OVERVIEWPrivate Practice Description:
Therapy is an art, not a science. Since every person is a unique individual, therapy will vary depending on the persons involved. Hence, there can be no one approach to therapy which works for everyone.
To facilitate change, different techniques may be used. However, the forging of a therapeutic alliance is essential for change. Research has shown that a successful outcome in therapy depends on this.
In humanistic psychology, emphasis is placed on self-actualization. A propensity to self-actualize is presumed to exist in all persons. Karen Horney made the following analogy to illustrate this phenomenon.
Like an acorn which grows into an oak tree, human beings will naturally develop under the right conditions. But obstacles can get in the way which prevent individuals from reaching their full potential.
By removing such obstacles, a better quality of life can be achieved. While challenges are unavoidable, they can be managed more effectively. For a more fulfilling life, consider therapy.Languages:
