Counsellor

Integrative Counselling.

Integrative counselling uses a range of techniques such as Gestalt and Transactional  Analysis and Person-centered therapy to deliver a Humanistic therapy. The fundamental approach in this technique is a belief that we all strive towards goals and at some point they get blocked or a significant event happens and this causes us to stop moving towards self-actualisation. Humanistic therapies believe that everybody has the resources to heal themselves.

What to expect.

Using a person-centered approach, means we will work very much at your pace and with what you bring into the session. It is a much more organic approach and is suited to people who are unsure of what to explore in therapy, who perhaps wish to have a gentler introduction and pace to their counselling. Emphasis is placed on facilitating the best possible environment for therapeutic change to happen and that the client knows best.


Cognitive

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is probably the counselling technique you have already heard about. It is based around exploring how your thoughts or cognitions impact on your feelings and behaviour. It is based on the premise that if you learn to change unhealthy ways of thinking then you can change the way you feel and act.

What to expect.

When using C.B.T as your mode of therapy you can expect to have a very structured session. C.B.T uses homework and activities outside the therapy session, clients can expect to spend time outside of the session working on assignments designed to challenge faulty belief systems.. It is very direct and focused. It is especially useful for people who like to feel like they are ‘doing something’ or wish to learn approaches and techniques to deal their concerns. Clients and counsellors work collaboratively to effectively deal with issues.


Supervision

Clinical supervision using the 7 eyed model.

What to expect.

A safe space to explore your client work.
