Existential therapy focuses on the anxiety that occurs when a client confronts the conflict inherent in life. The role of the therapist is to help the client focus on personal responsibility for making decisions, and the therapist may integrate some humanistic approaches and techniques.
Holistic therapy addresses the mind, body, and spirit to support health and healing. It's very similar to general therapy or counseling but often draws on complementary and alternative practices that the therapist may also have in their toolbox
These three key concepts in person-centered counselling are: Empathic understanding: the counsellor trying to understand the client's point of view. Congruence: the counsellor being a genuine person. Unconditional positive regard: the counsellor being non-judgmental.
LGBTQ counseling can help with exploring your gender identity or expression; exploring your sexual orientation; thinking about coming out; identifying and managing depression, anxiety, or gender dysphoria; and dealing with discrimination or bullying.
