Why Talk therapy?

Most people will seek a psychologist or a counsellor because they want to change something about their lives, transforming negative aspects and growing positive ones.

The aim to help you overcome issues that are causing discomfort or pain. It provides a safe and regular space for you to talk about difficult feelings and explore how you can enhance your life. The counsellor is there to support you and respect your views.

Through this process, you may find your own insight and develop different perceptions of your problems. You may explore alternative ways of coping with life's challenges and develop new responses to old issues.


Counselling modalities:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT offers a better understanding of cognition and how thought patterns can lead to distress, maladaptive behaviors and mental illness. It provides people with tools to identify and adapt thoughts for improved mood.

CBT has a reputation for being one of the best evidence-based practices available. It is well known for its efficacy and short-term, goal-oriented approach.

Counselling sessions are a collaborative process between client and counsellor with ongoing homework recommended.

Positive Psychology

Positive Psychology is the study of those strengths and virtues that enable individuals and communities to thrive. The field is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives. They want to cultivate what is best within themselves in order to enhance their experience of love, work, and play.

Positive Psychology postulates that psychology has historically focused its efforts on mental health problems and how to resolve them. There was little talk about what made life worth living.

Positive Psychology proposes to correct this imbalance by focusing on one's attributes and resilience in order to build on the best things in life while repairing or healing from the worst.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

EFT uses a combination of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Traditional Chinese Medicine. It has been referred to as acupuncture without the needles. By tapping on acupressure points, the client activates energy channels while talking with the counselor about any particular area of mental or physical distress. 

It is based on the idea that negative emotions or experiences can get stored in the body via memory or patterning, creating chronic physical pain, disease or persistent mental health issues. The talking and NLP aspects allows for unhelpful narratives and memories to arise and be cleared.

EFT gently and effectively releases blockages, allowing for a greater ability to heal and feel differently.
