Which bucket would your therapy style fit into primarily?
With a belief that every individual has within them the capacity to self-determine, I use a Humanistic and insight-oriented lens with traces of Cognitive Behaviour therapy in my work.
What’s that defining feature of your approach to therapy?
Treading together, my work focuses on facilitating a warm and accepting space for you to fully explore and accept yourself without judgment.
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.
Insight oriented therapy: Insight-oriented psychotherapy is an approach to mental health counseling with a focus on helping clients to understand their own inner workings and motivations. With this therapeutic philosophy, the therapist encourages clients to examine their past relationships and the ways in which these dynamics have shaped their present.
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.
