JT Counselling Derbyshire

How I Work

My counselling approach is Integrative, which is a way of combining two or three counselling theories in order to make sure the counselling meets your individual needs. How we deal with challenges in life depends on many factors and working from an Integrative perspective ensures I am working in the best way in which I feel will support you. I use two main theories;

  • Person Centred Theory, which is a non-directive approach to therapy in which the counsellor believes in the client’s ability to make the right choices for themselves when certain supportive and empathic conditions are in place;
  • Systemic Theory, which explores how your place in your family/friendship ‘system’ may have contributed to the development of certain patterns of behaviour which you may wish to change, or you feel are now outdated. This theory is widely used in Couple Counselling and Family Therapy and can also be useful in individual therapy.

Depending upon your reasons for coming to counselling, other theories I may use are;

  • Transactional Analysis, which explores personality and communication; or
  • Solution Focused Therapy, which focuses on client’s strengths and their ability to set and work towards realistic goals.

I believe that people thrive when they feel safe and supported. I can help you work through issues which may be from your past and which you wish to explore and understand more deeply, or with things that are happening currently.

I offer you time and space in a calm, respectful and compassionate manner. Counselling can be challenging, but I will support you while you explore your situation, become more self-aware and, if you choose to, make any decisions in a considered way.
