As a Mental Health Social Worker my practice also addresses broader social issues of housing, education and employment that impact the opportunity for quality of life for those who are impacted by mental illness and emotional distress.
Counselling Methods Used
I use an holistic approach to talking therapies. I use evidence-based approaches for specific problems and I can develop a psychological treatment plan that would be helpful to you.
I have trained in several types of therapy and I may combine these to help you because you and your specific needs are unique.
These include: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Dialectic Behavioural Therapy (DBT Narrative Therapy Family Therapy Grief and Loss Therapy Interpersonal Therapy Creative Therapy Mindfulness or Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) Life Skills Training including anger management
The Therapeutic Relationship The therapeutic relationship is key for me and I will work with you to feel comfortable and safe.
“Your comfort level with the therapist is much more important than what kind of degree that person has. Therapy is generally much more successful if you like your therapist and have a good relationship with that person.” Eric Endlich, PhD.
What Makes Talking Therapies Comfortable and Safe with Me?
Core strength of my counselling practice is my empathy and understanding, a quality that can only come through professionally acknowledging the lived experience. Apart from my qualification and professional experience I have also faced many challenging and painful situations in my life. My personal experiences and triumphs enable me to better understand what you are going through and fully support you in a non-judgemental way.
Please Note: I remain sensitive to all religious beliefs and cultures and my therapies are not based on any specific religion. Jacqueline Conroy Talking Therapies does not practice in the psychic realm.
