Therapies used in a Counselling Session
Depending on the issue, a single or combination of techniques from different therapies may be used with Person-Centred Therapy, in agreement with the client, to address their particular concerns.
They may include but will not be limited to the following:
· Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): focuses on cognitive and behavioural strategies as the central components of therapeutic change.
· Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): focuses on experiential strategies, incorporating an acceptance of here-and-now experiences.
· Solution Focused Therapy: is a future-focused, goal-oriented therapeutic approach that focuses on client strengths.
· Narrative Therapy: proposes that people create meaning in their lives by creating stories about their lives and the lives of those around them.
The counselling process evolves as per the needs and wishes of the client, and the techniques suggested depend on what underlying issues are uncovered during sessions.
