Therapy can be very daunting and is a process with its ups and downs. It is not a linear process but is grounded in the relationship. The therapy I provide takes place within an Interactional Framework which is underpinned by General Systems theory. This means that each client is viewed holistically and their relationships and environment are taken into consideration. The client is addressed not only on an individual level but also as people in relationships, dealing with interactions with others, their interactional patterns and dynamics. I’m eclectic in my approaches depending on the client’s personal characteristics and context.
This is a collaborative process between the therapist and the client.
