Talking therapies at SEAcotherapy predominantly take place outdoors, utilising the sea as co-therapist. Research shows us that being near the coast provides a sense of health and wellbeing so at SEAcotherapy we aim to harness these qualities by facilitating health, wellbeing, development and growth along the coastline.
Dr. Victoria Galbraith utilises modern psychological evidence-based methods to support individuals (adults and young people) through their difficulties and crises. An initial assessment of need will take place indoors, followed by SEAcotherapy outdoors.
Dr Galbraith is an integrative practitioner, which means that she has a variety of approaches in her toolbox and tailors her approach to suit individual clients. The approaches available to her include humanistic therapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy (which stems from Freud's psychoanalysis), eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) and mindfulness based approaches.
Victoria's approach is grounded in humanism, which means that the relationship that you develop with her forms an integral part of her work. She will therefore treat you with respect and will not judge you in any way but will allow you the space to discuss whatever is on your mind.
