SOLUTION FOCUSED COUNSELLING /
PSYCHOTHERAPY IN BARNSLEY, SOUTH YORKSHIRE:
Solution Focused Brief Therapy is a short, brief form of psychotherapy
/ counselling, which offers a realistic
set of interventions derived from work done in a Family Therapy Centre in a poor area in America in the last 20 years.
Adults were seeking speedy relief from challenges within their own relationships and their chidren and larger families.
These problems often concerned barriers caused by poor communication, negative anger, low motivation, and many other
personal and relationship challenges within parents and families. Funding was short so often families could not
have as many sessions are were then thought ideal. Many families had situations and backgrounds relating to poverty,
poor educaton, poor parenting, unemployment, addictions, depression, discrimination, etc. This type of counselling therapy
emerged as a positive reaction to clients only motivated or able to attend for 2 to 4 sessions, due to their
often chaotic or pressurised lifestyles. Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) psychotherapy / counselling concentrates
on the assumption that somewhere in the past the client may have managed better or behaved better or felt better.
There is total emphasis on moving forward without any effort to look back, to analyse or to reflect to much.
The client is asked a Miracle Question: 'If you woke up tomorrow and one or more miracle had occured in the night, how
would you feel, what would have changed?' The client is asked that if 10 made them feel like a miracle had happened
and if 0 meant that they felt life was not worth living, what number do they feel now today right now?' The clent
is then asked the Exception Question: 'What times in the past did you feel or cope better and why do you think that was?'
Using the knowledge and ability from handling the problem better or from abilities handling similar problems, the client
can be supported, empowered and motivated to move forward. One step at a time the client learns and gains confidence
in using improved or new coping tools to solve problems and overcome conflicts. All age groups are welcome, including
children and adolescents. This type of counselling / psychotherapy is very empowering, motivating and forward thinking.

CBT COUNSELLING / PSYCHOTHERAPY IN BARNSLEY SOUTH YORKSHIRE:
is Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy?
Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy (CBT) focuses on your present-day thoughts,
physical symptoms & behaviours, that comprise an area of emotional difficulty. Controlled clinical trials of treatment
for Anxiety & Mood disorders demonstrate that CBT decreases symptoms in 65-85% of sufferers. The UK national
health lead body NICE, maps out reccomended treatment pathways for depression, anxiety, OCD, etc. NICE
clearly reccomend CBT as a preferred form of Counselling / Psychotherapy, with or without medication. In Barnsley
and other areas of South Yorkshire or West Yorkshire, other less structured Psychotherapy or Counselling therapies are
more client-led and examine and reflect on the past before moving forward. However, my powerful CBT solutions
all concentrate on the 'here and now', helping the client to develop realistic, practical and effective day-to-day
CBT can be slow and take between 6 to 20 sessions, therefore can be expensive
in private practice. There is a wating list on the NHS and often funding and/or availability runs out, often after 6
to 8 sessions. To kick-start CBT and lessen the number of sessions needed and therefore the cost, I can mix in
some sessions of Clinical Hypnotherapy. CBT and Hypnotherapy mix well together and what might have taken 6 to 20 sessions
of pure CBT, can reduce to 6 to 10 sessions when a very powerful mix of CBT and Hypnotherapy is effectively used.
The clear goals of CBT are to:
- Recognize unrealistic patterns of thinking/acting
the intensity & frequency of problematic symptoms
- Increase day-to-day coping skills
- Prevent relapse in
