Hey, I’m Oly, an integrated Psychotherapist at Calm Journey Therapy. I’m often asked why I became a therapist, and I always grin contentedly and say; the need for Therapy has always been presented in a negative way, but after my own therapy through my own conflicts, I realised that therapy was the only relationship that could hold you like no other, with no judgement, emotional attachment and no agenda; a place that, if a person is willing, can get you through any turbulence you may have.
The key is acknowledging that you don’t have to suffer in silence, and even looking into the idea of coming into therapy is the hardest, but more importantly bravest step you will take. I’m not saying it will be easy, but I am saying you won’t be doing it alone.
My particular focuses in therapy include Psychodynamic Theory and Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy, which I believe can be used to help any client through their troubles, I also like to incorporate Mindfulness and Emotional Freedom Technique.
Psychodynamic therapy is an approach that involves facilitation a deeper understanding of one's emotions and other mental processes.
It works to help people gain greater insight into how they feel and think. By improving this understanding, people can then make better choices about their lives.
Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy:
REBT, is a short-term form of psychotherapy that helps you
identify self-defeating thoughts and feelings, challenge the rationality of those feelings, and replace them with healthier, more productive beliefs.
Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention to the present.
This state is described as observing one’s thoughts and feelings without judging them as good or bad.
