Adult counselling

Counselling can help adults to effectively manage a wide range of personal issues, family or relationship difficulties, and/or work related concerns. In developing an effective treatment plan, techniques are carefully tailored to suit a client’s presenting issues, needs, preferences and strengths.

Anita is trained and experienced in a range of evidence-based, client-centered counselling methods, using techniques from positive psychology, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), solution-focused and strengths-based counselling, coaching, and psychoeducation.

About Psychotherapy

Although counselling and psychotherapy can overlap considerably, psychotherapy tends to be longer term and is more concerned with the exploration and restructuring of the self.

Psychotherapy involves a gentle exploration of the past and developing an understanding of how the past might have impacted you on an emotional level. We look at identifying any unhelpful core beliefs you may have developed about yourself, others and the world, and processing and changing these unhelpful core beliefs. Positive psychology techniques may be learned to support lasting and positive change.

Anxiety, depression, anger, fear and recurrent relationship problems can sometimes stem from unresolved experiences from childhood and/or adolescence. People who may benefit from this type of work are those who have experienced a number of situations or circumstances in the past that may be impacting them in adult life.
