Whilst a variety of approaches will be used, it is important to understand that your “therapy package” is never an off-the-shelf solution. The therapy is transient – and totally bespoke. It will take its lead from your experiences, your recovery and issues that may arise along your journey. Nothing is fixed and is always subject to change to achieve the best possible outcome.

There are a number of approaches which may be utilised:

Humanistic Counselling 

This approach encourages you to have confidence in your feelings and take responsibility  for your thoughts and actions. The emphasis of this technique is on self-development, encouraging you to achieve your highest potential. You might think of it as a form of “holistic” care. Your artistic instincts could also be utilised in a humanistic counselling session and used to explore and help to resolve personal problems.

Person-centred Counselling 

Also known as non-directive counselling, this therapy explores the basis that you are the expert of your own experiences. It moves away from the idea that the therapist is the expert and encourages you to take back control. An important  part of this theory is that in a specific psychological environment, the fulfillment of your potential depends on the need to be with another person and a desire to explore other people’s thoughts and theories. It also requires a certain level of openness. We will encourage you to be open to experience, to trust and to be trustworthy.

Psycho-dynamic Counselling  

Psycho dynamic counselling focuses on the unconscious processes which manifest themselves in a person’s behavior. The goals of psycho dynamic therapy will help you to consciously understand the influence of the past on your present behavior. A psycho dynamic approach will allow you to look at unresolved experiences and situations and the symptoms that arise from this and impact on the future.

Integrative Therapy 

Integrative therapy, or integrative counselling, is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements from different therapies. Integrative therapy specialists take the view that there is no single approach that can trust each client in all situations. It often takes a mixture of techniques and approaches integrating the effective, behavioral, cognitive, and physiological systems to suit all of your very individual needs of a person because as human beings we have many needs.

Transactional Analysis Counselling  

Transactional analysis is a very widely recognised style of therapy and which involves tools designed to push personal growth. It is often thought of as an elementary medical care for well-being and for helping people reach their full potential in all aspects of life. Trasnactional analysis therapy is extremely versatile, for it can be utilised in a variety of areas and incorporates key themes from humanistic, integrative, psychoanalytic and psycho dynamic therapies. Although it is usually recognised as a short and solution-focused approach, transactional analysis can also be applied as in-depth medical care.

Gestalt Counselling  

Gestalt counselling focuses on the whole of the experience together with your feelings, thoughts and actions. You will be able to gain awareness within the ‘here and now’ by analysing your behaviour and body language and talking about repressed feelings.
