When applied skilfully, counselling/psychotherapy can be one of the most effective tools for rebuilding, discovering and strengthening psychological and emotional well- being. Counselling can enable and equip you with new-found knowledge, self-awareness and a capacity to improve your life in many ways.
At Bulb Therapy I provide Integrative Counselling. This enables me to offer you an expansive range of effective techniques, which we can tailor to suit your needs and learning style. Integrative Counselling enables us to work together using different therapies to achieve your goals. Some of the therapies used are listed below:
*Person Centred Therapy
This type of therapy places you, the client at the centre. You are the expert of you and this therapy focuses on the awareness, the conscious ways that you may see yourself as oppose to the counsellor’s interpretation. It is a non directive approach in which helps to connect you with your real self, when given the right conditions and unconditional positive regard. Its aim is to help you get in touch with your inner values and sense of self worth.
This approach focuses on understanding how you communicate with yourself and how this has and is impacting past and present relationships. This therapy can help enhance your awareness of your internal dialogues which in turn can reveal coping mechanisms and strategies that may now not be useful or appropriate at this present time. Developing this awareness can help you to identify the changes you would like to make within yourself , resulting in positive changes and experiences within your life.
This therapy tends to focus more on your present experiences as oppose to your past. It’s aims is to develop your awareness with your current choices and create freedom and autonomy from your restrictive thoughts. It can help you to find your meaning with life and your own existence and enable you to feel empowered when taking response “ability” in decision making.
The concept of this approach is ” wholeness”. It focuses on your process, what is happening, rather than the narrative or content. The aim is to help you become aware of what you are doing , how you can change and how you can learn to accept yourself.
Integrative Counselling can help you to resolve, understand and accept a wide range of issues which maybe causing you concern or distress, such as self- injury, anxiety or depression to name a few. It can help you to find your meaning, self-awareness and self-worth to help develop your relationships, achieve personal goals or overcome personal difficulties and struggles.
“If there is no struggle, there is no progress” Frederick Douglass.
My tutor once said to me:
“Charlotte it is not in the good, easy times that we grow, we change, it is in those dark, difficult moments that we do”
I hold onto these wise words as there is so much truth within them. Attending counselling can be hard and challenging, however by offering you a safe space, to explore and dissect yourself I believe sincerely that change and growth is possible.
You are not alone. Together we will move forward.
