In Freud’s day, psychoanalysis involved years of regular, intensive sessions of dream and thought interpretation by an expert analyst. However, many of today’s psychotherapeutic approaches tend to be more focused on helping people to deal with particular issues or feelings that matter most to the client, and within a more useful period of time. The psychotherapist’s role is initially to help a client to identify what they want from therapy, and then to help them achieve their goals at a pace that feels right for that person.

Here are the therapies that we use:

Neurolinguistic Psychotherapy (NLPt)

NLPt is based on the philosophy and skills of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP). It is an integrative form of psychotherapy, drawing on and combining different methods according to what is considered most appropriate for a particular person and the issue at hand. Although it may be briefer than other approaches, the overriding concern is to work thoroughly and at the client’s pace. NLPt follows a clear process but it is tailored to each person’s needs. A skilled Neurolinguistic Psychotherapist will tailor each session’s therapy to bring about the client’s desired improvements, making it highly outcome-focused.

Timeline Therapy ™

Timeline Therapy is a Neurolinguistic process that allows people to gain freedom from negative emotions, limiting decisions and painful memories associated with the past. It is helpful for trauma, phobia, and long-standing emotional “roadblocks” that are often rooted in the past. The process is relatively brief and is managed with considerable care for emotional comfort. 


Deep relaxation may be used to enhance NLPt and Timeline Therapy work. Many clients can also benefit from learning relaxation techniques.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

The NHS considers CBT to be the most useful approach for issues like depression, anxiety and OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder). This therapy involves becoming consciously aware of how particular thoughts, beliefs and actions are creating a particular problem; finding alternatives to some of these; and then putting them into practice to bring about gradual improvement. It is a goal-oriented, step-by-step approach that involves dedication and willingness to learn and rehearse how to do things differently. Elements of CBT and NLPt can be powerfully combined to help accelerate and “bed in” the improvements.
