'Talking Cure'
‘… speak to me! I’m frightened because it’s dark.
What good would that do? You can’t see me.
That doesn’t matter. If anyone speaks, it gets lighter.’

Psychological distress is caused not by facing our difficulties, as intolerable as they may seem at times,

but rather failing to face them.
Psychotherapy is a process of bringing something into light through discussion, exploration and understanding. Speaking to a professional practitioner in a supportive and confidential environment will help you make sense of your difficulties and discover new ways to manage them.

Therapeutic approaches we offer: 

Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic practitioners focus on the unconscious patterns and conflicts that may be at the core of one’s difficulties and unhappiness. They look at the early childhood relationships that form one’s personality and attitudes towards oneself and others. These relationships are disclosed in the therapeutic relationship with the therapist, which is used as a tool for understanding, growth and change. Predominantly these approaches involve long-term, in-depth exploration.

The Existential-Phenomenological approach is rooted in the writings of existential philosophers. These philosophers explored the fundamentals of human existence: what does it mean to exist as a human being in the world?
Living invites many challenges such as finding meaning, making choices, facing death, relatedness versus isolation and more.
Existential therapy focuses on understanding your experience of living - what it means to be you, for example: how do you make sense of your life and your relationships; what are your strengths and limitations; what are your possibilities and choices. This process of exploration could increase your knowledge of yourself and the way you live and consequently could help you discover new possibilities.

Cognitive-Behavioural approaches can help you to manage your difficulties by changing the way you think and behave. These approaches propose that your thoughts and feelings are determined by the core beliefs you may hold. Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) focuses on helping you to modify the unhelpful core beliefs that result in automatic thoughts which can affect how you feel physically and emotionally, as well as how you act in any given situation. CBT has a good evidence base for a wide range of psychological difficulties and is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

Third Wave approaches, including Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT), use CBT methods in collaboration with mindfulness meditation, acceptance and compassion. These approaches focus on helping you to become more aware of your thoughts and feelings, develop your ability to pay attention to the present moment in a non-judgmental manner and learn a different way of relating to yourself and your experiences.
