Individual therapy is about finding a way to deal with anxiety, stress, life stage issues,
trauma and personal development. These may be as a result of something that
happened in your past or that you are currently dealing with.
My philosophy and approach to therapy has many points of connection with positive
psychology in that I work within a framework of health. This means that apart from
instances of severe pathology, my focus is on identifying strengths and areas of
development in clients.
My paradigm is systemic, which means I view behaviour and pathology against the
background of the context that facilitates or maintains that behaviour. It is also
constructivist, in that I believe that realities are constructed and not absolute.
