Our Approach

Our approach is based on a wealth of proven research. We draw on knowledge from the fields of 

Positive Psychology 

“The field of positive psychology at the subjective level is about valued subjective experiences: well-being, con- tentment, and satisfaction (in the past); hope and optimism (for the future); and flow and happiness (in the present).”

Martin E P Seligman & Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi  (2000) ( American Psychologist. APA (2000)

Emotional Intelligence

"Emotional intelligence is the ability to perceive emotions, to access and generate emotions so as to assist thought, to understand emotions and emotional knowledge, and to reflectively regulate emotions so as to promote emotional and intellectual growth."- Mayer & Salovey, 1997

Neuro Linguistic Programming (including Eriksonian Hypnosis)  

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a behavioural model linked to communication,personal development and psychotherapeutic methods devised by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the USA in the 1970’s. They identified a connection between neurological processes, language and behavioural patterns learned through experience, and found these could be changed to achieve specific goals in life. (NLP University Press)

Ericksonian  Hypnosis

“Each person is a unique individual. Hence, psychotherapy should be formulated to meet the uniqueness of the individual’s needs, rather than tailoring the person to fit the Procrustean bed of a hypothetical theory of human behavior.” – Milton H. Erickson https://erickson-foundation.org/biography/


“Though it has its roots in Buddhist meditation, a secular practice of mindfulness has entered the American mainstream in recent years, in part through the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn and his Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program, which he launched at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 1979.”
