Therapy

As a Counselling Psychologist and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist I have worked with hundreds of clients and understand the intricacies of various psychological issues that people face. My work revolves around being professional, friendly and empathetic. I help my clients to resolve their emotional issues of the past and the present, to be able to open the door to a brighter and confident future.

Individual Therapy

Individual treatment is to help people with their emotional, personal and relationship issues, which can range in order of their severity or intensity. There are many issues that find a corner in our heart, and refuse to die down. With time, these issues can impact negatively on our daily life, such as lack of concentration, enthusiasm, self respect, will to change, encouragement, and so on. These issues can spiral into our lives in various ways and get channelled into other zones, which can create problems in our relationships, professional life, and health. The main aim of individual therapy is to change quality of life and bring in more clarity. Whether it is the problem from childhood that you are facing, or an emotional breakdown due to divorce, failure or loss of a loved one, we can help you revive your mental health through systematic and structured therapy. Together, we will address the root cause of the problem.

Couples Therapy

A relationship goes through numerous phases during its life cycle, and it is obvious for it to have a few rough patches. However, the strength of a relationship is reflected in how the couple deals with those rough patches and moves ahead. Modern lifestyles have changed the pattern of thinking for people in respect to relationships. This has turned the statistics for divorce and marriage in the last couple of decades, upside down. However, while divorce and separation is necessary in many cases to avoid further troubles and emotional distress if the problems are irrecoverable and irreversible, this is not the case for all relationships experiencing difficulties.

We believe that love should be given a chance, and that there are relationships that can be saved, if only the people involved would take that first step and make that last ditch effort to save their relationship. This is where couples therapy comes in. Our approach towards couples therapy is oriented not only towards solving the problems the couple is facing, but to revive the feeling of love and affection they have towards each other.

Online Therapy

Sometimes a barrier to engaging in therapy is the difficulty with being able to travel to attend sessions for a number of reasons including work and/or family commitments, difficulties with travel and physical health. We offer face to face therapy using Skype to minimise the difficulties that stop some people who are willing to seek professional help but unable to do so in the traditional format.

You will need to register your interest using the contact form or by calling or emailing. We will then arrange a time to meet via Skype. All other therapy practices; regular meeting time and weekly 50 minute sessions, will apply and you will need to ensure that you can have 50 undisturbed minutes.

You can email on contact@prudentiaps.com

Frequently Asked Questions

What is therapy? 

Therapy can range in the number of sessions; from several weeks to several months. The number of sessions you have will depend on your individual situation.

Sessions will last for fifty minutes. We will meet once a week, at the same time, as therapy tends to work to the extent that there is commitment and regularity in the arrangement on the part of both client(s) and therapist. Therapy will be most helpful when we are able to meet consistently to work on the agreed issues.

Do I really need therapy? I can usually handle my problems on my own.

Therapy helps a person, not only in self reflection, but by encouraging self belief and self reliance. The painful emotional beliefs and reservations that restrict you from meeting your goals, following your passion, or living the life you want to live can be overpowered. Sometimes it is useful to have an objective person to help you to achieve this, someone without the subjective motivations of yourself or others in your life. This is what can be achieved when we work together to face your concerns

What can I expect in the first consultation?

Your initial consultation is a chance for us to meet to see if we feel we can work together on the issues that you are bringing. This session will be different from the rest of your therapy sessions, as it is a time for your therapist to collect information about your experiences and background and for us to to get to know each other and get an idea of how to proceed. Future visits will be more therapeutic in nature.

During the initial consultation you will be asked about what brings you to therapy; what you feel is wrong in your life, any symptoms you are experiencing and your history. History taking will cover things such things as your childhood, education, relationships (family, romantic, friends) and your current living situation so that a fuller picture of you and your life can be gained.

Do not expect any instant solutions to your problems during this first session. Therapy is about equipping you with life-long solutions rather than providing you with a quick temporary fix.
