Evidence suggests long term relational "one to one" counselling therapy produces effective outcomes, however shorter term counselling can also be effective with helping people through difficult moments in their lives.
I am trained in a 5 -relational model which includes, psychodynamic factors (unconscious / past patterns), here and now relations, reparative relationship, intersubjective and the working alliance between us both. The relationship in the counselling room can often be a mirror for the relationships that occur outside the room thus the counselling room can provide a space for dynamics to be worked through.
I can also work with CBT and help look at thought processes which can contribute to issues such as low self-esteem and anxiety for example.
