Counselling is a form of talking therapy. The counselling offered at Just this! Therapy is grounded in mindfulness, humanistic and trauma-informed. Other therapeutic approaches may also be integrated into the therapeutic framework should they be deemed to be beneficial to you.
Before any counselling work begins, we start with an initial assessment session, which is basically a chance to go over what you require and see if your needs can be met by Just this! Therapy. Should it be found that a referral is needed, then you will be guided toward a therapy and therapist that would better suit your needs.
Much of the research suggests that the relationship between client and therapist are vital in terms of predicting a positive therapeutic outcome. The initial assessment is a good time for you to gauge whether you feel comfortable with your therapist. Please be aware that it is not rude or offensive to shop around until you find a counsellor that fits, it is, after all, your money, time and mind. And from a person-centered perspective, only you know where you are best placed.
While counselling is about feeling heard and understood. The real growth comes when you begin to hear yourself, and start trusting yourself and your deepest nature.
