Areas of expertise

Sometimes it is very difficult for the client to identify the root cause of their difficulties. I have therefore attempted to provide you with a brief overview of the main areas that I specialise in, with some guideline where appropriate.


ANXIETY - (also called solicitude) is a psychological and physiological state characterized by cognitive, somatic, emotional, and behavioural components. These components combine to create the painful feelings that we typically recognize as fear, apprehension, or worry. Anxiety is often accompanied by physical sensations such as heart palpitations, nausea, chest pain, shortness of breath, stomach-aches, or headache. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is currently seen as the most effective therapy when dealing with these symptoms.

DEPRESSION - refers to both expected and pathologically chronic or severe levels of sadness, perceived helplessness, disinterest, and other related emotions and behaviours. Both clinical and non-clinical depression can also refer to a conglomeration of more than one feeling. Such a mixture can include (but is not limited to) anger, fear, anxiety, despair, guilt, apathy, and/or grief, in addition to what many people would describe as typical "sadness." Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) as developed by Aaron T. Beck was initially created to assist clients suffering from depression.

It is a severe and ongoing emotional reaction to an extreme psychological trauma. This stressor may involve someone's actual death, a threat to the patient's or someone else's life, serious physical injury, or threat to physical and/or psychological integrity, overwhelming usual psychological defenses coping. In some cases it can also be from profound psychological and emotional trauma, apart from any actual physical harm. Often, however, the two are combined.
