Together with her help, you will come to an understanding of your difficulties; what had cased them and what is maintaining them. All people are unique. Victoria does not use a ‘one size fits all’ approach to therapy. She will take the time to get to know you and tailor your therapy appropriately. She will select the most appropriate evidence-based methods, adapt them to your needs, and interactively assess how they are working for you over the course of therapy, thereby maximizing therapeutic gain.
