Change Matters


Theraputic Approaches


EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing)


CBT (Cognitive Behavioural)

  This therapeutic approach diverges from the traditional model of the therapist as expert and instead empowers and motivates the client in the therapeutic process using a non-directive, empathic approach. The therapy is based on Carl Rogers's understanding that every human being strives for and has the capacity to fulfill his or her own potential. Person-centered therapy, also known as Rogerian therapy, has had a tremendous impact on the field of psychotherapy. Rather than viewing people as inherently flawed, person-centred therapy identifies that under the right circumstances each person has the capacity for personal growth and change.

The person-centered therapist learns to recognize and trust human potential, providing clients with empathy and positive regard to help facilitate change. When appropriate, the therapist avoids directing the course of therapy by following the client's lead whenever possible. The therapist offers support, guidance, and structure so that the client can discover personalized solutions within themselves that were previously unknown or forgotten.
