My Counselling Approach

Humanistic Counselling

Respecting your lifestyles and beliefs and valuing you in doing the best you can. Active listening and clarifying your verbal and non-verbal communication to enable you to make sense of your problems. Facilitating empathy, acceptance and honesty, helping you to recognise your inner qualities and potential in discovering new solutions to your problems and cope more effictively in the future. Humanistic counselling enables you to discover self direction in moving forward.

Psychotherapy Counselling

Enabling you to understand yourself in becoming aware of your past experiences and how they have shaped your personality and patterns of life in the present. Becoming aware of yourself, can help you to gain the tools to take control of your life, relationships and your future. Looking back on the past and exploring where your difficulties originated from, can help you to understand your feelings, widen your thinking and evoke a greater insight of your problem. Psychotherapy can help with deeply repressed traumas and conflicts.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

Helping you to condition your negative thoughts into positve thinking and behaviour and to become more assertive of your styles in comunnicating with others. You maybe ignoring your own rights and needs, resulting in feelings of depression and anger or experiencing aggressive behaviour or demanding characteristics, which results in alienating others. You may experience anxiety, phobias or obsessive compulsive dissorder (OCD), CBT is a behavioural focused therapy which is directive to setting your own goals and reinforment.

Transactional Analysis (TA)

As children we adapted our behaviours, thoughts and feelings to the demands and expectations of our parents/parent figures in order to feel liked/accepted, whilst also rebelled when feeling upset, fed up or angry. As adults we may replay our childhood behaviours without being aware of them, which may create a negative response or reaction to our behaviour. TA helps you to recognise and become aware of your childhood patterns of behaviour and make personal changes with new patterns, to make full use of your adult options.
