Therapy for the soul.
Philosophical Counselling is a psychotherapy that offers an
entirely new approach to life's relatively common and often most difficult problem.
Through a series of dialogues, Philosophical Counselling helps
clients to come to an awareness of hidden biases, unspoken assumptions, and
conflicting values that may be preventing an inquiry into alternative perspectives
that could help ease the probelm(s).
A Philosophical Counsellor is concerned with both the
mitigation of problems and their prevention. A such, she is both counsellor and
teacher, helping clients to think clearly about the issue at hand, while at the
same time given clients the tools that will improve their thinking and hence
feelings, emotions, reaction and behaviours in the future.
As a Philosophical Counsellor, I understand that most
individuals live by their many unexamined (rather than unconscious) assumptions
and values that can affect thinking and behaviour in puzzling and distressing
ways. I also see a persona's thinking as being informed by childhood
experiences, but not determined by them.
My approach to counselling is client centred, combining
philosophical insights with techniques widely in use today in Behavioural
Therapy and in Rational-Emotive and other Cognitive based therapies.
