Victoria uses a client centred approach to tailor therapy for each individual and the unique difficulties they face. The development of a warm and authentic relationship is the basis from which Victoria works. It is from this strong base that individuals feel supported to explore unresolved suffering and to understand repeating patterns of behaviour that no longer serve them.
Coming from a clinical background Victoria has extensive training and experience in applying a range of therapies. Victoria integrates several evidence-based therapies including mindfulness-based therapies, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, and emotion-focussed couples therapy. In addition, Victoria has a particular interest in psychodynamic approaches that assist individuals to overcome long-standing barriers to fulfilling relationships.
In addition to symptom reduction, Victoria's clients often report:
Understanding self-defeating behaviours
Overcoming barriers to satisfying relationships
Reconnecting with inner strengths and resources
A greater sense of life meaning and well-being
