The Corona Pandemic has changed the world we live in, forcing us to choose many different ways of coping which, in themselves, can be perceived to be part of a bigger problem. I examine what it feels like to be part of this broken world from a perspective of trauma and addiction looking to provide stability and support while reintegrating thoughts and emotions. I offer the opportunity to discuss how we deal with the pressures of modern life from the perspective of the self. Some of the choices we make are damaging to ourselves and others, such as toxic masculinity, suicide and online addiction. I specialise in many forms of addictions such as gambling, social media and pornography along with the damage they cause to relationships.
The tools I use are primarily Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic counselling delivered either face-to-face, online, telephone or through outside “walk and talk” therapy focusing on delivering positive solutions that enable you to move forward.
I am an Operations Manager and Qualified Counsellor, two skill sets that come together well for the purpose of my work training and counselling team members as well as building robust teams and helping individuals rise to their full potential. I created Thinking Solutions as a platform to make all of that possible (www.thinkstrong.solutions): developing and delivering conflict resolution strategies, mentoring advice and stress management services.
