Individual Counselling and Psychotherapy For Adults, Adolescents and Young People, and Children with a Parent or Carer and on their own. Counselling sessions tend to be short term and Psychotherapy tends to be longer term depending on your needs. This includes the use of EMDR therapy if needed for Trauma, Anxiety or Depressions or any issue that seems stuck either emotionally or physically. Sessions can vary between 4 to 12sessions. We will review how sessions are going on a regular basis. I have experience working with the Emergency service personnel ; i.e., the Police and RNLI with regard to Trauma related work experiences through Occupational Health Departments.
Family Counselling For Parents, Children and Young people and Adolescents in their care. The length of session can vary between 3 and 8 sessions depending on issues and can include all family members sometimes and parents together or young people on their own. All families have some difficulties, these can be during peak developmental and life cycle stages and most get through them together without professional help. But sometimes, if there are too many stresses or changes and tensions, problems can mount up. The main aim of family therapy is to improve communication and relationships between family members so that the problem can be worked through together. The value of family therapy is to provide a safe place to explore difficult issues, reduce blame and increase a supportive and understanding environment for the family to grow and develop confidently in. I can help you do this.
Couple Counselling I offer a safe place to explore current difficulties in the relationship through discussion, negotiation and sometimes compromise. The aim would be to either encourage you both to reconnect with what you love about each other, to create new ways to find intimacy that fit for you, or find acceptable and respectful ways to end the relationship if that seems appropriate to your needs.
