Describe how the cognitive approach has been applied to RET The cognitive approach believes that we are information processors. Our thinking and the way we process and interpret events can affect our behaviour particularly our mood. Therefore rational emotional therapy is linked to the approach because its attempts to change the way an individual interprets and thinks about certain events. Ret was devised by albert ellis in the 1950’s. it tries to tackle mustabatory thinking (the thinking that you must be good at everything and like by everyone) by trying to make the patient think more rationally about situations.
Rogers also believed that people are inherently good and creative. However, he thought that people could become destructive when a poor self concept (how one sees oneself in comparison to others) or external constraints override the valuing process. Rogers thought that for a client to experience therapeutic change, certain conditions had to be present within the relationship. These conditions he called “The Core Conditions”, which were empathy, congruence (genuineness) and unconditional positive regard (respect). When Rogers talked about empathy, he meant the therapist should continually try to understand the client from their point of view (enter into their world to get a sense of how it feels)
Linda Potter A Personalised Induction Will Always Be More Effective Discuss This essay will explore the statement in the title that a personalised induction will always be more effective when used in the context of a Hypnotherapy session between Therapist and client. I will explore within this essay my own personal belief that personalising an induction is vitally important for the client. My reason for this belief is that I believe each person is unique and different in their own way. Therefore it is imperative to treat each person in an holistic or all round way. I will also discuss modalities, or the process that occurs when the brain receives information from our senses and how this represents itself internally.
A personalised induction will always be more effective. Why a personalised induction is always more effective. When meeting a client for a personalised induction for the first time it is critical to build up a good rapport, because if you have rapport with your clients, they are more likely to trust you, listen to you and communicate openly with you, and when someone trusts you, you can ask more of them. A relationship of warmth, trust and mutual positive regard is also essential. As a hypnotherapist it is important to try and find the most effective way to communicate with your client so they can get the most benefit from the session in order to achieve effective results and this can be done quite easily by chatting, observation and general
Lawrence Crabb claims that the goal of counseling should be psychological and spiritual maturity. Counselors should also seek to assist their clients in reaching their full potential for a life of service. He explains that this accomplished through the counseling relationship. This relationship will vary from client to client. Despite the variations amongst all individuals, Crabb believed that it is important to “abstract a game plan” (Crabb, 1986, p.149) which can be applied to a wide range of situations.
If a client is very logical and analytical and quite direct and scientific in their views i.e. there are no grey areas in what they think, then they are much more likely to respond to an authoritarian type of screed where the client is not given choices, the screed is very to the point and they are based on the client staying in control. The therapist will use direct suggestions in the screed therefore these types of screeds are often very effective for habit changing behaviours. If a client is more creative and imaginative and a caring person then they are more like to respond to a permissive screed using indirect suggestion. It is also important to assess a client’s preferred modality in order to form a screed based around this.
In conclusion we will see why it could be argued that the latter approach is the most useful for many clients. The term counselling is virtually interchangeable with psychotherapy. Psychotherapy means ‘healing the mind or soul’ (Nelson-Jones, 2011, p.3) and counselling tries to do the same. For counselling to work on a one to one or group basis then the clients must be there willingly. For many the relationship between client and counsellor is crucial to the success of the therapy and is based on trust and respect.
James Marks 1966 words A personal induction will always be more effective The skills and techniques used when practicing hypnotherapy successfully is more likely to be achieved when understanding the recipients personality and nature. The individual who is receiving hypnotherapy may or may not be effected depending on the approach that is taken by the therapist. The variety of simple but essential changes to the dialogue, tone of voice, speed of the spoken word and choice of language are all important to a successful approach for the therapist. As all people come from different backgrounds and environments speak and communicate in different ways using a their own way of communicating with others it is important to ascertain as much information
In addition I am going to explore how the client might feel in a session and the blocks, fears and uncertainties they may encounter. By way of background I will highlight person centred counselling which was pioneered by the eminent psychologist, Carl Rogers. Sincerity is key to being a good counsellor and the client needs to know that the counsellor has their best interests at heart, and are without a doubt sincere in what is said and what is professed. Courage in a counselling relationship is defined as acting in spite of known fears. Essentially, courage is strengthened with confidence in self and nothing can be achieved without courage.
It will explore in detail the theories of Carl Rogers, whose work is central to an understanding of the humanistic approach. Finally, it will outline both the strength and limitation of this approach. Origins of the humanistic approach This approach was first developed in the 1950’s as a response to the perceived limitations of two main prevailing models of the time, the psychodynamic approach and the cognitive-
