Therapy can be beneficial for individuals who are struggling with a wide range of mental health concerns, as well as for those who are simply seeking personal growth and self-improvement. It's important to remember that seeking therapy is a personal decision, and there is no "right" or "wrong" reason to seek therapy. Whatever the reason, therapy can provide you with a supportive and non-judgmental space to explore your thoughts and feelings, gain new insights and perspectives, and work towards greater emotional well-being
I am a Contemporary Psychotherapist which is a pluralistic/integrative talking therapy model which can integrate NLP and Hypno-Psychotherapy/trance states. The pluralistic approach draws from a range of therapeutic techniques and models, and focuses on tailoring the therapy to the individual client's unique needs and circumstances.
Contemporary Psychotherapy is a discipline that evolves with time, new research and understanding which aligns to best serve the most pressing needs of society and the individual. It encompasses a range of different therapeutic models, techniques, and methods that helps people address a wide range of mental health issues. Contemporary psychotherapy emphasises a collaborative relationship between the therapist and the client, in which the client takes an active role in their own healing process and the therapy process may include tasks to do between sessions.
Psychotherapy sessions can help:
Living with a loss
Growth of the self
I thoroughly enjoy working with folks who wish to find their truest selves, to break away from social constructs and carve out the lives they want to live.
NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, which is a therapeutic approach that focuses on the relationship between the neurological processes (neuro), language (linguistic), and behavioural patterns (programming) that we use to interact with the world around us. NLP techniques involve a range of strategies for communicating with the unconscious mind, including language patterns, visualisation, and sensory-based exercises. NLP is used to help individuals overcome limiting beliefs and behaviours, develop new skills and capabilities, and improve their overall sense of well-being.
A trance state is a type of altered state of consciousness in which an individual's attention is focused on a specific idea or experience in order to facilitate therapeutic change and improve the client's well-being. Trance states can induce a sense of deep relaxation, which can help clients reduce stress and anxiety. In a trance state, clients may be more open to exploring and accessing unconscious thoughts, feelings, and memories that may be difficult to access in a fully conscious state. Trance states can be used to help clients change problematic behaviours by creating new associations or patterns of thought and they can also be used to facilitate creativity and imagination, which can be useful in helping clients explore new perspectives and solutions to problems. Trance states are a natural and common part of human experience. For example, people often enter into trance states when they are deeply engaged in an activity, such as playing music, reading, or watching a movie. Similarly, daydreaming or getting lost in thought or meditating can also be considered a type of trance state.
I have a passion for working with clients with ADHD, I myself have an ADHD diagnosis and have experienced the lived difficulty of having this condition. I want to help individuals with ADHD to thrive and reach their full potential by offering a strengths based approach to help empower my clients to improve their self-esteem and confidence.
I also integrate ideas from Polyvagal theory, Attachment theory and Somatic theory into my sessions and home tasks.
