MY APPROACH

AAA Standard Therapy Plan

A step-by-step approach to solving the right problem

Assessment

Stubborn or recurrent problems are often symptoms of deeper issues – so we use processes to cut through outward symptoms and the content of what we are doing when the problem occurs to get to the How you are doing that problem.

For example, a way of thinking that is generalized will often lead a person to see the wood but not the trees – so the big picture and not the detail – this way of processing can lead to rumination or stuck thinking or behaviours such as procrastination and both are often
symptoms of anxiety and depression. An example of the thinking would be “This always happens to me” – when there are plenty of situations where it does not.

So, time is spent on assessment to create a Therapy Plan or blueprint for how we are going to tackle the problem in a collaborative way. This will usually take 2-3 sessions to ensure
we understand the underlying causes and tackle the right problem in the right way that suits you as an individual. The process includes a number of different Psychometric questionnaires suited to the problem being tackled.

Following assessment, we will agree the goals of therapy and put together the Therapy Treatment Plan.

My approach uses a Biopsychosocial Spiritual Model, so it is very much a holistic approach. A core part of this stage is Psychoeducation – the goal of which is to help you better understand the science behind the problem. This can be liberating in itself. Those clients who have a thorough understanding of the challenges they are facing as well as the knowledge of personal coping ability, internal and external resources, and their own areas of strength are often better able to address difficulties, feel more in control and have a greater internal capacity to work towards mental and emotional well-being. The increased self-awareness from this process is one of the biggest gifts we can give ourselves and the
people around us.

Therapy Treatment Plan put into action with a new frame of reference and goals for meaningful action. Within the assessment we will have identified the strengths you have to overcome the problem and identified some new skills that will help. Utilizing
techniquessuch as guided imagery, role play, mindfulness, tapping – establishing a real mind and body connection to drive purposeful change. Each session we utilize feedback to fine tune the next session. This process relies on your commitment to act and complete tasks in between sessions that strengthen our in-session work.

“Your decisions to act are inevitable and they shape your quality of life”

Each client at the end of treatment receives a Therapy Journey Pack outlining the Therapy steps and an array of suggestions for maintaining the outcomes. Deciding to use Therapy to explore can be one of the best decisions you ever made – I time of openness to other possibilities -that can happen over a period of time.
I offer a free 15 minute follow up a month after your last treatment as I am always interested to hear where your journey is taking you.

What my patients say...

Tanya helped to calm my anxiety during lockdown via zoom. I was in the late stages of pregnancy and was experiencing anxiety about the birth as restrictions were in place re birth partners and I was afraid of being alone. I also have an underlying fear of being sick. Working with Tanya helped me to relax and make the best of a magical period in my life and I would not hesitate to turn to her in the future and would recommend her.

I have been to many different therapists to control my addiction. In a very few sessions Tanya helped me see me understand how and why I do what I do. She also included some Hypnotherapy which seemed to help me control my impulses – but also start to create a picture of where I was going. I now have the tools to take the next steps.

Male, 42 years - Addiction

Having suffered from depression most of my life I didn’t have any high expectations though I badly wanted to feel better in myself. I would highly recommend Tanya and I haven’t stopped singing her praises. Although I still have some ups and down, they don’t overwhelm me as I have the tools to deal with it now.

Male 47 years - Depression

Since the Covid pandemic I knew that I had to find an alternative method to dealing with my needle phobia which wasn’t crying, panic attacks and fainting. I thought I would never be able to feel better or even look at a needle. But through hypnotherapy and desensitisation techniques, Tanya has helped me face my fears. I’m so proud! I even had the courage to hold a needle, something I never thought would happen! She has made me feel confident, and I now don’t feel the need to avoid needles.”

Female, 26 years - Phobia

Having suffer with severe anxiety and panic disorder since I was 16 hypnotherapy was suggested to me after I had tried everything else! It has been a life saver! And it has worked, I can finally breathe again. Tanya has been fantastic understanding me and my mind and has provided me with the tools to finally live my life normally. Thank you!””

Female, 34 years Anxiety and Addiction

When I came to you, I had lost a relationship through porn and was spending way more money than I had. Now I understand the background to my addiction it has helped me in all areas of my life – including a new relationship with a much deeper level of communication

Male ,44 years - Depression and Addiction

Cheers – although I still use porn, I’ve stopped using it as much and prostitutes – I know the porn may have to go at some point but at least I now understand the science behind it and what I am up against and at least now I feel I am making choices.
