Person/Client Centred Counselling works with the belief that the clients knows what is best for them. They need time, space and facilitation from a professional and the use of the three core conditions listed below to ensure success.
According to Rogers (1979), there are three conditions that facilitate this growth: 1) Genuineness/Realness/Congruence; 2) Acceptance/Caring/Unconditional Positive Regard, and 3) Empathic Understanding.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave.
CBT cannot remove your problems but can help you manage them in a more positive way. It encourages you to examine how your thoughts affect how you feel and therefore behave.
As we look closer at our thought patterns, we can change how we feel and behave.
My counselling approach is:
CBT, Psychodynamic or Psychotherapeutic, Person Centred, and Mindfulness.
Psychodynamic or Psychotherapeutic theory is a view that
explains personality in terms of conscious and unconscious
forces, such as unconscious desires and beliefs. In the early
20th century, Sigmund Freud proposed a Psychodynamic theory according to which personality consists of the id (responsible for instincts and pleasure-seeking), the superego (which attempts to obey the rules of parents and society), and the ego (which mediates between them according to the demands of reality).Psychodynamic theories commonly hold that childhood experiences shape personality. Such theories are associated with psychoanalysis, a type of therapy that attempts to reveal unconscious thoughts and desires.
I believe that the three models I work with, I believe complement each other. I use them according to theclients needs. We work together to help you understand better and facilitate a positive outcome.
