Which bucket would your therapy style fit into primarily?
I use Humanistic Existential therapy along with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness and music.
What’s that defining feature of your approach to therapy?
I collaborate with my clients, whom I prefer to call my fellow travellers, to work on a spectrum of issues including depression; anxiety; academic and work – life imbalance; mental, physical, and emotional stress; grief, loss, and trauma; fear of isolation and death; relationship and sexual issues; and gender and sexuality.
My therapeutic practice is guided by a philosophical approach that is rooted in the belief that we are free beings, responsible for our actions and the choices that we make.
The focus of my approach in therapy is to improve my client’s awareness of their immediate, ongoing experience – the ‘here-and-now,’ and to facilitate their search for meaning and purpose in life.
Suffering is a part of life, and the therapeutic process will reinforce their free will to choose how to respond to circumstances around them, even the most painful and distressing ones.
I provide a safe and trusting space that will empower them to explore their assumptions and perceptions of the current situation, to examine their values and spiritual and religious beliefs, and to be in touch with the deeper meaning of their life. My approach is called Humanistic-Existential.
Humanistic approach: Focuses on a person’s individual nature, rather than categorizing groups of people with similar characteristics as having the same problems. Humanistic therapy looks at the whole person, not only from the therapist’s view but from the viewpoint of individuals observing their own behaviour.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: Supports clients in learning to stop avoiding, denying, and struggling with their inner emotions and, instead, accept that these deeper feelings are appropriate responses to certain situations that should not prevent them from moving forward in their lives. Clients commit to making necessary changes in their behaviour, regardless of what is going on in their lives, and how they feel about it.
