Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on how thoughts, beliefs and attitudes affect a person’s feeling and behaviour. CBT techniques vary depending on a client’s issues.
Coaching is based on a professional relationship between client and coach, aimed at supporting a client’s wishes for learning and growth.
Existential therapy focuses on free will, self-determination, and the search for meaning, often centred on the client rather than the symptoms. This approach emphasizes the client’s capacity to make rational choices and to develop to their maximum potential.
Humanistic Integrative Counselling is an approach that systematically considers the whole person – mind, body and spirit.
Strengths-based approaches value the capacity, skills, knowledge, connections and potential in individuals and communities to aid recovery and empowerment.
SFBT asks clients to set concrete goals and to draw upon strengths in their lives that can help bring about the desired change for a preferred future. Goal-setting strategies such as the SMART (Specific Goal, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely) and GROW (Goal, Current Reality, Options, Will) models are used to help clients meet their objectives successfully.
