How I Treat

I will work alongside you with you and combine appropriate therapies to build a bespoke treatment plan for you depending on what your needs are. There is not one size that fits all as we are all unique as humans.

Humans are naturally goal-directed but they are also self-defeating and irrational. Most people are not aware that many of their thoughts about themselves are irrational and negatively affect the way they behave in relationships and situations. These thoughts can result in people suffering unhealthy negative emotions and engaging in self-destructive behaviours.

Rational Emotional Behavioural Therapy (REBT) is commonly at the core of the work as it is a very effective form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) that looks at the person rather than just the symptoms. REBT is an action-oriented approach focused on helping people deal with their irrational beliefs and learn how to manage their emotions, thoughts, and behaviours in a healthier and more realistic way.

Ultimately, REBT recognises that our cognitions, emotions, and behaviour are all connected, all interacting and influencing each other. To understand behaviour during situations, its essential to look at the beliefs that people hold about these situations and the emotions that arise because of those beliefs. REBT focuses mostly on the present to help someone understand how their perceptions of activating events, that may be past, present, or future, can cause emotional distress, which in turn, leads to unhealthy actions and behaviours that interfere with their life goals.

Once identified and understood and changed to more rational thoughts, this can help people to develop better relationships and approaches to these situations and events.
