Looking Forwards – Solution Focused Therapy

My core counselling training is in the humanistic-existential orientation and, more specifically, is predominantly of the person-centred approach (the ‘PCA’). This type of therapy is ‘non-directive’; the idea is that the counsellor does not tell the client what they should do in their situation, or what areas they should explore in their therapy. I have heard it said that solution focused brief therapy (SFBT here on in) is just the opposite of the person-centred approach, and that the two are vastly different.

Understanding your emotions can help you control your experiences

Emotions , we all have them, we don’t always tend to understand them and most of us let our subconscious do the hard work of whether to laugh, cry or get angry but what if we could become very aware of our emotions and how we respond? What if we had a chart that mapped out all our emotions. I mean, what if we could choose to REALLY laugh at something that would usually make us angry, wouldn’t that be marvellous!?Going from a feeling of total rage to feelings of happiness and joy.

Well it is possible to train your brain to be this way with some conscious effort. This blog post explores the profound affect of being consciously aware of our emotional bodies to improve our mental and emotional health but also change our perception of our lives as a whole.
