Types of therapy

I am trained in, and offer different therapies which are listed below. The types of therapy will be discussed once the assessment is complete, and will be determined by your personal circumstances.

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy:

Psychodynamic psychotherapy explores how unconscious past experiences may affect current patterns of behaviour.  This includes how you see yourself and can explain current difficulties in your relationships. I work within the framework of object relations and self psychology theories, as I help you to understand and change interpersonal difficulties. The process of psychodynamic therapy can be open ended and is usually suitable for longer term work.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT):

CBT examines the relationship between your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, with the aim of identifying distorted thought patterns, to actively challenge and reframe them. These distorted thoughts are often linked to deeply held beliefs about yourself, which could be inaccurate. Identifying, and changing these belief systems, become a central part of the therapy. This type of therapy is structured, time limited and goal orientated, requiring ongoing self evaluation between sessions.

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT):

DBT creates an opportunity for thinking before acting on feelings. Techniques such as mindfulness, distress tolerance skills, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness are taught. As with other cognitive therapies it requires self monitoring and actively practicing new techniques.  This therapy is often used in conjunction with other cognitive therapies.

BWRT (Brainworking Recursive Therapy)

‘BWRT®’ stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®’, a modern model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. It uses a totally logical, practical and down-to-earth working method in which it’s not necessary for you to talk about anything you would rather not discuss – the practitioner only needs to know how you feel and how you would prefer to feel instead. BWRT® is unlike any other therapy you might have heard of or read about, using the latest discoveries in neuroscience coupled with your own unique brain processes to help you get better. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code. Find out more at http://www.bwrt.org
