At the Cirencester Hypnotherapy & Health Centre we offer various types
- Integrative Counselling (Jane Fizor and Helen King)
Integrative Counselling brings together different elements of specific therapies as integrative therapists take the view that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. Integrative therapy is how the therapist combines elements of different theories to tailor the therapy to the client. This approach can help you by: - Deepening your understanding of problematic feelings and behaviours and where they may originate - Making links between thoughts, feelings and behaviours - Increasing your self awareness - Encouraging you to think more clearly about a situation or from a different perspective.
- Psychodynamic Counselling (Christine Allan)
This model is based on an understanding of the unconscious processes which underlie psychological difficulties. One of the main ideas in psychodynamic therapies is that we tend to bury painful experiences (“out of sight out of mind”). Using this style of therapy the therapist helps the client resolve their own conflicts.
- Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) (Christine Allan)
DIT is a brief 16 week psychodynamic therapy targeted particularly at relieving symptoms of depression and anxiety. This therapy aims to help people have a better understanding of the links between their depression and what is happening in their relationships.
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) (Christine Allan)
CBT helps clients by identifying unhelpful thinking patterns. It is possible to help with common psychological disorders. When thinking processes are adapted to be more helpful, behavioural change is often achieved, and the individual finds themselves with healthier emotional functioning i.e. they feel happier!
