We use an eclectic range of therapeutic Interventions appropriate to the adult, family’s need and/or the child’s age, stage of development and circumstances.
Person Centred Counselling
Person-Centered Therapy uses a non-authoritative approach that allows clients to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process, they will discover their own solutions. The therapist acts as a compassionate facilitator, listening without judgment and acknowledging the client’s experience without moving the conversation in another direction. The therapist is there to encourage and support the client.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
It is directive and goal achieving intervention. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. Homework and tasks to do in-between sessions may be given.
Systemic Family work
Family Work will typically take place in the form of sessions in which individuals and your loved ones will be brought together with a Systemic Family Practitioner to discuss the issues that are affecting your relationships. These sessions – and the family techniques used – will be adapted to the therapy goals and the ages, needs, resources and preferences of the individuals involved.
Emotional Freedom Technique
Your body is made up of energy flowing round and round through invisible lines called MERIDIANS, if this energy flows well and freely you will feel well and happy. Sometimes the energy gets stuck and it cannot move freely, then you may feel scared, sad or even ill. You can tap on the points to set the blocked energy free and reduce overwhelming feelings.
Identifying complicated grief is a term used when a bereaved child/young person/adult appears to be “stuck” in their grieving process or has become a way of life, unable to move forward through their grief. Unexpected bereavement, suicide and traumatic deaths can be further complicated for children and young people and families.
Grief is a natural response to the death of someone close and everyone will experience grief in a unique and individual way. Although there are no limits as to how long grieving should last and what it should consist of however if exhibiting complicated bereavement, therapeutic work with that person or family would help to “unblock” the stuckness and allow the grieving process to continue in a more healthy and natural process.
