Correct Therapy

                                                 The Correct Therapy


Given the correct type of support, we all have the ability to heal, and it is becoming increasingly noticeable that the correct type of psychotherapy and counselling can be much more effective than drug therapy.  Human Givens therapists are trained to deal effectively and quickly with all types of mental distress.

As a Human Givens Psychotherapist, I work from the Human Givens approach, which is a solution-focused approach offering fast, effective, and practical help. Frequently a person requires just one consultation to chat about their situation to help decide how to move forward.




The checklist below can be used as a guide to finding the help you need:

An effective psychotherapist or counsellor:

  • Knows how to build rapport quickly with distressed people
  • Understands depression and how to lift it
  • Helps immediately with anxiety problems including trauma or fear related symptoms
  • Is prepared to give advice if needed or asked for
  • Will not use jargon or ‘psychobabble’ or tell you that counselling or psychotherapy has to be ‘painful’
  • Will not dwell unduly on the past
  • Will be supportive when difficult feelings emerge, but will not encourage people to get emotional beyond the normal need to ‘let go’ of any bottled up feelings
  • May assist you to develop your social skills so that your needs for affection, friendship, pleasure, intimacy, connection to the wider community etc. can be better fulfilled
  • Will help you to draw and build on your own resources (which may prove greater than you thought)
  • Will be considerate of the effects of counselling on the people close to you
  • May teach you to relax deeply
  • May help you think about your problems in new and more empowering ways
  • Uses a wide range of techniques as appropriate
  • May ask you to do things between sessions
  • Will take as few sessions as possible
