Counselling Models & Approaches

 All Therapies listed are available : £30 per session

  • Behavioural Therapy

    This Therapy is based on the belief that behaviour learned in response to past experiences can be unlearned or reconditioned without the need for analysing the past to find the reason for a particular behaviour pattern.

  • Cognitive Therapy

    Based on the theory that previous experiences can damage the self image and can affect attitude, emotions and the ability to cope with certain situations. It works by helping clients to identify, question and change poor mental images of themselves thereby changing negative responses and behaviour patterns.

  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

    Combines Cognitive and Behavioural techniques by teaching clients to change thoughts and expectations. It is effective for stress related ailments, phobias, obsessions, eating disorders and depression.

  • Person Centred Therapy

    Used when a client seeking help in the resolution of a problem works with a Counsellor who is sufficiently accepting and permissive to allow the client to express any emotions and feelings. This enables the client to come to terms with negative feelings and develop inner resources. The goal is for the client to be themselves as a person with the power and freedom to change, rather than as an object.

  • Integrative Therapy

    Involves using several distinct models of Counselling and Psychotherapy together.

  • Psychodynamic Therapy

    This approach stresses the importance of the Unconscious and past experience shaping current behaviour. The client is encouraged to talk about childhood relationships with their parents and other significant people. It is effective in helping clients challenge deep seated beliefs and behaviours.

  • Transactional Analysis

    Helps clients become more self-aware of the different Ego states (Child and Adult aspects), and how they affect behaviour patterns.

  • Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT)

    Similar to CBT, this approach involves a Counsellor being more challenging and less empathic towards a client. Often used with addiction treatments and other dependency issues such as gambling.
