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.

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.
