There are many different approaches to counselling and psychotherapy and lots of terminology used to describe them.
Essentially, whatever you call it, below is an outline of how we would try and work together.
I am an integrative practitioner, meaning I use a number of different approaches depending on the presenting situation for each client.
If specifically you feel there is something from your past that is unresolved we may work in a psychodynamic way to explore further. If there is a specific barrier now, then cognitive or solution-focused therapy could be adopted. If it is more general then a person-centred approach could be used.
It takes a commitment from both sides to have the best chance of being useful and whether that is for only one session or more is and will always remain, entirely your decision.
Just as there are many layers to people, therapy has many layers too and although it may not always be easy or enjoyable, it doesn’t always have to be dark and dreary either.
