Belinda uses a solution focused approach to counselling for depression and anxiety which focuses on human emotional needs and why they are so very important to our self-concept; our mental and physical well-being and how we make sense of the world around us.
These needs are innate and it is our perception of how those needs are being met (or not) that will determine how we feel at any point in time and those feelings act as a filter through which we see and interact with the world around us.
The psycho-social view of depression is that it is not an "illness" in the same way that diabetes is but that depression is a persistent low-mood state that can be lifted by identifying and addressing which needs are not being adequately met and by helping you to make use of your own innate resources to create a shift in your emotional state. Similarly, the excessive worrying or "rumination" which tends to characterise anxiety can be greatly lessened by working with our needs and resources.
A solution focused approach is pragmatic and aims to empower you to move forward with more courage and confidence in your own strengths and abilities.
