Alyssa has a warm and understanding attitude toward all people and works collaboratively with her clients to achieve their desired changes. She uses well-researched methods and pays particular attention to achieving and maintaining therapeutic goals.
Alyssa has a special interest in working with issues related to family of origin, as well as perinatal mental health.
Alyssa has a solid background in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and primarily practices Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Schema Therapy.
ACT essentially is about accepting the things that we cannot control, whilst committing to action that promotes a rich and meaningful life. As well as having a strong evidence base in the treatment of psychological problems, it also has an application to those seeking to improve their quality of life.
Schema Therapy is very helpful in addressing underlying patterns of thought, feeling and behaviour and involves working with childhood history.
