What is Talking Therapy?
The most common form of counselling and psychotherapy is ‘talking therapy’ (as opposed to Art Therapy or Music Therapy for example).
There are many different types of talking therapy. Most Counsellors and Psychotherapists use an ‘integrative approach’, which means that they use techniques from various therapeutic approaches, to best meet the needs of their clients.
If you would like a specific type of talking therapy, please ask. In addition to Integrative, we are able to offer Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
Person Centred Therapy is a talking therapy which offers you an empathic and non-judgemental environment to explore and move through your issues. It focuses on how you are feeling and supports you to make changes to improve your situation. We can offer you pure Person Centred Therapy, or a combination of this and other therapeutic approaches.
If you think Person Centred Therapy could benefit you, contact us to make an appointment or discuss it further. If you don’t think a Person Centred approach is for you, perhaps you would benefit from Cognitive Behavioural therapy.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy, which is a logical, goal-oriented systematic approach to addressing psychological issues. It focuses on thoughts, feelings, behaviours and body sensations. It aims to give you tools and techniques to make positive changes in your life. We can offer you pure CBT, or a combination of CBT and other therapeutic approaches.
If you think CBT could benefit you, contact us to make an appointment or discuss it further. If CBT doesn’t appeal to you, perhaps a Person Centred or Integrative approach would suit you better.
Our offices are in Newton Mearns and Glasgow. Telephone, video call (Skype) and home visit appointments are available if you are not able to reach us. We can usually offer you an appointment within 2 working days, and almost always within a week.
Is Talking Therapy Confidential?
Your confidentiality is taken very seriously and will only be broken in extreme circumstances. For more information see our client agreement.
Our Counsellors and Psychotherapists are all members of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and adhere to the relevant code of ethics. We have a choice of Counsellors and Psychotherapists who are BACP accredited.
