Therapy and Coaching

I offer three services for adult  individuals and couples

  • Single Session Therapy

  • Ongoing Therapy

  • Coaching

Single Session Therapy

Single Session Therapy is for you if you have a specific issue that can be tackled in a focused way and you want to deal with it as quickly as possible. It is not for you if you have issues that you think require ongoing therapy (see below).

I have developed a new approach to single session therapy known as “Single Session Integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (SSI-CBT)”.

  • The basic purpose. SSI-CBT’s key objective is to help you get unstuck and move on with your life as quickly as possible.
  • Procedure. Once we have decided together at our first point of contact that SSI-CBT is for you, we will have a 20-30 minute telephone conversation to enable us to be best prepared for the face-to-face session. I will then send you an email summarising this conversation. The face-to-face session that follows lasts for 50 minutes. With your permission, I record the session and send you the recording and a transcript of the session which serve as a reminder of what we discussed. These are included in the costs. We will then have a follow-up telephone call three months after the face-to-face session.
  • Need more sessions? You may have more sessions with me at any time if you need them.

Ongoing Therapy

Ongoing therapy is for you if you think that you need time to deal effectively with your issues. The following are my specialities:

  • The emotional disorders (i.e. anxiety, depression, guilt, shame, hurt, unhealthy anger, jealousy and envy)
  • Relationship problems (e.g. difficulties in forming or sustaining relationships, dealing with conflict in relationships)
  • Self-discipline problems (e.g. procrastination, difficulties in maintaining  healthy lifestyle patterns, problems in persistence)

Coaching

Coaching is for you if you think you can get more out of yourself and your life. In coaching I will help you to

  • Set objectives that are based on your values
  • Identify and deal with any obstacles that you encounter along the path to these objectives
  • Develop persistence in maintaining and enhancing your gains
