How Do We Practice?
We work as integrative practitioners by incorporating various therapeutic approaches to facilitate the individual needs of clients. This allows us to work from an evidence-based perspective as different orientations lend themselves to best resolve certain difficulties. Cognitive behavioral therapy, for example, is often considered best practice in the treatment of anxiety and depression; however, individual needs may also suggest the use of either psychodynamic or humanistic approaches.
Specialist Approaches for Trauma Work
We have specialised training in trauma treatment and incorporate this into their psychotherapeutic practice when necessary.
Marianne is trained in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), an evidence-based approach in the treatment of PTSD and other lesser traumas. This approach is particularly effective for clients who feel that past traumas remain stuck in their memory and refuse to shift.
