Find Out

The first session is to find out about you. This is known as an assessment session, the aim is to gather information to lay the foundations for the following sessions. Values, goals, history will be explored as well as thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Your therapist will begin to create a working model known as a formulation and explore confidence roadblocks and self-limiting beliefs. You will also be sent questionnaires relating to anxiety, mood and lifestyle.  

Confidence

Learn to be Present

This session will focus on learning to be present. It will begin with an introduction to mindful awareness, using your senses to be grounded in the present moment.  We will explore why this is important and work with breath to increase sense of being embodied. Being present has been shown to reduced anxiety, increase confidence, improve mood and have a positive impact on creativeness, concentration and focus.

Overcome avoidance

Many of us avoid something in our lives. This may be something physical such as public speaking or it may be thoughts or emotions. This session will focus on any avoidance that may be getting in your way. Safety seeking and unhelpful behaviours will also be explored. Often we are not aware of the things we do that get in the way of us living the life we want.

Understanding thoughts and emotions

Using techniques from CBT and ACT you will learn to become aware of thinking styles and  accept and defuse unhelpful thoughts and emotions. Learning to defuse from thoughts allows us to realise that we are not our thoughts. We may not be able to choose what enters our mind, but we can choose what to do with them.

Habit

Realising potential

Exploring qualities, skills, thinking styles and Psychological flexibility. Motivation and procrastination, What is getting in the way? Committed action to values. Recognise that limits are only where we set them.
