TSF Counselling - How counselling helps and types of Counselling available in Northampton

Types of Counselling/Psychotherapy


The types of counselling that I use include Psychodynamic and Systemic approaches incorporated with other theories such as Transactional Analysis, Gestalt Theory and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.


Psychodynamic approach: is drawn from the Freudian ideas for therapy and counselling.


  • The emphasis being  the  unconscious/ sub-conscious mental-processes.
  • The developmental stages we all go through
  • Childhood experiences that influence the here & now
  • Structure of the personality
  • Transferences-Counter-transferences & projections


Systemic approach looks at the context. It is a way to look at the parts that make up the systems.


  • The systems that evolve in relationships between experiences, behaviours and people.
  • By telling your story it can help to look at these influences and deconstruct them and  then reconstruct to give a differing more manageable meaning.


By combining these two significant theoretical approaches the work can help deal with the intra and inter issues.


I can also employ Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR) techniques. EMDR theory can help in areas of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Phobias,  Past Sexual abuse and many other traumatic events. This is a specialised way of working which can enable healing of dysfunctionally stored traumatic or distressing memories, enableing the individual to respond adaptively in the present.


I am also experienced in NLP, CBT, TA, Client centred and Solution Focus.


I am also able to offer Hypnotherapy which can be helpful in dealing th areas such as: sleep, anxiety, confidence, weight, eating habits, phobias, pain, smoking and more.
