Types of Counselling

Humanistic Counselling

This allows the client to realise their own skills/strengths and to work and build on these to reach their goals. This is achieved by the ‘working relationship’ and the counsellor being:

  • Open and honest (Congruence)
  • Able to see the issue from the client’s unique perspective (Empathy)
  • Able to accept the client in a non-judgmental way (Unconditional Positive Regard)

Humanistic Counselling is open ended and therefore you chose the number of sessions you want.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a collaborative intervention which involves the client taking steps to produce change. We will discuss things in the therapy room and agree a step by step plan to modify behaviour. These steps can be practised between sessions and we can assess the changes that this practice has brought about. This is a more structured therapy both with the number of sessions and issues that will be dealt with.

Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT)

A goal-directed collaborative approach. It is about focusing on what the client wants to achieve and the steps they need to take to reach their goal.

All approaches can be used together or individually. Success in the therapy room will be down to the client and how well they get on with the process of counselling.
