The most common form of counselling and psychotherapy is ‘talking therapy’ (as opposed to Art Therapy or Music Therapy for example).
There are many different types of talking therapy. Most Counsellors and Psychotherapists use an ‘integrative approach’, which means that they use techniques from various therapeutic approaches, to best meet the needs of their clients.
Person Centred Therapy is a talking therapy which offers you an empathic and non-judgemental environment to explore and move through your issues. It focuses on discovering why you are thinking, feeling and behaving the way you are, and supports you to make changes to improve your situation. We can offer you pure Person Centred Therapy, or a combination of this and other therapeutic approaches.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy, which is a logical, goal-oriented systematic approach to addressing psychological issues. It focuses on thoughts, feelings, behaviours and body sensations. It aims to give you tools and techniques to make positive changes in your life. We can offer you pure CBT, or a combination of CBT and other therapeutic approaches.
Your confidentiality is taken very seriously and will only be broken in extreme circumstances. For more information see our client agreement.
Our Counsellors and Psychotherapists are all members of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and adhere to the relevant code of ethics. We have a choice of Counsellors and Psychotherapists who are BACP accredited.
