As a team at NETwork, we are trained in a number of different approaches and utilise skills from:
- Behaviour Analysis (Applied Behaviour Analysis and Verbal Behaviour)
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
- Acceptance and Commitment therapy
- Humanistic Counselling (person centred counselling, gestalt theory and transactional analysis)
We work integratively which means upon listening to your story we adopt an approach or perhaps multiple approaches that we will think will most meet the needs you have for counselling.
Listening is the very core of our work as therapists, and what we aim is that when you walk away you feel that your story has been heard, and that someone else has understood you. We will work together to develop a plan of action so as you can meet your goals. Some individuals simply need carved out space to talk and be listened to. Others are on a more active journey.
We believe those we work with are active agents of their own change. That is we actively encourage you to reflect on sessions outside of our time together, implement strategies we have spoken about in your daily life and relationships, and complete homework activities and reading between sessions where appropriate.
We believe that each and every person has gifts and talents that can be drawn out and utilised to fulfill their goals and hopes. We firmly believe that challenges and weaknesses that we have can be used constructively and turned into strengths.
