Humanistic approach

I like to focus on a person’s individual nature, rather than categorizing groups of people with similar characteristics as having the same problems. I look at the whole person, not only from the therapist’s view but from the viewpoint of individuals observing their own behaviour. The emphasis is on your positive traits and behaviors, and the ability to use your personal instincts to find wisdom, growth, healing, and fulfillment within yourself.

This approach can be used to treat depression, anxiety, panic disorders, personality disorders, addiction, and relationship issues, including family relationships. People with low self esteem, who are having trouble finding their purpose or reaching their true potential, who lack feelings of “wholeness,” who are searching for personal meaning, or who are not comfortable with themselves as they are, may also benefit from humanistic therapy.

This is a form of talk therapy which explores how a person feels in the here and now, rather than trying to identify past events that led to these feelings. Additionally, I provide an atmosphere of support, empathy, and trust that allows the individual to share their feelings without fear of judgment.
