Therapy Styles

Trauma informed, evidence-based therapy.

I am a trained trauma-informed therapist who employs a multimodal approach to provide a compassionate and authentic experience tailored to your individual needs. Drawing on somatic techniques and evidence-based therapies such as CBT, ST, EMDR, DBT, and ACT, my goal is to create a safe and supportive environment where you are encouraged to explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences.

If you're ready to begin your journey towards healing and self-discovery, schedule a consultation today to explore how we can work together. 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a therapeutic approach that explores the connection between our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours. This type of psychotherapy aims to enhance self-awareness by helping individuals understand how their thoughts and coping mechanisms impact their overall well-being. Through the use of various cognitive and behavioural techniques, CBT empowers individuals to identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviours. By cultivating healthier alternatives, CBT supports individuals in navigating challenges and achieving the fulfilling life they aspire to lead.

Schema Therapy - Mode Model

Schema Therapy is a therapeutic approach focusing on supporting individual identify and meet their core emotional needs. By uncovering 'schemas' - dysfunctional self-narratives - it aims to guide people toward healthier ways of meeting these needs. The therapy identifies and addresses unhelpful coping strategies that sustain life patterns influenced by these schemas. Employing a blend of cognitive, behavioural, and experiential techniques, Schema Therapy empowers individuals to strengthen adaptive coping mechanisms and reduce reliance on ineffective strategies. The ultimate outcome is healing from maladaptive schemas, allowing individuals to meet their emotional needs more effectively in their daily lives.

Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing 

Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy seeks to process traumas by mirroring our natural information processing system. Trauma, defined as anything causing a lasting negative impact on the mind and body, often leaves memories 'unprocessed' and frozen in the brain. EMDR employs bilateral stimulation, including eye movements, tapping, or sounds, to process these traumatic memories. While EMDR is widely recognized for its effectiveness in treating Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, it has also proven successful in addressing various mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions, complicated grief, and more.

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy 

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) is a skills-based approach designed to empower individuals to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives. Rooted in the term 'dialectical,' wherein two opposing truths can coexist, DBT encourages individuals to embrace self-acceptance while fostering personal growth and transformative change. Through cultivating mindfulness, managing distress effectively, regulating emotions, and nurturing healthy relationships, DBT supports individuals on their journey towards personal well-being and positive change.

Acceptance Commitment Therapy

Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) promotes acceptance of factors beyond personal control, guiding individuals to commit to actions aligned with their values and goals. The goal is to foster psychological flexibility by cultivating acceptance, distancing from unhelpful thoughts, practicing mindfulness, and pursuing personal values through committed actions. ACT aims to empower individuals to lead rich and meaningful lives.
