Welcome to Thought Tree. People come to therapy for a wide variety of reasons. Perhaps you’ve not been feeling yourself or have been feeling sad or worried for some time. Maybe you are questioning the value of a relationship, or feeling stuck and missing a sense of meaning in your life. Maybe you just need someone to really listen. I provide a compassionate, non- judgemental space that allows for self-awareness, perspective and growth. My counselling is thoughtful and person centred meaning that you are actively involved in the process.

Life is never a smooth sailing. It is full of ups and downs and sometimes nasty surprises. It might be difficult to think, sometimes, that things can get better. There may be troubles at work with boss or a co-worker, unsettled feelings around in-laws, difficulties in resolving issues with a partner, or even issues within yourself. As difficult as those issues may sound, it is possible to attend to them, and with the right help, to resolve them.

You're tired of feeling this way. There is a negative voice in your head, or uncomfortable feeling in your body that just won’t go away; it takes up so much of your energy, making it hard to live the life you want. Perhaps you know you struggle with anxiety; or you don't use that word, but find yourself frustrated at an inability to have the relationships you want, are unable to reach for your goals, and are just so very tired of living with that gnawing, disabling sense of ill-ease in your chest or your gut. Counselling can help you grow through learning different ways of experiencing the world, and feeling deeply understood.

As an achiever you find yourself stressed and overwhelmed. You know its important to practice self-care but increasingly you have found your mental health slipping. You're on the proverbial hamster wheel, feeling you've lost the capacity to meet the demands of competing roles at home and in the workplace. I am passionate about working with people in demanding work roles, be they professionals, entrepreneurs, or first responders. I also find deep value in working with clients who have identified the impact of the emotional trauma of their childhood in their current relationships and personal endeavours.

Attachment-based Counsellors

Is attachment-based therapy the same as attachment therapy?

Attachment-based therapy may be confused with what is called “attachment therapy” (sometimes called “holding therapy”), a discredited and dangerous approach to treating children with attachment disorders, autism, or other mental health concerns. Attachment therapy—not attachment-based therapy—may involve restraining a child, forcing eye contact, and other coercive or abusive techniques. None of these practices are used in attachment-based therapy and the two modalities are in no way related.

What should I expect from attachment-based therapy?

Attachment-based therapy is based on attachment theory, which posits that children’s early relationships with their caregivers strongly influence their ability to navigate the world later in life. Thus, adults who seek attachment-based therapy should expect to deeply explore their childhood, identifying the dynamics or experiences that disrupted their attachment and the steps necessary to overcome challenges that arose as a result. Parents and children should expect to explore the possible factors that disrupted the parent-child relationship and work toward restoring trust and connection.

How long does attachment-based therapy last?

Certain forms of attachment-based therapy, especially those designed for parents and children, last for a set number of sessions; for example, Attachment and Biobehavioural Catch-Up, a specific attachment-based approach for young children who have undergone early adversity, unfolds over 10 one-hour sessions. When attachment-based therapy is practiced on adults or combined with other modalities, it may not last a specific length of time; clients may wish to ask prospective therapists how long they expect treatment to take.

Does attachment-based therapy work?

Most of the research on attachment-based therapy focuses on children and adolescents. Some of this research shows a positive effect, especially for attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). Other studies, however, have found that attachment-based therapy is no more effective than other approaches to childhood depression, anxiety, or suicidality. Less is known about the therapy’s efficacy on adult populations.
