Approach

Myles approaches therapy with a client-centred focus, valuing establishing a strong therapeutic relationship. He recognises that each individual experiences unique challenges and strives to understand their personal journeys and stories thoroughly. In addition to helping clients identify and challenge negative thought patterns, Myles also incorporates psychodynamic and logotherapy techniques into his approach. Logotherapy emphasises the importance of finding meaning and purpose in life for improved mental health and well-being. The psychodynamic component allows for exploring unconscious patterns and past experiences that may contribute to difficulties and shape current thoughts and behaviours. Through this integrated approach, Myles assists clients in gaining insight into their conscious and unconscious patterns, developing more adaptive ways of thinking, and finding meaning and purpose in their lives, leading to greater fulfilment and well-being. The warm and empathetic relationship between the client and therapist is the foundation for this transformative work.
