Counselling

Mandy uses an Eclectic approach to therapy; an open, integrative form of psychotherapy that adapts to the unique needs of each specific client, depending on the problem, and the treatment goals.

Solution-focused brief therapy

Solutionfocused brief therapy (SFBT) places focus on a person’s present and future circumstances and goals rather than past experiences. In this goal-oriented therapy, the symptoms or issues bringing a person to therapy are typically not targeted.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy which is used to help people change thoughts, feelings and behaviors that are causing them problems.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) encourages people to embrace their thoughts and feelings rather than fighting or feeling guilty for them. ACT develops psychological flexibility and is a form of behavioral therapy that combines mindfulness skills with the practice of self-acceptance.

Existential therapy

Existential therapy is a unique form of psychotherapy that looks to explore difficulties from a philosophical perspective. Focusing on the human condition, existential therapy highlights our capacities and encourages us to take responsibility for our successes.

Personal Empowerment therapy

Personal Empowerment therapy is a process in which we gain the knowledge, skillsets and attitude needed to cope with the changing world and circumstances. It is a process of transforming powerlessness and increasing control over our own lives.

Person-Centered therapy

In Person-Centered therapy, the focus is on the person, not the problem. The goal is for the client to achieve greater independence. This will allow the client to better cope with any current and future problems they may face.
