Your Therapy In a snapshot 

The first session is an initial assessment in which we will discuss your difficulties that led to you seeking therapy at your pace. The goal is for us to build a shared understanding of the presenting problem and the psychological and spiritual factors that may be serving to maintain the problem. From this, clear goals and expectations from therapy are  established. 

Subsequent sessions will involve us mapping out your difficulties utilising evidenced based treatment protocols, breaking unhelpful thinking and behaving patterns and establishing more helpful patterns

Simply put, therapy is actively working our way out of an unhelpful place into a more helpful one. It is active and you will have an active role within your recovery and management of your difficulties. Together we will agree on small weekly achievable tasks that will encourage you to strengthen new learning from your sessions.
