Virginia has worked across organisational and clinic settings, to assist individuals in developing skills to manage and gain enjoyment from their life. She also supports clients to lift and bolster their general feeling of wellbeing. Wellbeing is our ability to feel good and to function effectively and it impacts the confidence we need to be able to deal with our worries and concerns. High levels of personal wellbeing can enable an individual to bring strong focus and attention to each area of their life. It allows them to move through life with more ease, and manage work, relationships, and their own emotions.
Virginia works with individuals who report lower levels of wellbeing, and report a sense of being scattered, having their attention drawn in too many different directions, or report a sense of skimming through life. They may have repetitive thoughts, have trouble in switching off and feel like they are unable to relax.
Virginia’s approach to working with you to build your wellbeing, is grounded in an understanding of cognitive and behavioural approaches. She employs Rational Emotive Therapy (RET), an Emotion Focused Practise backed by science and learnings from neuroscience and neuropsychology. Combining this with cognitive reappraisal and reframing, emotional validation, empathy and compassion, Virginia takes a wholistic psychological approach to wellbeing, incorporating sleep, nutrition and lifestyle behaviours to promote good mental health. She is also a specialist in the use of psychological assessment tools to promote strengths-based development and personal growth.
