OUR THERAPY IS DYNAMIC AND INFORMED BY THE LATEST NEUROSCIENTIFIC RESEARCH
Our therapy is informed by the latest neuroscientific research, and our style of working reflects its findings into how people get better, stay well, and flourish.
This affects the process in several ways:
Generally, the work involves exploration through talking only. Occasionally, we may use a mixture of Dynamic and Cognitive Analytical Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), or Body Psychotherapy. Where both client and therapist feel it to be appropriate, however, some practical exercises may be undertaken.
Sessions are once a week, on a weekly basis. It is important to attend your session, even - indeed, particularly - when you feel the going is getting hard and you would rather avoid what you are feeling - towards others, your therapist, or yourself. This is part of the process of therapy. Some clients who are in psychotherapy may be advised to consider, or ask for, twice weekly sessions, or more. Fees may sometimes be adjusted accordingly for this.
HOW DOES THERAPY WORK?
Therapy works through the special relationship which develops between client and therapist, in which painful or problematic experiences, feelings and memories, which on our own we feel unable to face, understand or deal with, are made gradually more manageable.
Change takes place at an emotional level, and this is the area in which we work together, building trust over time.
The latest neuroscientific research shows very clearly that talking therapies are significantly influential in changing the neural pathways in the brain which have become hard-wired over time, and in building new pathways and ways of thinking and feeling.
