Our approach to counselling
Firstly, our approach at the beginning will be to sit with you and listen, let you offload any issues you may be having and decide together how we can start the road to recovery. It is important to mention that there will only ever be comfort and understanding returned back to you, making it our goal as a team to get through these times. Taking our hand on your journey will provide support and comfort, no matter the issue we are here for you.
What are the different types of Counselling?
This approach uses a mixture of Humanistic Therapies and other training such as Psychodynamic and Transactional Analysis
This approach focuses on personal development where the therapist will share their own experiences. The Humanistic approach will include Gestalt, Person-centred, Existential and Core Process
This approach focuses on overcoming negative thoughts patterns that can lead to much unhappiness. CBT can be very effective for Depression, anxiety, panic attacks and eating disorders
This approach focuses on underlying causes for distress, such as family, childhood and school experience. It allows the client to explore past issues in depth
This approach includes styles such as Jungian and Psychosynthesis, which sets out to involve the whole person focusing on their emotional, physical, mental and spiritual well-being. The aim is to encourage personal growth and creativity. There is much more of a spiritual focus than in most other forms of counselling.
Getting To Know You
Building up trust and rapport. When you are ready and feel comfortable we can discuss any issues that you feel you need help with.
Explaining what is involved in counselling and how we think it can help you.
We then decide which method is right for you and will set an individual Counselling plan specifically designed for your needs.
A timescale will be discussed and we will show you our contract. If happy we will begin the Counselling.
Then it will be time for you to ask and further questions you may have before we start the Counselling.
Begin The Therapy
The Counselling will begin with support and guidance to take home, so that you are able to practise and develop skills to help you in the future.
