I have been a clinical psychologist for 37 years and a Management Consultant for 20 of them. In the therapy work I do here, I have experienced a profound change in the last few years.
I have some amazing new techniques that have revolutionized the way I work, the results I get and the time frame in which I get them. They are: Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT), Eye Movement Integration, (EMI) and Brainspotting, (BSP).
These models work extraordinarily well with stress, trauma, sexual abuse, anxiety, bullying, grief, substance abuse, phobias, self-esteem and career issues.
They function at a much deeper level than normal talk psychotherapy, i.e. they work neurologically and in the body.
By 'neurologically' I mean that the brain is - at a simplified level - divided into 3 parts; the Neocortex, where we think, the Limbic System, where we experience feeling and the Brainstem, (often called the Reptillian Brain - because it is the most primitive part of the brain) where our fight-flight response is activated.
'Talk therapy', where you discuss all of your problems with your therapist, mostly activates the Neocortex and the Limbic System. This is very useful when you are discussing a strategy to manage your difficult boss or how to be more skillful in getting your needs met in your marriage, or alternative career decisions, but it doesn't deal with the trauma you experience when your boss abuses you or when your partner abandons you.
Everyone has had their fight-flight response activated by at least one of these: hurt and pain and stress and trauma and this is where the neural therapies are so powerful.
With Neural Therapies I can usually resolve deep seated issues within 2-10 sessions.
If you had told me this in the past, I would have thought that you were crazy. I have had hundreds of clients who have benefitted from this form of therapy in ways they would never previously have dreamed of.
I also use a method called Interactional Pattern Analysis (IPA) to help ascertain where the therapy needs to be focused to get the best results. Before I had this method, I would go more on intuition or the clients expressed need, whereas this technique now enables a for more scientific approach to which intervention to use when, increasing the likelihood of symptomatic relief exponentially.

I can honestly say that your Self-Esteem work has given me tools that I feel I have been searching for my whole life. It has changed my perception of people and my behaviour in any relationship – be it old or new.
Before doing the Self-Esteem work, I would always act in a way that would be trying to get other person to like me. I would always put them before me. Their happiness, their needs, their wants etc. It left me feeling hollow and unfulfilled.
I now see myself as full.
And it is not about whether they will like me – it is “do I like them?” I put my wants and needs first. And it is from this full place that I am able to give of myself more authentically. I find I now walk away feeling full / balanced / and ease with myself.
Also my relationships have more meaning and I am able to connect with them on a deeper level.
