 Therapy Style 

Which bucket would your therapy style fit into primarily?

My therapeutic approach is a Humanistic/Existential form of therapy. My primary approach which I employ is Narrative Therapy from a trauma informed lens.

What’s that defining feature of your approach to therapy?

 

I believe Mental health concerns are drawn from structural factors and are deeply systematic in nature. In the process of therapy, collaboration plays an integral role where the client is seen as an expert of his/her/their life. Since every client enters therapy with a ‘problem’ story, as a therapist my work is aimed at exploring and strengthening multiple/alternative stories based on the values and skills an individual possesses/explores.

Humanistic approach: Focuses on a person’s individual nature, rather than categorizing groups of people with similar characteristics as having the same problems. Humanistic therapy looks at the whole person, not only from the therapist’s view but from the viewpoint of individuals observing their own behaviour.

 

Existential therapy: Existential therapy focuses on free will, self-determination, and the search for meaning—often centering on you rather than on the symptom. The approach emphasizes your capacity to make rational choices and to develop to your maximum potential.

Narrative therapy: Uses the power of stories to help people discover their life purpose. Through narrative therapy, one can begin to identify alternative stories that offer them an opportunity to challenge judgment and explore what other information they are carrying within them.
