Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy/Psychotherapy (CBT/CBP)
CBT is often chosen by individuals who are dealing with issues such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and eating disorders. It’s typically selected for those who want to quickly identify and challenge harmful thought patterns, as it’s typically a short-term, goal-oriented therapy. CBT can provide practical strategies and tools for managing negative thoughts and behaviours.
Person-Centred Therapy is often chosen by individuals who want to explore their feelings and emotions in a supportive, non-judgemental environment. It’s particularly beneficial for those who want to improve their self-esteem and self-worth, and for those who are dealing with identity or self-image issues. This approach can help individuals to better understand themselves and their relationships with others.
Psychodynamic Therapy is often chosen by individuals who want to understand how their past experiences influence their current behaviours. It’s particularly beneficial for those dealing with long-standing issues rooted in their past, or those who want to understand the root cause of their emotional distress. This approach can help individuals to resolve their internal conflicts and improve their self-awareness.
Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
SFBT is often chosen by individuals who are looking for quick, targeted solutions to specific issues. It’s particularly effective for those dealing with behavioural problems, relationship issues, or career-related challenges. This approach can help individuals to focus on the future, develop practical solutions, and achieve their goals.
Mindfulness-Based Therapies are often chosen by individuals who want to reduce stress, manage anxiety, and improve their overall mental wellbeing. It’s particularly beneficial for those who want to live more in the present moment and develop a better relationship with their thoughts and feelings. This approach can help individuals to develop mindfulness skills that can be applied in everyday life.
Integrative Therapy is often chosen by individuals who have complex or multiple issues that may not be adequately addressed by a single therapeutic approach. It’s particularly beneficial for those who want personalised therapy that is tailored to their unique needs and circumstances. This approach allows the therapist to draw from a range of techniques to provide the most effective treatment.
Each of these techniques offers unique benefits and can be effective for different types of issues. However, it’s not typically the client’s role to select a specific approach. Instead, our experienced counsellors use their professional judgement and expertise to choose the most appropriate techniques based on the client’s needs, preferences, and therapy goals.
At Absolute Mind, I’m committed to providing the best possible support for my clients. I draw from a wide range of counselling techniques to ensure that our approach is tailored to each individual’s unique circumstances.
