Adults and adolescents:
- Short term therapy usually lasts between 8 to 12 sessions where the focus is usually problem specific and attention is placed on developing skills to help alleviate symptoms and increase current functioning.
- Longer term therapy provides a supportive and containing structure where a deeper understanding of oneself and ones difficulties can be explored, whereby facilitating a process of growth and change.
I also offer various structured therapeutic and skills based groups. Current groups include:
· A Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) skills training group
· A therapeutic group for the family members and/or loved ones of someone with addiction.
All forms of psychometric assessment offered for educational, diagnostic or treatment purposes. These include cognitive, scholastic, vocational, neuropsychological, emotional or perceptual.
