What to expect from your session with Peta:

“When meeting a client for the first time, my goal is to provide them with an environment that is supportive and comfortable, free from judgement, where they can explore what has brought them to seek support and identify their goals for therapy.

When working along side my clients, I draw upon the frameworks of empirically supported Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness and Interpersonal Therapy. My aim is to increase their self awareness and for them to develop a greater understanding of the driving forces motivating their current set of thinking and behavioural patterns that may be leading to emotional and psychological instability.  By developing insight, they can then start the journey towards self-discovery and begin making meaningful and long lasting changes in their lives. I believe that the goal of therapy is to empower people to become the instigators of change in their own lives.

At times life is tough, and it’s not that we don’t have the ability to meet the demands placed upon us, we just run out of the capacity to respond. Your battery becomes empty and you just can’t find the recharger! Psychological coaching is a supportive process that applies the principles of positive psychology, which is to enhance wellbeing in the absence of ill health. If you engage in this process will get the opportunity to explore your core values & beliefs, set meaningful goals and develop positive strategies to help recharge your battery, improve your resilience and reach your targets.
