Transactional Analysis Transactional analysis - anxiety, depression and stress in Chester

Transactional
Analysis

Transactional Analysis (TA) is a theory of personality and interpersonal communication used to facilitate change and growth. The philosophy of TA is rooted in the belief that everyone is ok, we can all think, and we have the ability to decide what is right for us. TA provides  effective models to help us understand our interactions with others and our patterns of relating and how our past experiences are influencing us in the present.

Person Centred Therapy Person centred therapy

Person Centred
Therapy

Person centred therapy sees people as experts on themselves and offers support through acceptance, empathy and openness rather than through interpretations. The therapist offers a relationship of safety and trust through which people can explore their issues and feelings in order to arrive at self- acceptance and openness to their potential.

Pyschodynamic Therapy Pschodynamic therapy

Pyschodynamic
Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy looks at childhood and past experiences and interprets how they might affect present relationships and choices. As part of this you will explore how you relate to your therapist as this is seen as a reflection of your significant early relationships. As you start to distinguish between past and present you move towards gaining mastery of staying in the here and now and understanding yourself.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Cognitive behaviour therapy

Cognitive Behaviour
Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy explores how our thoughts beliefs and ideas affect the way we feel and act. Many emotional difficulties arise through beliefs and assumptions which are often based on past experiences. These beliefs may have been helpful at the time but are less relevant now. CBT aims to shift thoughts and behaviours in order to find more helpful ways of being in the world.

Couples Counselling Couples counselling

Couples
Counselling

Couples counselling isn’t complex. Essentially, it’s a specialised kind of talking therapy where two people sit down with a counsellor to talk about the way they are relating. Typically, it’s for two people in a romantic relationship. However, it can also be used by any two people wanting to improve their relationship, such as two family members, or two business partners.
