Psychological Assesment
NLPtCA Psychotherapy is
NLPtCA Psychotherapy is a specialised form of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP).

This form of Psychotherapy is based on the idea that we work from, and react to, the world as we construct it from our own experience, rather than directly from the "real world".

We work on the basis that each one of us builds our own unique models or maps of the world and although such maps are genuine to us as individuals, no one's map is fully able to represent the "real world".

It is a way of exploring how people think, by modeling behaviour, identifying success and then applying these successful actions and benefits in ways that work.

It draws on concepts from many areas of psychology and psychotherapy and has proved to be practical and effective in a wide range of applications and situations.

It is designed to achieve outcomes for clients who want to positively alter the impact of their own life experiences and understand how and why, we do what we do.

It is particularly effective for those who want to experience a greater sense of self-control and learn to measure their own progress and success.

It is also for those who would prefer to avoid to run the risk of being re-traumatised by the therapeutic experience itself.

What happens:
You will be helped to identify and build what we call your Desired state, or goal.

It is the blueprint for how you would like to react.

You'll then be shown how to use your own skills and resources to achieve your desired state or goal.

This enables you to safely experiment with changing beliefs that might have been limiting your success.

By identifying more appropriate beliefs, you'll improve your insight, recognise that you have more choices to make and make the best ones for you.

How does it work?
We don't intend to, but we often don't know that when we think about things, we activate three processes that help us create our own understanding of what's happening.

These processes are called "deletion", "generalisation" and "distortion"'

For example:
When we "delete" we choose to ignore the existence or relevance of some of our experiences

When we "generalise" we create general rules from single experiences.

When we "distort" we create meanings from and between experiences that may not have been meant, may not be accurate and may no longer be particularly helpful.

They are three filters through which we test not only our response to what's happening in the world around us, but also our response to the world "inside" our heads.

Associated with each of these processes is a physical and emotional holding pattern which we can observe simply as an ongoing stream of behaviour.

By attending closely to the words you use, your body language and behaviour, we'll be able to enable you to discover how you've created who you are, what you'd like to change and enable you to do it.

It's impossible ever to say how long therapy might take for each person. The process of change is continuous and if you are reading this, has probably already started for you.


  Psychotherapy Supervision is  

Psychotherapy Supervision
Is a very necessary pre-requisite for the work that all psychotherapists do. It provides an opportunity for them to reflect upon their own reactions to their work and learn through the discussions that arise.

It is usually for practicing psychotherapists and/or those in training who want to maintain and improve the quality of the work they undertake with clients.

Psychotherapists seeking this service are normally affiliated to professional organisations who require the psychotherapists to be actively involved in a continuous state of self-appraisal and development, both of themselves, and of the work they do with their clients.

As a member for ten years and Chair of the North West Regional Psychotherapy Association for four years, I have a broad experience and respect for the psychotherapeutic process itself.

I am registered as a Neuro Linguistic Psychotherapy & Counseling Association (NLPtCA) Psychotherapist with the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP) and am experienced in working as a supervisor of psychotherapists from other disciplines.
