Types of Therapy

Person-Centred Counselling looks at self-concept (the way a person sees themselves) and works to improve self-esteem and increase confidence.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that helps a person to manage his/her problems by changing unhelpful thoughts and behaviour.

Systemic Family Therapeutic Interventions. Working systemically looks at the potential contribution of family dynamics to the problems of individual family members, couples, child/parent relationships. It promotes an understanding of difficulties in terms of the patterns and dynamics of family functioning.

Non Violent Resistance (NVR) is a therapeutic intervention developed in response to aggression and self-destructive behaviour in young people. NVR focuses on the unmet need of the young person and works with the adults who are caring for them e.g. family members, social workers and teachers.

Mindfulness is a relaxation technique achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations. Mindfulness works with our minds and bodies, teaching us how to live with more appreciation and less anxiety.
