THERAPY PROCESS

INDIVIDUAL INITIAL ASSESSMENT (1 hour)

One-to-one clinical assessment of presenting problems to understand the severity, origins, triggers and maintaining factors. This understanding will help guide goal-setting and appropriate treatment planning, whether that be in an individual therapy or mini-group therapy format. You are welcome to bring a support person along to this initial assessment.  

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

(one-to-one)

Duration: 1 hour

Frequency: variable

Individualised treatment for as many sessions as collaboratively agreed on. This individual therapy format may be more desirable for those wanting specific help with a range of concerns. It is also the most appropriate option for complex problems or specific diagnoses such as obsessive compulsive disorder.

We will collaboratively prioritise your goals and be flexible with each session's agenda.

Please contact me for more information.

! PLEASE NOTE THAT MY AVAILABILITY FOR INDIVIDUAL THERAPY SESSIONS IS LIMITED

MINI-GROUP THERAPY

(2-4 max. people per group)

Duration: 1-1.5 hour

Frequency: weekly (timing negotiable with the group) for four weeks

Mini-group therapy is more structured applied skills training. It is more suitable for people who have milder severity of anxiety. You are welcome to come with friends or acquaintances or I can match you up with suitable people with similar concerns.

Group therapy is shown to be effective for reducing anxiety yet there is some public feedback that other large support groups can be overwhelming and less focused on individual’s specific problems. Therefore, mini-groups of approximately 2-4 people may combat these problems.

 

Advantages of group therapy include normalising problems and support from group members in session and between sessions via social media sites or informal gatherings.

Please contact me for specific session topics.
