Counselling techniques used
Person Centered Therapy - This approach focuses on past and present problems that have become an issue now. The focus is on how you are feeling now. Taking the view that every individual has the internal resources they need for growth, person-centered counselling aims to provide three ‘core conditions’ (unconditional positive regard, empathy and congruence) which help that growth to occur.
Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapy - The talking treatment focuses on how your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes affect your feelings and behavior, and teaches you coping skills for dealing with different problems. It combines cognitive therapy (examining the things you think) and behavior therapy (examining the things you do).
Attachment Therapy- refers to the ability to form emotional bonds and emphatic, enjoy relationships with other people, especially close family members. Insecure attachment early in life may lead to attachment issues and difficulty forming relationship throughout life. Often the fears and insecurities of childhood can be experienced again in adulthood, leading to feelings of unhappiness, and painful and unsafe relationships. Attachment-based therapy gives people the opportunity to experience, perhaps for the first time in their lives, a relationship where it feels safe enough to explore their fears and mourn past grief and loss .
Through a trusting relationship between the therapist and client, they will be able to explore their fears and find ways of understanding them. This would make it easier for people to form healthier relationships and help them feel more secure and in control of their lives.
