I use the Human Givens approach which consists of a combination of up-to-date, effective techniques that includes cognitive behavioural approaches, relaxation and visualisation.
Primarily I focus on the current difficulties that you are having and how you would like your future to be.
There is no need for you to give details about your past or to discuss traumatic events that you do not want to talk about.
