Approach

There are many different styles and types of therapy, all of which can be effective. When selecting a therapist, it is important to find someone with whom you are comfortable and who operates in a style that works for you. The skill, compassion, and insight of the therapist and the commitment on the part of the person coming into therapy are the factors which allow people to bring change into their lives.
