We provide the following services:
Counselling - this is for focussed work on a specific issues or related issues. It can last ten sessions, to forty sessions. It is usually takes place at a set time on a weekly basis.
Couple Counselling - is for couples who need some support to expore embattled postions with each other, to get a neutral facilitator to help them re-engage in a meaningful intimate way with one other. This usually takes place at a set time on a weekly basis, though the therapist may choose to see the couple separately for one or two sessions to hear them independently of their partners.
NLP is the practice of understanding how people organise their thinking, feeling, language and behaviour to produce the results they do. NLP provides people with a methodology to model outstanding performances achieved by geniuses and leaders in their field.
A key element of NLP is that we form our unique internal mental maps of the world as a product of the way we filter and perceive information absorbed through our five senses from the world around us.
- Neuro: Each individual has established their own unique mental filtering system for processing the millions of bits of data being absorbed through the senses. Our first mental map of the world is constituted of internal images, sounds, tactile awareness, internal sensations, tastes and smells that form as result of the neurological filtering process. The first mental map is called ‘First Access’ in NLP.
- Linguistic: We then assign personal meaning to the information being received from the world outside. We form our second mental map by assigning language to the internal images, sounds and feelings, tastes and smells, thus forming everyday conscious awareness. The second mental map is called the Linguistic Map (sometimes known as Linguistic Representation)
- Programming: The behavioural response that occurs as a result of neurological filtering processes and the subsequent linguistic map.
Psychotherapy - This is a longer term exploration of who you are in the world, it tends to last longer than one year and to be far more wide ranging in the issues that are explored. This tends to be weekly over one to three years, though it can be more regularly depending on the support required throughout the process.
Art Therapy - is a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of communication.
Clients who are referred to an art therapist need not have previous experience or skill in art, the art therapist is not primarily concerned with making an aesthetic or diagnostic assessment of the client’s image.
