What type of counselling do you practice?
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is my go-to approach which is trauma informed and also informed by poly-vagal theory and compassion focussed therapy.
What will happen in my first session?
ACT is about taking action to solve problems and make life better. It is about learning skills to handle difficult thoughts and feelings more effectively, so they have less impact and influence over you. I want you to leave each session with some new skills to try out or a plan of action – something you can take home and do between sessions that will make a positive difference.
Some people begin counselling thinking that they have to tell me their whole life story, but counselling is not really like that. I'll spend some time finding out what has brought you to counselling at this time and then we'll move onto how to make your life work more effectively.
ACT is a very active form of therapy – it's not just talking about problems. After finding out about what has brought you to counselling we will work together to clarify what matters to you, how you want to treat yourself, and others, and what gives your life meaning and purpose. Don't panic if you're not sure about these things right now!
Sometimes we're not sure about these things, or we're in the middle of some big stuff and we lose sight of what matters most to us. I will support you to find out or rediscover what gives your life meaning.
