Therapy Psychologist in SussexCommon Therapies Used By Anne

All therapists and counsellors are guided by a theoretical approach or by a few approaches.

There are a many, many approaches and there are many reasons why a specific approach is used.

There are a number of reasons for this diversity:

1. Therapists and counsellors are trained differently depending on the post graduate degree they have completed
2. Their experience within the therapeutic environment
3. New emerging scientific support
4. New emerging theories, personal fit for the therapist and finally
5. The complexity of each human being.

Here are some common therapies used by Anne depending on the clients issues, requirements and experiences.

Collaborative Problem Solving

Developed by Dr. Ross Greene, Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) is based on the following principles:

  1. Children are a challenge because they lack certain skills that are being required of them.
  2. The best way to help these challenging children is to work together (collaboratively) with the child to solve the problems with the child.
