Which bucket would your therapy style fit into primarily?
I use Humanistic, Narrative and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
What’s that defining feature of your approach to therapy?
I am very willing to explore issues in therapy from the client’s point of view and give a lot of importance to their journey and their own knowledge about themselves. My sessions are very client centric.
Humanistic Therapy: 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.
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.
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.
