Person-Centred Therapy

This counselling approach advocates that every individual has the answers to their concerns in life. Person-centred counsellors believe that each person possesses the solutions that they are looking for. With guidance, empathy and a strong therapeutic relationship, those solutions can be brought to the surface. For more information on Person-Centred Therapy, please click here.

Transactional Analysis

This model is very useful for relationships. Through analysis and communication, both participants within the therapeutic relationship (client and counsellor) can discuss how the client interacts with other people. For more information on Transactional Analysis, please click here.  

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

The CBT approach believes thoughts, feelings and behaviour are all interconnected. Negative thoughts can occur in a 'vicious circle' and can result in adverse feelings and behaviour. This therapy looks at negative thought patterns and attempts to guide an individual into changing their way of thinking about a particular event or concern.
