I have an Honours degree in both Counselling and Psychotherapy and use an integrative, client-centred approach including: Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Emotionally-Focused Therapy (both of which are especially effective with couples), The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP) for trauma based issues, Mindfulness-Based Therapy and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.
