If you want to deal with a specific issue, CBT might be useful. The purpose of CBT is to help people change the way they think about themselves and the way they perceive their own circumstances.
CBT focuses more on the present and the future and is typically considered “short term therapy”, sessions ranging from 6 to 12. Most of the times, CBT incorporates mindfulness and breathing techniques used for anxiety, panic attacks, stress relief.
This approach is generally used when people want to explore therapy in an open ended space, without a set number of sessions. Working psychodynamically means the focus of the sessions will be to explore the upbringing, past relationships and events that have contributed to the personality of the individual.
Focusing on the past is key to understanding how someone has become the person they are and how their decisions are shaped by unconscious thoughts and emotions.
I often incorporate a combination of both CBT and a Psychodynamic approach into the sessions.
In order to decide which type of counselling is right for you I offer a 30 minute introductory session free of charge.
This is an opportunity for you to meet me, ask questions and discuss what you would like to gain from counselling.
If you think I am the right therapist for you, feel free to book in a session with me.
I provide online counselling for individuals that require support but are not able for different reasons to attend face to face sessions.
The fee is £60/session and every session lasts 50 minutes.
There is a reduced fee rate available for students.
Looking forward to meeting you!
