Certification in Solution-Focused Therapy
Which bucket would your therapy style fit into primarily?
I use an eclectic approach that incorporates Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, a Humanistic Approach and Existential Therapy.
What’s that defining feature of your approach to therapy?
Therapy approach should be according to the needs of the client rather than following the different theories blindly.
I work to help people find themselves and have an insight into their own understandings to build up healthy coping mechanisms. It’s important to create a healthy environment for them to feel safe and work on the issues.
Confidentiality is something that should never be compromised along with every other ethical boundary.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: Targets psychological problems by looking at learned patterns of unhelpful behaviour. Helps better understand and identify distorted thoughts and develop a better sense of confidence in one’s own abilities.
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 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.
