Jackie Taylor Counselling
Both counselling and psychotherapy offer the opportunity to talk confidentially, to be listened to attentively without being judged, and to receive help in seeing problems and their place in life, more clearly. When difficulties are better understood, change becomes easier.
'Counselling' is often used to describe short term work focussing on a particular problem, whilst 'psychotherapy' usually describes a more wide ranging exploration of issues, in greater depth.
More information about counselling & psychotherapy can be found on BACP's It's good to talk website.
The psychodynamic approach
The psychodynamic approach operates from the basis that our understanding of current experiences, and our responses to situations, are influenced by past events in our lives.
Cognitive approaches involve questioning and challenging our 'automatic' thoughts - those ideas that repeatedly crop up unasked and 'tell' us what to believe - about ourselves, our lives and the world around us. It also helps us to change unhelpful patterns of behaviour. Self help resources are availailable on line.
The transpersonal approach is based on the belief that we can not only get through difficulties and crises, but that we can learn from them in order to grow and develop towards our full potential as human beings.
