How does it work you probably ask yourself? What happens in a session? What makes this therapy so effective?
I’ve been asked this question many times and I always struggle to answer it in a few words. You see, therapy is more than a theory, technique or collection of tools.
It’s true the right technique for the right person at the right time can be like magic, but no technique works for everyone, all of the time.
In my view, therapy is more like an art form (hence the name Art of Change Therapy :-)). It is more about our interaction, finding what will work for you as an individual. Together we build tools that you can use in your life, we create techniques that are specific to you.
Having said that, there are principles I follow, such as the basic human needs, which help us to move forward. I have theoretical knowledge, like what depression really is and how to assist people to step out of it. And there are a variety of techniques that I use (for the right person at the right time).
Below is a short explanation about some of those principles and how they work.
