My goal is to provide expert, evidence-based treatments, informed by careful professional assessment, that’s tailored to meet your unique requirements.  

My gold tier is particularly helpful for clients who have experienced trauma and are still haunted by the impact of that traumatic event or events.  When applied diligently you will experience positive results that will build your resilience; adopt healthy boundaries, improve relationships with others; and move you from a place of stuckness and hopelessness to a life that’s worth living with purpose. 

Treatments are time-limited and directed ie: you will be guided through every step of the process and instructed on what to do.  You are involved at all stages from deciding on your treatment plan to reviewing your progress along the way through to ending therapy. 

Sessions are held weekly on the same day/time each week and may include up to four different therapeutic processes depending on your needs. 

Gold tier includes:

1.       Evidence-based trauma-informed CBT processes

2.       Complete assessment undertaken (includes risk assessment) to provide a tailored treatment plan

3.       Psychoeducation so you can understand why you feel the way you do

4.       A mutually agreed treatment plan

5.       Taught strategies and techniques to regulate emotions, relax the body and self-sooth

6.       Regular monitoring of your progress through self-assessment tools

7.       Feedback on your therapist to optimise service provision to you

8.       2 x optional follow-up sessions for maintenance and post-traumatic growth

9.       All sessions are 60 minutes duration, excluding first 2 x assessment sessions which are 90 minutes duration at no extra charge

Clients utilising this service will receive between session work and must therefore be committed to participating in treatment to get maximum benefit.

Most suited for: trauma clients either through directly experiencing or witnessing the event, learning it happened to someone you love, or repeated exposure to extreme or aversive details ie:

My bronze package is for clients seeking ‘one session at a time’ therapy (OAAT).  This model comes from the idea that the first session may be the last session too.  This model is most successful for clients seeking to solve a specific problem for which a solution is in their control yet have a particularly ‘stuck’ feeling (Talman 1990). There are no assessments involved and there is a maximum of 3 x OAAT sessions before moving to a silver or gold package depending on your needs.

Bronze tier includes:

1    1.  Each session is a whole stand-alone complete session and is time-limited to a maximum of 3 x consecutive sessions

      2.  Defined goal focused attainment

3    3.  Emphasis on strengths and competencies

4    4.  Practical solution focused approach

5    5.  Sessions are 50 minutes in duration

Most suited for clients:

·         -  Who expect and anticipate change

·         -  Who want to solve a specific problem that’s in their control to resolve

·         -  Who can identify past successes and with therapist assistance, identify helpful solutions

·         -  Feeling ‘stuck’ by anger, guilt, grief, fear, or overwhelm

·         -  Good for a specific anxiety, loss or work-related issue that’s in the client’s control to resolve

Contraindications: not suitable for clients looking to work through the effects of childhood and/or adult abuse, trauma, PTSD or CPTSD; or those with a diagnosed mental health disorder that requires ongoing support
