I am glad you are asking this question. There is evidence to suggest that therapy is more successful when the personal style of the therapist is of the client’s liking.
You may have come across or read about therapists being quiet for the majority of the consultation and perhaps at the end offering interpretations of what you are saying. Other therapy approaches can come across as formulaic, inflexible and jargon laden. I aim to offer something completely different to those ways of carrying out therapy.
As an evidence-based practitioner and by the nature of my personality, I consider you to be the experts on your lives and the issues you bring. I am keen to listen and learn from all what you bring without judging or taking sides. On my part, I bring expertise in the knowledge-base and practice of Couples Therapy and practical skills from my long experience of helping people both in the NHS and private practice.
I employ methods from specific Couples Therapy programs as well as Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy and other proven therapies, to help you reaching your goals for therapy, and facilitate healing and change. If you already have experience and knowledge of Couples Therapy, we will build on what already works for you and incorporate that with our jointly developed treatment programme. My approach to the realisation of therapy is to be outcome-focussed, non-dogmatic and collaborative. I also aim to bring healthy doses of fun and congeniality to our sessions.
It is of course easy to say and write the above things. For this reason, I encourage and invite you to meet or call me to make up your mind. I look forward to hearing from you.
