My background is in Nursing, Midwifery and Mental Health. In searching for a therapy that had empirical evidence, and was firmly based on Attachment Theory, I found ISTDP. I now work in private practice. I work collaboratively with patients so they can get to the cause of their suffering, as quickly as possible so they can experience deeper closer relationships with their loved ones.

    Emotionally Focused Therapy, ISTDP

    ISTDP (Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy)

    ISTDP is a brief talk focused therapy, that has shown to be effective with a wide range of psychological problems. It works from the theory that most psychological problems arise for broken attachment bonds as children. Defences are built up to avoid the feeling about the broken attachment, including, depression, anxiety, compulsive behaviour ,and many physical complaints that have no medical explanation.

    10 Questions with M.Rose Hoey

    • What led you to choose psychotherapy or counselling as a profession?

    • I am a Registered Nurse and Midwife who does counselling and Psychotherapy. I found that as patients talked about their problems and difficulties, the only tools I had available were to reframe their circumstances, and offer Cognitive behaviour therapy to cope with their health or relationship problems. Fortunately I was referred by a friend to ISTDP, I then found I had the tools to talk to both an anxious mother, or an ill patient. Since 2010 I have focused on providing ISTDP therapy.
    • Which philosophical approaches have influenced your professional/personal development?

    • Attachment Theory, Psychodynamic Theory and Neuroscience give me the confidence to know that patients can make character changes in a short period of time. And that as an ISTDP therapist these are the required characteristics of the therapeutic model. ISTDP Core Training is a three year program, I have also attended further training in Vancouver, Oxford, Norway, Halifax and to Davanloo, the Psychiatrist who developed this model in the 1960 in Montreal.
    • Which particular aspects of health or the human journey are you interested in?

    • I have been privileged in my career to support patients from conception and birth, to old age. My focus has been on enabling patients to live as fully as possible no matter what their circumstances.
    • What method/s do you use?

    • I use ISTDP (Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy) Emotion focused, about feeling, especially those feeling that have been suppressed out of fear of displeasing their early caregivers. Patients find emotional freedom once they realise, that all emotional feeling are feelings in themselves, and are not dangerous unless they are discharged inappropriately.
    • When do you think the client will start to feel that progress is being made?

    • I would expect that the patient would have some understanding of their suffering after the first two hour session. They would then be able to track their progress themselves, as their ability to tolerate the situations that previously caused their anxiety and suffering decreased.
    • How has therapy made you a better person?

    • Being an ISTDP therapist has deepened my compassion and empathy for the patient and myself. It has honed my listening skills, my observation skills when I experience my mirror neutrons firing, as my patient experiences their grief and sadness about how they may have spent a lifetime disregarding their own feelings.
    • What do you like most about being a therapist?

    • I feel privileged and honoured to be trusted enough to sit with another human beings while they open up their unconscious and examine their lives.
    • Do you ever have 'bad hair' days?

    • A bad hair day would mean going to the hair dresser! But if you mean do I find my work causes me to suffer? the answer is NO!
      Sometimes it takes many tries/sessions for patients to open themselves up to facing their disavowed feelings, but I know if they are willing to work, so am I.
    • What do you think is the most significant problem we face, in the world today?

    • I would like to see more compassion and love freely available to and in all sentient beings. "Love one another."
    • Can you share the name of a book, film, song, event or work of art that inspires you?

    • The first book that comes to mind is "Mans Search for Meaning" by Victor Frankl
      "An Interrupted Life, the Letters and Diaries of Etty Hillesum"
      both these books speak of the powerful spirit in Human Beings.
