About Dragonfly Counselling
In the same way that the Dragonfly is the symbol of change and self-realization; so too does therapy set out to help personal growth and bring about a deeper understanding of ourselves, our decisions, and our life. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, feel deep pain and unhappiness, or you’re confused about a certain aspect in your life, it is this kind of insight that Dragonfly counselling will guide you towards. I will provide a safe and caring environment for you to work through these roadblocks and together we will find a way to help you move forward.
As an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, I combine four main counselling approaches which consist of psychoanalytical relational theory, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, person-centred counselling, and mindfulness. What I feel would be most effective for you, will determine how I apply these approaches. I may only use one if I feel it is what will be most beneficial, or I may use multiple approaches to varying degrees.
People are unique individuals and so for therapy to be truly effective; my guidance will always reflect this. This may begin as psychoanalytical – to help you firstly understand your emotions – followed then by a cognitive approach to give you the coping skills you need to move forward, but either way, we will explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, helping you to tackle negative thought patterns and psychological blocks, so you can continue to move towards your full potential, find solutions and regain control.
This is why we are Dragonfly counselling.
