What kinds of therapy are available and what is the difference between them?
You can choose between lots of
different kinds of talking therapy, some take longer than others eg
some people might think that they need to see a therapist for years. My
experience is that this is totally unnecessary and counter-productive
to the client's sense of well-being and confidence. Usually 6 sessions
sorts out the bulk of most problems -
I work as a brief therapist. You can choose how few or how many sessions you have.
Neither is it important to hit cushions or weep and wail dramatically - although clients do get upset, it is always in a constructive sense, letting go of the problem that has plagued them for years.
Some approaches that I might
EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitisation
Although it sounds rather complicated, it is an elegant way of helping you to become less sensitive about major events,
We could call this basic
You might have a lot of emotions, guilt, anger, sadness, frustration, despair, fear about something that has happened, is happening or will happen in the future.
We can minimise or even
vaporise the effects of this using EFT
(Emotional Freedom Technique)
You may have seen Paul
McKenna using this with people on TV to help them tap away their
Part of the
problem of having problems is that we get so very stressed about having
them and not being able to get rid of them. Wouldn't it be great to be
able to learn to completely relax, mind and body, and be much more
positive about life in general?
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) - this is about how you program yourself. Do you react badly when you encounter spiders, men with beards, particular accents, a certain smell or a particular song? Chances are that you have stored it in your brain in a particular way that isn't helpful -wouldn't it be great if you could it shrink it down to size so that it's effect was negligible or even non-existent?
CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - this type of therapy is much favoured by the NHS - the idea is to make the client aware of how they feel in a particular situation and take control. By breaking the problem down into manageable steps the client can start to make progress away from the problem and towards the solution. It can include relaxation therapy.
Transactional Analysis (TA) - by looking at the relationships you have with people around you and the relationships you had in your family when you were growing up, you can improve the way you deal with people at work, school etc. Very useful for anyone who has been bullied or has feelings of poor self-esteem.Neuro-developmental This approach is useful for anyone who has had a stroke, is recovering from a car accident or who failed to develop their full potential when growing up eg learning difficulties, balance problems. I'm also interested in helping anyone who has Asperger's Syndrome or any other form of autism to overcome difficulties in every day life.
