Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT focuses on how your thoughts affect your feelings and actions. It recognises and challenges negative ideas which maintain the issues you experience. The aim of CBT is for you to experience healthier thoughts and feelings.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You determine which issue regarding your childhood or adult life you explore. The aim of counselling is to enable you to speak about a problem and discover a way forward which is right for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy combines therapies to suit your needs and the issues you encounter. It considers your subjective experiences and options. An aim of integrative therapy is to help you advance your self-understanding.
