“Our thoughts are like the birds in the air but we don’t have to let them nest in our hair.” ~ Francis of Assissi
We tend to think a thought and then come up with a number of infinite possibilities of catastrophe and calamity. Through greater awareness of our thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and how our mind and bodies work together, we are enabled to respond in more creative and constructive ways. Therapy creates the opportunity for individuals to gain better understanding of themselves, and through this greater awareness, to then make decisions about what to do in their lives right now, what things are important to them and why, and whether change is required.
Working within a framework of Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness practice, the therapy process can be effective in assisting individuals (adolescents and adults) and couples to make sense of their unique situation and experiences and to explore their own capabilities to overcome their difficulties.
Janet also offers play therapy for children presenting with emotional or behavioural difficulties. This often involves working with parents to provide parental guidance.
