These three theories allow me versatility to adapt my approach in order to provide the best outcome for my client.
The Person-centred model recognises that each person?s experiences of the world is unique and equally valid; no two people have the same frame of reference, experience, upbringing or background. This therapy works with the client in the here and now.
Psychodynamic therapy focuses on the unconscious and past experiences, to determine current behaviour. The client is encouraged to talk about childhood relationships with significant people, working to reveal the unconscious memories of past events that may have contributed to currents issues.
The Existential model is looking at your life and what it means to you, taking responsibility for your actions and choices. It is also about recognising that you have choices in life and are free to make your own choices. This theory looks at your being in the world: ?Who am I? ?Where am I going? ?What am I looking for in life? ?How do I relate to my world?
