About Integrative Therapeutic Counselling
Being an integrative counsellor means that Beth can use a range of methods to help you depending on your personality and situation. One of the central principles of therapeutic counselling is the belief that you hold the answers within yourself and Beth works to help you find those answers. Other tried and tested methods include:
- Exploring the ‘here and now’ in the therapy room to pick up patterns and feelings
- Supporting people to integrate body and mind as too often they are not working together, and this can have a detrimental effect on our health and wellbeing
- Exploring transactions in relationships
- Working creatively (for instance with art, stories or objects) to increase self-awareness and expression
- As Beth is also a personal performance coach, she can work in a very goal orientated way if appropriate.
How does Therapeutic Counselling work?
Counselling offers a safe and confidential space to explore what is going on for you. The interventions Beth uses in her counselling can raise your awareness of what is going on so that you can work together to reach your goals.
What happens in a Therapeutic Counselling session?
In the first session Beth will talk to you about your counselling contract so that you can be sure you are receiving safe and ethical counselling. You will also talk about what you would like to achieve from the counselling, and you can ask any questions about the counselling you may have. After this the sessions will move forward at your pace, working on the issues you would like to bring to the sessions. You'll regularly review the work to check things are going in the right direction.
