Health-related problems

Consequently, he understands the unique biological factors that influence the mental health and well-being of individuals who are managing acute and/or chronic health problems, and incorporates this into his interventions.

Spirituality
Tim has extensive knowledge of the importance of spirituality for many individuals and the impact that this has on mental health. Where clients indicate a preference for a spiritual-based approach, Tim is able to tailor evidence-based interventions to best meet clients’ needs. He has an expertise in working with Christians and drawing comparisons between Biblical and psychological principles; however, Tim develops his interventions based on the client’s own spiritual beliefs and is therefore able to use a spiritual-based approach for clients of all faiths.

 

Approach to Therapy

Tim’s focus is on passing on his knowledge of psychology to clients so that they have a better understanding of their problems and can independently draw upon strategies discussed to address these problems. He has a focus on Positive Psychology, which means that he not only focuses on how to reduce symptoms but also provides interventions that will improve the overall well-being of clients throughout the rest of their lives. Tim incorporates strategies from a variety of approaches (e.g., Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Family Therapy, Solution-focused Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy) to best meet each client’s preferences and goals.
