Types of Therapy Used

Person-centred therapy (PCT)

Person-centred therapy (PCT) is also known as person-centred counselling, person-centred psychotherapy, client-centred therapy and Rogerian psychotherapy. PCT is a type of talk-psychotherapy developed in 1940 – 1950 by the psychologist Carl Rogers. PCT aims to provide individuals with the ability to develop a sense of ‘self’ to see how their feelings, attitudes, and behaviour are being affected negatively. While behaviourists criticised this technique for lack of structure and psychoanalysts for creating a conditional relationship, it has proven to be a popular and effective treatment.

Psychodynamic therapy

Psychodynamic therapy aims to bring the unconscious mind to consciousness – this helps individuals to experience, unravel, and understand true feelings, which may be deep-rooted, to resolve them.

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that helps individuals to manage problems by changing thought and behavioural patterns. It is often used to treat depression and anxiety but is also used extensively to treat other mental and physical health problems.
