The main sort of counselling and therapy I offer to help you overcome your stress, anxiety, depression or other form of unhappiness is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). At its heart, this approach to therapy is based on helping you develop your self-knowledge and emotional intelligence to build your psychological and mental strength.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a powerful mindfulness-based therapy (and coaching model) which currently leads the field in terms of research, application and results.
I will work with you to build genuine happiness from the inside out by:
- Developing mindfulness (without meditation) skills. These are psychological skills to help you understand why we all suffer from anxiety, self-doubt, and low self-confidence - and how you can effectively cope and deal with these painful thoughts and feelings o that they don’t get in the way of enjoying and appreciating your life. I can help you transform old patterns into new more helpful habits.
- Helping you to clarify what is truly important and meaningful to you – i.e your values – then use that knowledge to guide, inspire and motivate you to change your life for the better – even when times are tough.
- Emphasising the crucial nature of self-care and giving you tools and techniques to help you to develop self-compassion and treat yourself kindly.
