I offer two types of therapy - Both types of therapy can be face-to-face sessions or online using the Zoom video calling service or WhatsApp.
Solution Focused Brief Therapy
Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) concentrates on finding solutions in the 'here and now' and exploring your hopes for the future to find a fix for your problem.
The core belief of this approach is that you know what you need to do to improve your own life and, with the appropriate coaching and questioning, are capable of finding the best solutions. The other core belief is that talking about problems does not help when you are looking for solutions.
There may be several reasons why you would prefer SFBT. If you feel that traditional, problem focused, therapy just doesn’t work for you.
Perhaps it feels that repeatedly going over your problem is not helping, perhaps even making things worse?
Maybe you just don't like the idea of discussing your problem with a complete stranger?
Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is really different.
We don't even need to discuss the problem at all if you don’t want to.
Together we focus on what the solution will look like and you will decide on small steps that will take you to the future you want.
Some people only need one session and most people don’t need more than four.
Sessions are one hour long and not necessarily weekly. Four sessions could take place over ten weeks if that was what worked for you. You decide if you want to come back and together we agree the timing and dates.
It takes a maximum of 6 sessions.
Person Centred Therapy
Person centred therapy has at its core the belief that the client knows what is best, knows what is hurting and knows how to move forward. My role as your therapist is to help you get in touch with your own inner resources.
Person Centred therapy is more traditional in that we spend time working on what lies behind the issues you are facing.
Sessions are one hour long and held weekly.
There is no maximum number of sessions and you decide when the sessions will end.
