In my coaching and counselling work I draw from a number of evidence-based psychological theories and methods including:

  • Acceptance and commitment therapy
  • Cognitive behaviour therapy
  • Control theory: how people self-regulate
  • Developmental theory:¬† how people develop perspective and make meaning
  • Goal theory: how people set and attain goals (and why effective goal setting is more than setting SMART goals)
  • Meaning-centred therapy: logotherapy
  • Person-centred (humanistic) approaches
  • Positive psychology and strengths based approaches
  • Self-determination theory: how autonomy,¬†competency and connectedness enhances wellbeing
  • Theories of change: how to help people change and manage the things that get in the way
  • Solution-focussed approaches
