We start with an initial consultation to see how we get on, and if we would like to work together, so that I can assess your needs for future sessions. We try to meet at a regular time each week.
As an integrative psychotherapist I work both cognitively and psychoanalytically, which for couples can mean working on your communication skills and behaviour patterns. We explore your history of couple relationships, and your relationships with your primary carers and family.
Similarly, in individual personal counselling and psychotherapy, together we explore your family history, your influences and the possible sources of your distress. We may also use behavioural techniques to work on assertiveness, self-esteem, anger management and anxiety.
