It is important to me that clients feel they're able to be informed before they step into the experience of therapy. Whether it is with me, or you ultimately choose a different therapist, I want to remove some of the mystery surrounding it and what therapist are trying to do. Hopefully you will get a sense of the answer to the question "How does therapy help people, anyway?"
Here I go into some of the details about how therapy is intended to work. Not every therapist thinks exactly the same way, but I believe that these pages present a fairly objective informational resource. If you are wondering what approach I take, that depends on discussing the issues with each individual client and assessing their needs along with a discussion about what path they feel like they want to take.
The information is split into two pages. On the first page, I discuss the foundations for a psychological approach to therapy. On the second, I briefly discuss how different modes of therapy fit into this, and why there are so many different types of therapy to begin with.
