About the methods
Contemporary Physchotherapy is an integrative and contemporary approach to psychotherapy. It works from the assumption that each individual is unique and carries with them the resources for change. So, therefore, the work is client centred and totally specific to each client. It is solution focussed in that the emphasis is on present and future, referring to the past only as relevant.
ERICKSONIAN HYPNOTHERAPY AND NEUROLINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING
Within Contemporary Psychotherapy we use these two methods to great effect.
Ericksonian Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis in a sensitive and gentle way, allowing
the client to stay in control and the unconsious mind to make the decisions.
Methods of storytelling, metaphor and language patterns are used which are
enjoyable and relaxing to experience.
NLP was created by modelling some of the work of successful therapists such as
Virginia Satir, Milton Erickson and Fritz Perls and so being able to distill and re-use the parts of their work which were "the difference that makes the
difference" The result is a collection of extremely practical teqniques for
Resonance Repatterning is a system using kinesiology (bio-feedback) as its tool,
for accessing negative patterns and shifting the resonance from our noncoherent behaviours to our coherent behaviours. It has been likened to re-tuning a radio station back to the right frequency.
"The centre I cannot find
Is known to my unconscious mind"
HOW I WORK
My first intention is to work with each person in exactly the right way for them.It will always be a solution-orientated approach looking to move forward
successfully. This may be a hypnotherapy session to move on a fear or a phobia,
or it may be that an agreed number of sessions are needed to explore a new direction or a shift in a pattern, or open-ended work may be best to build a framework in which to explore deeper-seated issues.
At the first session we will establish if I am the right person and it feels right to work with me and that we can build a rapport.
Then we can gently explore the possible ways of working and I will suggest what seems most aproppriate and we can agree on a plan together.
