Talking Therapy

Talking Therapy Inspirational Quote Andre Agassi

What is Talking Therapy?

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.

If you would like a specific type of talking therapy, please ask. In addition to Integrative, we are able to offer Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Person Centred Therapy

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.

If you think Person Centred Therapy could benefit you, contact us to make an appointment or discuss it further. If you don’t think a Person Centred approach is for you, perhaps you would benefit from Cognitive Behavioural therapy.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

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.

If you think CBT could benefit you, contact us to make an appointment or discuss it further. If CBT doesn’t appeal to you, perhaps a Person Centred or Integrative approach would suit you better.
