Alongside my clinical work, I am currently conducting doctoral research into the inclusion of photography in the psychological therapies. I am interested in exploring ways to combine the therapeutic use of photographs with other approaches, to develop an integrated model of therapy which may enhance emotion processing and thus contribute to therapeutic change.
In a nutshell, what is Psychotherapy?
“Psychotherapy is mainly a matter of mutual exploration of emerging meanings. Most techniques are means of diminishing fear and of promoting courage to engage in a joint exploration in which two or more people venture into the unknown alone and yet also together” – Robert F. Hobson
