Which approaches to Therapy are most helpful?

It can be confusing and difficult to understand what is meant by the various terms used to describe the different models of therapy or indeed which particular model might best suit a specific problem. Most therapists tend to use a variety of approaches with which they feel comfortable.

The following is a list of approaches which I use regularly in my work with clients although I would of course, explain and discuss any approach in detail before using it. In the early stages I tend to use a person centred approach to encourage a client to explore the difficulty or difficulties currently being experienced. (More detailed information can be sent on request).

· Person Centred Approach

· Cognitive Behavioural approaches including Relaxation, Guided Imagery & Mindfulness.

· EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing)

· Ego State approaches including Transactional Analysis and Sub-personalities

· Psychodynamic (essentially linking past to present)

· Problem solving approaches

· Solution focused brief therapy
