Which bucket would your therapy style fit into primarily?
Humanistic with a bit of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
What’s that defining feature of your approach to therapy?
Empathy and relevance are integral to my approach.
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.
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.
