When facing problems
it is sometimes hard to express ourselves
accurately in our habitual ways of talking.
Unconscious defences can inhibit real engagement with
therapy and can fall short of reflecting our true feelings.
Psychotherapy has adapted to this by evolving techniques
that draw on imagery and playful thinking, poetic language,
sand-tray, art, movement, games, story that can, with a
more lighthearted approach, get straight to the root
of the serious issue.
You don't need to consider yourself creative or have any special ability in such 'Arts' - they are simply helpful tools
that aid access to the unconscious. With skilful
faciliatation, we can, in a safe and secure environment, ,
together set about transforming harmful
narratives to healthier ones.
Effective Online Psychotherapy
Since the first lockdown I have had many new clients that I have only ever met and helped via live video-link. Being slightly sceptical at first I have been amazed at the level of intimacy and ease these platforms provide to the work.
It may be that for clients, being in their own home helps them to relax into the work, and the physical remoteness gives a freedom to expression that might sometimes take longer in unfamiliar surroundings.
Online sessions also solve the issue of having to schedule extra time to travel or managing complex diaries, particularly for family group sessions.
I have certainly been impressed and surprised at just how effective online therapy has proven, and look forward to continuing to offer sessions in the same way long into the future.
Any questions? Contact me to schedule an initial consultation,
