Therapeutic Counselling for Today

Now Therapy isn't the therapy of the past; it isn't stuffy, stern or one-sided. It doesn't assume you're "broken" or need "fixing".

 

Now Therapy is a contemporary, supportive and non-judgemental counselling service, which views you as an equal - a human being who's valuable, worthy of empathy and who's capable of change, growth and reaching your full potential.

Now Therapy can work with you - wherever you are in life right now, whatever's going on for you right now - whether that means tackling difficult issues, working toward change or practicing mental health maintenance.

There's no time like now.

Methods

. . .

Person-Centred Counselling says you're the expert on you. It's a client-centred approach which believes that, given the right conditions - being valued, accepted and having someone "walk a mile in your shoes" - you have the capacity to change, grow and reach your full potential. Sessions are a safe space to explore whatever you choose, at your own pace, with a qualified counsellor to listen and support you.

Psychoeducation arms you with knowledge about the issue(s) you're facing. It offers the opportunity to learn, gain awareness, shift perspective and develop a deeper understanding, so you can better manage, problem-solve and implement change. This method is directive and collaborative, teaching different techniques and strategies. It typically involves "worksheets" and "homework".

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) aims to identify, challenge and reframe unhelpful thoughts (cognitive) and unhelpful actions/reactions (behaviour) so you can deal with issues in a more positive way. CBT is collaborative and can involve "homework".

Humanistic Therapy includes Gestalt Therapy and Transactional Analysis. It's about working to strengthen your understanding of your world view by developing self-acceptance and overcoming criticism or disapproval from others. (For example: when you believe other people only value, respect or like you if you act a certain way, it’s easy to fall into the trap of constantly feeling like you aren’t good enough. This feeling can negatively impact how you view yourself and the world around you, which can then have a strong negative impact on your thoughts, feelings, actions and reactions.) Humanistic therapy is mostly collaborative.

 

Coaching focuses on change and action. It encourages you to set SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time-bound), establishes accountability and challenges you to reach for personal and/or professional success. It can empower you break through old barriers and develop new practices and habits, so you can achieve the goals you've set. Coaching is directive and collaborative and usually involves "homework". It benefits from strong commitment and a readiness to change, with a foundation of active motivation and willpower.
