I work with several types of therapies which are customised to each person, best suited to individual needs. Using an integrative approach, leading with person-centred therapies and incorporating CBT and psychodynamic therapies.
Focuses on your personal worth and believes in your potential and free will. This approach works to develop a strong and healthy sense of self.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Provides coping skills and tools for dealing with different problems – with a focus on thoughts, beliefs and attitudes affecting our feelings and actions.
Reactions to certain situations may be influenced by past events. This therapy helps you to gain greater insight into how you think and feel, in order to have a greater understanding of yourself and to make more appropriate decisions.
Self-esteem / low self confidence
Low mood or depression
Working with trauma
Negative behaviour patterns
Coaching / Life direction
I have found that therapy with Elaine has helped me to feel lighter and better able to cope as I can get things off my chest so I don't carry the burden any more than I need to. I feel that Elaine listens to me, understands me and uses her knowledge and experience to support me, whilst providing the skills to cope.
