Counselling and psychotherapy offering individual or relationship counselling using mindfulness or any of the following therapies:
MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy)
This approach allows the client to accept the feelings they are experiencing and to encourage change of those thoughts and behaviours rather than suppressing them, for it is widely reported that “As with rumination, the effects of avoidance are predominately negative". Attempts to suppress negative thoughts, for example, have been shown to paradoxically increase the frequency of intrusions rather than reduce them.
ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)
ACT is a behavioural therapy and incorporates ideas from Eastern philosophies as well as elements of a number of Western therapies such as CBT, Narrative therapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), and Hypnotherapy. The central principal of this therapy is based upon 'taking action'. By accepting what is in our control and what is not in our control, we can be encouraged to take action that leads to a fulfilling and meaningful life.
NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)
Neuro relates to whats happening in your mind.
Linguistic refers not only to the words you use in your communication but also your body language and how you use it.
Programming tackles the persistent patterns of behaviour, both effective and ineffective, that you learn and then repeat.
CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy uses a variety of combinations of verbal interventions and behaviour modification techniques to assist in changing maladaptive patterns of thinking.
IPT (Interpersonal Therapy)
Interpersonal Therapy recognises the importance of the current interpersonal world in the client symptoms and their mood, and links the mental health disorders to any relationship issues such as grief, disputes, life changing event and social skills. (From LLCC by Cate Howell)
Equine Assisted Therapy
Equine Assisted Therapy aims to support and build the skills needed to develop appropriate responses to our emotions. This helps develop healthy relationships, our problem solving skills and normal functioning. It is a therapeutic model that assists people to face their fears and overcome their anxiety that can immobilise or undermine our healthy decision making processes.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) defines the physiology and anatomy of the craniosacral system, its function in health and its relationship to disease processes. This has the potential of providing dramatic help to a significant number of issues which conventional medicine may have proven to be less effective. Many people suffer from dysfunctions and diseases of unknown etiology and in some cases CST can be the change that is needed. CST involves the practitioner seeing the individual as an integrated totality.
The concept of 'MetaPhysical Fitness'- the idea that meditating is similar to physical fitness in as much that you have to work at either one continuously if you want to stay in good mental or good physical shape.
Reiki healing incorporates accessing and balancing our Chakra systems which are doorways for our consciousness. They are doorways through which emotional, mental and spiritual force flow into physical expression. To understand the Chakras' and their relationship to our consciousness is to better understand ourselves. With the majority of healing's your body has its own innate consciousness whereby it responds and repairs when ready.
