Psychotherapy and Counselling Services

Short term therapy/ counselling

Kyle is trained and skilled in a number of short term behaviourally oriented treatments, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or “CBT”, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy “ACT” and motivational therapy.  Often a number of simple problem behaviours can be treated quickly and effectively with short term counselling.


Alcohol and drug assessment and treatment

Having worked for a number of years in addiction services Kyle offers assessments of alcohol, drug and gambling use, which can give you a clear idea if your use is a problem.  He can also advise on a range of change strategies and harm minimization techniques, which can motivate you to change your use, or stop all together if that is your goal.


Long term psychotherapy

Psychotherapy that addresses long standing patterns of behaviour or difficulties caused by your upbringing, childhood difficulties or trauma, serious mental illness or personality disorders can require a little longer to treat effectively.  Kyle is trained and experienced in a number of longer term therapy approaches including psychodynamic therapy, attachment focussed therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy or “DBT”.  In some cases this can involve coming more than once a week, depending on the severity of the problem and the degree of support required.


Trauma therapy

Kyle worked for many years for a specialist psychotherapy service which provided treatment for personality disorders and severe and complex trauma, including childhood sexual abuse.
