Therapy is a form of psychodynamically-oriented psychotherapy designed to help people with personality disorders, focused on helping people to better understand the thoughts and feelings of themselves and those around them.

 

Mindfulness

 

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Approaches help people to observe their thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. These approaches often incorporate relaxation techniques.

 

Acceptance and commitment therapy

 

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies to increase psychological flexibility, including an ability to recognize but not act on negative thoughts. 

 

Coaching and mentoring

 

Coaching and mentoring are development techniques based on 1-to-1 discussions to develop and enhance individuals' skills and performance, manage change and achieve personal aims.
