What is Therapeutic Coaching/Counselling?
It’s good question. Most of us, at some point in our lives will experience anxiety or stress in some form and sometimes it’s hard to know how to change or be happy.
Fusion Therapeutic Coaching uses the best techniques and protocols (those that have a proven track record in creating beneficial change) from a variety of coaching and therapy disciplines, particularly Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person Centred Therapy and Human Givens Therapy. This ability to combine proven disciplines to find the best possible way forward for each individual helps to create long term, sustainable change and transforms lives.
"You cannot always control what goes on outside but you can learn to control what goes on inside."
As human beings we all have certain physical and emotional needs and when these needs are not being met our mind and body will send us messages such as anxiety, panic, depression or even chronic pain. Our immune system struggles, our sleep patterns become unsettled and frankly we feel exhausted.
But if you go to its route, you’ll find that these messages are important because they can help you tune in, understand and make the necessary changes to take back control of your health and happiness.
"I don’t think people understand how stressful it is to explain what’s going on in your body when you don’t understand it yourself."
The things we don’t understand can often terrify and control us. When we don’t know what is happening it often seems impossible to move forward. Part of therapeutic counselling comes under the heading of ‘psycho education’, it’s a way to help you understand what’s happening and learn ‘mind management skills’ and techniques to change the way you think and behave. A way to help you make better decisions and lead a happier life.
We all need our emotions. Without them we would be just like robots, but ‘emotional intelligence’ is the ability to recognise our emotions for what they are. The emotional brain is a black or white thinker and sees things in ‘either-or’ terms. Either everything is ‘ok’ or everything is ‘not ok. For that reason, we don’t need our emotional brain to be in control. Explaining what is going on as simply and clearly as possible is often enough to knock the fear out of fear, reducing background anxiety and helping people take back control.
Because Fusion Therapeutic Counselling mixes both counselling and coaching disciplines, it can help you deal with a specific problem or it can help you review your goals and learn new tools to help make the changes needed in order to get to where you want to be. It helps you to build self-awareness and understanding which enables gentle and practical problem resolution within a wide variety of issues.
