I have a Foundation Degree in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling from the University of Greenwich. This Degree has trained me in the following approaches:
Psychodynamic – Looking at how events from our past have impacted upon us and our unconscious / automatic responses. By bringing the unconscious processes forward in your mind, to unravel and work though them. Giving you choice in how your behaviours.
Humanistic/ Person Centered – Focusing on your self-worth, strength and ability to provide change in your own life, for your own needs. Valuing yourself, free from judgement in a strong therapeutic relationship.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (C.B.T.) – Helping you manage your problems, by exploring how your own thoughts can influence your emotions and behaviours. Looking at practical strategies to assist in challenging these thoughts.
Cognitive Analytical Therapy (C.A.T.) – Looking at past events and experiences, this therapy aims to understand why you feel/think/behave in certain ways. Before helping you to problem solve and develop new ways of coping.
