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.
· Congruence Counselling: A bespoke creation by the counsellor which incorporates psychotherapy, art therapy (colour transformation), person-centred counselling, neuro linguistic programming, focus on rewirements, challenging the client, identify patterns and work with clients on a way forward with affirmations, goals and milestones. A minimum of 6 sessions are required.
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.
