The most commonly known is CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). Which addresses your thoughts and patterns of behaviour, therapy can assist to ‘change the rules’ and lead to you reacting in a healthier and more acceptable way. It can be effective with stress and anxiety, obsessive behaviour, and self-esteem.
we can experience many other reactions to issues, e.g. emotions and feelings, physiological reactions. ‘Gestalt’ based approaches can be used to explore current and past events, how you have ‘learnt’ to react in certain ways to situations and seek to find healthier ways for your future. We can have some effective coping mechanisms that serve us well at the time, but in reality store ‘unfinished business’ that can cause adverse reactions to other life events. Therapy can assist to identify the symptoms and causes, providing new healthier ways of reacting.
Body Process Counselling is about drawing your awareness to physiological reactions to psychological conditions. For example: “When I think about it, I get a tightness in my chest.” “My shoulders are weighed down with worry.” “I’ve a knot in my stomach.” Therapy can help you to explore these reactions, the causes and develop new ways to react healthier in the future.
Our core beliefs, values and principles can be challenged and questioned, even our purpose and existence. Transformational therapy can assist to explore these core issues in a safe and non-judgemental way.
