Therapeutic Approaches 

  • A Psychotherapist is concerned with the analysis (and the meaning) of life as it is experienced and managed by a person. This professional has trained at a post-graduate level for many years and would have had about three years practice experience prior to full qualification. As this work implies significant complexity and depth, a long-term process is usually required.

  • A Counsellor has specific training in counselling theory and skills, as well as some clinical experience. This practitioner would usually conduct short- and medium-term work, either focusing on a particular aspect of the person’s life or acting as an active and empathetic listener to accompany someone undergoing trying times with patience and positive regard.

  • A Coach could have a background in a more dynamic milieu like the behavioral approaches to human psychology, business or sports, and it generally appeals to the working environment due to its pragmatic approach to resolve issues. It tends to be short-term and is directed toward particular outcomes.

  • “Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is an integrative model of therapy. It allows you to reprocess traumatic memories through bilateral stimulation of the brain thereby allowing peace and closure for the traumas experienced. It is a highly effective method of treatment that can be used for mild traumas as well as extreme ones, such as those individuals suffering from PTSD. Its results can have profound changes for the individual for past traumas which subsequently allow them to shift in the way they engage with the world today.” By Muneeza Khimji >

  • Sex therapy is used to treat psychological sexual problems. Sex therapy is an integrative therapy which uses various modalities such as:

    • Behavioural: Sensate Focus (Masters & Johnsons)
    • Psychodymanic (childhood)
    • Medical (the physiology of sexual functioning)
    • Transactional Analysis (the relationship with ourselves and others)

    Sex therapy involves a psychological exploration of problems in the consultations and also some home assignments in between consultations.

    Sex therapy has a good success rate for both individuals and couples.

  • Very few people grow up in conditions that are perfect for them. Some are constrained by their environment. Others experience unexpected, traumatic events that alter their outlook on life. As a psychodynamically orientated therapist I believe that our past experiences, especially in childhood influence how we see and interact with the world as adults. Some of these beliefs we have are conscious and others are unconscious. These unconscious beliefs can sometimes lead us into situations we would rather not be in and at times lead to exasperation; “how did I end up here again”?.
    My job is to help my clients to become more conscious of some of these beliefs so that they have more choice over their actions. I’m here to listen and give you a place where you can feel safe and heard. I’m committed to helping you achieve a better understanding of yourself.

  • “Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a form of talk therapy that allows you to manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave at the same time. It focuses on your thoughts and beliefs and how they affect the choices you make. Through CBT the therapist will help you identify negative thinking patterns and behaviours and help you shift them so that you are engaging with your world and the people within your world in a positive and constructive way. It provides you with a tool box of coping skills that you can draw upon at any time to deal with the challenges you may be facing in the moment. This tool box remains with you even after you complete your therapy and thus it can be used at any time. CBT can be a long- and short-term therapy.” By Muneeza Khimji >

  • The Fine Art of Play
    Once upon a time play was commonplace in the lives of adults. Then we got too busy. Successful people tend to be particularly busy. Research shows that the downside of the ultramodern lifestyle is ‘too much work and not enough play’. And yet when adults do put in the time and effort to be creative and playful, they feel great straight away.

    There is an uplift. They report a new, relaxed confidence, optimism, calmness and a general feeling of peace and power. They even say it helps their relationships. This chimes with the findings of modern psychology whereby play is commonly regarded as the perfect therapy for stressed humanity.

    Creative exploration provides the opportunity to stand back, and take space and provides you with an opportunity; to look at things from different angles. Drawing, painting, movement, role playing and even just conversation – which, of course, is a fine art. Straightforward ‘talking’ forms of therapy are part of Aya’s arsenal; she has studied and practised Jungian psychotherapy and Rogerian Humanistic Psychology. And is a big believer in art & play. Your inner child, your subconscious, your restless soul, your need for fun: Art & Play caters to the whole person and can lead anywhere. The transpersonal artistic process is an empathetic process built around trust, open mindedness (freedom from judgement), open-heartedness (empathy) and an open-willingness (mutual commitment). And has the potential to shed light on particular issues, problems, or challenges at present or which arise repetitively.

    It is relief from heavy adulthood; child-like, as opposed to childish. And it is revealing. When clients discuss their creative projects – even the most ill-formed scribble – they often confront issues in their lives from whole new angles. They sometimes even resolve those core issues, faster than conversational therapy alone.
