Which bucket would your therapy style fit into primarily?
I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Person centred therapy.
What’s that defining feature of your approach to therapy?
For me, whatever a client does, is never good or bad. My approach stays neutral.
The way you think defines an action. My major approach is managing those irrational thoughts.
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.
Person-centred therapy: Uses a non-authoritative approach that allows clients to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process, they will discover their own solutions. The therapist acts as a compassionate facilitator, acknowledging the client’s experience without moving the conversation in another direction.
