Online Person Centred Therapy
Online Person Centred Therapy is an empathic approach based on the empirically proven fact that a safe, accepting relationship between the therapist and client is key to the process of client self-discovery and actualization. This form of therapy encourages you to discover yourself, it aims to let you experience who you are, what you like and what hinders you in life. Central features of this form of therapy are reflection of your feelings and behavior and the confrontation with it.
The focus of Person Centred Therapy is personal and not just on the symptom or complaint. It helps you understand and/or process your emotions, thoughts and behavior in the context of your situation and personal history. You will learn to know yourself, you will learn to use your opportunities and you will learn to deal with limitations. This will help reduce psychical symptoms. You will learn to appreciate and accept your own feelings and thoughts so that you are aware of the choices you have made, make and will make. Your therapist will helping you to recognise and experience your own thoughts, feelings and motives. Your therapist will not teach you what you need to do, you will discover for yourself what you will and can do. Hence the focus on the client.
In the first sessions we will discuss and talk about your complaints/problems, about your current situation and about your life: what is your perspective of yourself and your problems? What needs to change or how would you like to change? When do you feel better? The psychotherapist can also bring up how he/she experiences you in the conversation. This is to help you get views on how you deal with others. In the conversations that follow it will mainly be about what you are currently working on and your psychotherapist will be listening accurately to help you to express your feelings and thoughts. Experiences from the past that you are dealing with are also topic of conversation.
You get more insight into yourself, not only on the problematic sides, but also on the strong sides of your personality. It may also be that you realize you demand more from yourself than is good for you or suits you. By facing your limitations and making more use of your options, you will be able to manage difficult situations in your life.
In the initial phase of the therapy the psychotherapist will discuss with you how long the therapy is expected to last. Your psychotherapist will regularly examine to what extent the goals of the therapy are achieved. Usually you have a weekly session of three quarters of an hour with your psychotherapist. This can also be a once every two weeks. A Person Centred Therapy is a "tailor-made" therapy. This form of therapy usually takes several months to a year. Sometimes it may be longer, depending on the issues involved. External factors, such as the maximum number of sessions that can be reimbursed, may also play a role.
Person Centred Therapy can be indicated for symptoms such as depression symptoms, anxiety symptoms, burnout, overstrain and excessive worry, and PTSD symptoms after a traumatic experience. More important than the nature of the problem is that you are prepared are to reflect on yourself during therapy.
