Some people come to therapy because they feel they have lost the sense of who they are by bending themselves into who they think their partner, boss or parents need. Others come feeling unable to handle a traumatic event, or cope with unbearable circumstances that have slowly built over years. It might be a difficult period at work, a redundancy or retirement that is unfulfilling, a troubling relationship, infidelity or bereavement- whatever it is, figuring a way out and building a way to cope and reconnect with joy is achievable.
Transitions and adversity will enter all our lives, sometimes we can face into them, sometimes we become overwhelmed or catastrophise, leading to anxiety and depression. Ailis has spent 15 years working through combinations of applied psychology, psychotherapy and executive coaching to lead you to a stronger more positive mindset, ready to make changes that matter.
Using with a combination of assessment, psycho-education, psychotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy, you can tackle your life more clearly, handling your issues with agency and acceptance. It is never too late to reform or too early to intervene in your life choices.
Having had an interesting career in corporate life, Ailis transitioned to becoming an executive coach and then a psychologist and psychotherapist. She completed a two-year fellowship at the Institute of Coaching, McLean Hospital, Harvard, an MSc in Psychlogy at the University of Surrey and an FdSc in Counselling at the University of Greenwich. Ailis concluded her psychotherapy training at The Priory Hospital. Trained across several modalities (CBT, Transactional Analysis, Humanistic counselling, Gestalt, Psychodynamic Therapy) Ailis will assess which approach will work best for the combination of issues and environments you bring.
In your first session you will meet and discuss what you are looking for maybe short-term focused solution led therapy or open-ended therapy for more complex cases. What's most important is to get a sense of whether Ailis can help, whether it would be useful to you to work together.
