Couples relationship counseling using the Gottman Method. The goals of Gottman Method Couples Therapy are to disarm conflicting verbal communication; increase intimacy, respect, and affection; remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy, and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship.
Cognitive hypnotherapy combines cognitive behavioural therapy and hypnosis with theories based on modern neuroscience. Cognitive hypnotherapy is used to positively influence emotional, behavioural, cognitive and symptomatic change. This branch of hypnosis is different from traditional schools of hypnotherapy. This technique draws influence from a range of theories and combines them so that they fall in line with the client’s personal goals, values and needs.
I am here to guide you through life’s most complex and difficult matters. I truly care about my client well-being and structure their counselling/psychotherapy services to meet their specific needs.
