Secondly, the therapist needs need to be able to give the client their full attention.

    Beyond Individual Therapy

    Beyond Individual Therapy

    Originally most forms of psychotherapy focused on the individual client and their individual problems. However later researchers stressed the importance of looking beyond the individual - to their relationships and to the wider social systems they live in. The ‘systemic view’ is interested in how these factors impact on individual well-being and distress. This film tells the story of the development of systemic ideas and provide an understanding of how the client context is of value for counsellors and psychotherapists across all therapeutic approaches, as any individual client is inevitably embedded within a social system.

    Being Present in Therapy

    Being Present in Therapy

    What is ‘being present’? Why does it matter? How can you achieve it? One of the key skills for a counsellor or psychotherapist - and a key element of the therapeutic relationship - is the ability to be ‘present’ to the client whatever material they bring into the room. This film explores what ‘being present’ means, both in relation to the therapist capacity to sit with clients’ material, and in relation to the client becoming more able to be present to themselves and sit with their experiences and difficult emotions. These things are emphasised across all therapeutic approaches, but mindfulness in particularly has some tools for developing the capacity to be present.
