Types of Therapies

As an Integrative counsellor I use a variety of approaches to help my clients, which include:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

This focuses on thoughts, feelings and actions, helping to understand the link between each one which can affect us on a day to day basis.

Person Centred Therapy

This focuses on a person’s self worth and values.  To be valued, without being judged, and to help a person accept themselves for themselves.

Psychodynamic Therapy

This focuses on uncovering unconscious thoughts and how they affect behaviour. 

Brief Solution Focussed Therapy

This focuses on how the person copes with situations, how they have coped in the past and if this needs to be altered or changed to help in the future.

Gestalt Therapy

This focuses on the whole of person’s experience, including their thoughts, feelings and actions.

Transactional Analysis

This is based on the 3 ego states – Parent, Adult and Child.  By recognising these ego-states, a person may be able to identify how they communicate, and if this can be changed.

The idea of using these types of approaches is simply to help build a trusting, comfortable environment so that we can discuss and explore how life is for you, how you feel about things and how you react during certain situations.

Together we can work to help you find the best solutions for you!
