Types of Therapy We Offer
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a collaborative, practical and problem oriented approach to emotional problems whereby the client and therapist work together toward understanding difficulties in terms of the relationship between thoughts, feelings, body responses and behavior.
Many relationships can reach a stage where one or both partners are finding it difficult to see a way forward. The relationship may no longer seem to be providing what the person is looking for and they may now be wondering if it is possible to bring in changes that can help improve the situation.
Sometimes children experience difficulties and behave in ways that may cause disruption to their lives or be of concern to those around them. Play Therapy provides a child with an opportunity to “play out” their thoughts, feelings and problems just as, in certain types of adult therapy, an individual “talks out” their difficulties.
Because of the importance of sexual intimacy to developing and maintaining relationships, sexual dysfunction can cause a great deal of distress and anxiety, especially since it is a sensitive topic to discuss. Sex therapy helps with this distress and also with the sexual problem in a direct way.
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy recognizes that trauma is stored in the body and that trauma is therefore released through the body. We may be very unaware of the existence of these unresolved traumas and talking therapies alone may fail to unearth these unconscious issues.
Allowing our more imaginative and playful self to emerge in a sandtray process can be both revealing and healing, especially in relation to early experiences or traumatic events This enables clients to reflect on their life situation and explore solutions to their issues, while gaining greater self-acceptance and compassion.
Clinical supervision is available for counsellors and psychotherapists, in line with the guidelines and requirements for members of professional counselling and psychotherapy associations.
