Person centred therapy
This is also known as humanist counselling and forms the basis of my therapy. This means that I work with the core conditions of empathy, acceptance and honesty. This style of counselling underpins the nature of my work and can lead to a greater sense of self-awareness and insight, personal growth and change.
Cognitive behavioral therapy
CBT focuses on current problems and difficulties. Together we will set out your goals and therapy will be structured to help you change any negative thoughts or behaviors you may have about yourself, relationships or life situations.
This approach stresses the importance of the unconscious and past experience shaping current behavior. Together we will look at childhood relationships with parents and other significant people and I will focus on the dynamics of our relationship to look for patterns of relating that may be happening outside of the therapeutic relationship.
