I work with children from the age of 3 years, teens and adults.
The Practice now also includes Family and Divorce Mediation and Facilitation (I am a FAMAC accredited member). Divorce mediation is where disagreements over issues in the divorce process (drafting parenting plans and maintenance) is resolved in a cost effective way by a neutral third party (the Mediator). Negotiation rather than litigation.
Orientation and approachI make use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy. When appropriate I include a Positive Psychology perspective using Solution Focused Therapy and Mindfulness Cognitive therapy.
In my therapy the client and therapist work within a collaborative therapeutic relationship. I prefer short term therapy: to empower the client, deal with current stress effectively and in the moment (and for economic viability towards the client).
To change your way of thinking is to move great,
huge trunks around in the attic.
To change your way of acting is to push toothpaste back into the tube.
To change your way of feeling is to take a great, irretrievable leap of hope into the dark void.
To change means to develop and grow.
And to develop and grow
You have to
Move the trunk,
Push the paste,
If you do not work to execute your past, empower in the present
How shall you construct your future?
