My approach to working with emotional intensity is to blend psychotherapeutic approaches such as Schema Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mentalisation-based Therapy, EMDR with other more intuitive modalities such as Symbol Work and Art Therapy.
On top of 'fire-fighting' with the imminent issues, we aim to make changes to the deep-seated life patterns that cause similar issues to come up again and again in your life. This process can create lasting changes because it looks beyond the surface and addresses the core emotional roots.
Sharing concepts and knowledge with you is a core part of our journey, as my goal is not to keep you in therapy forever. Ultimately, you will be equipped with the necessary skills and capacity so that you can take charge of your own growth.
I am trained in some of the following approaches and draw on them in an integrative way in our work together.
