Psychotherapy, also called therapy or counseling, is the process of meeting with a psychologist or counselor to resolve problematic beliefs, behaviors, emotions, or relationship issues. Starting therapy can be a big step toward a healthier version of yourself and living your best life possible—no matter what difficulties you may be facing. Through psychotherapy, you can change self-destructive behaviors and habits, resolve painful feelings, improve your relationships, and more.
All therapies are different but it is important to establish goals with your therapy and determine the steps you will take to get there. Whether in individual, couples, or family therapy, your relationship with your therapist is a confidential one and focuses not only on the content of what you talk about, but also the process of how you interact. The therapy process or how you share your feelings and experiences is thought to be just as important as the specific issues or concerns you share in psychotherapy.
You can expect that your therapist will be someone who supports you, listens attentively, models a healthy and positive relationship experience, gives you appropriate feedback, and follows ethical guidelines. Good therapy should be tailored to you and your experiences.
Therapy or counseling is the art and science of helping people to discuss, explore & resolve issues
Purpose is knowing who we are and where we're going in life. When people struggle with purpose, they feel lost and have difficulties moving forward. It's our belief that people should NOT feel defined by uncertainty and insecurity.
We will help you explore your wants and needs to get you back on track and moving in the right direction. We'll also help you figure out what has kept you stuck, assist you in removing those obstacles-- within or outside of yourself--and use exploratory, interpersonal, or solution-focused strategies to reestablish a deeper sense of meaning.
Bucks County Psychological is here to help you become the person you wish to be and move in the direction you wish to go.
Pleasure is the experience of engaging in enjoyable, healthy, and peaceful activities that bring us a sense of fulfillment. Without it, we're left feeling bored or even worse--empty.
Some people have forgotten how to have fun, perhaps because their busy lives led to exhaustion or burn-out. For others, healthy fun was derailed by compulsive tendencies--like drinking or substance misuse--meant to numb their emotions or create the illusion of enjoyment.
At BCP, we enjoy helping you figure out healthy, fun and mindful ways to experience life. Whether connecting with your well being through exercise, discovering a new hobby, developing your social life, or learning how to be at peace when alone, we're here to help you explore pleasure in healthy and safe ways.
Pain comes in many forms. Whether emotional, physical, interpersonal, or work related, when left unmanaged it creates problems--plain and simple.
Depression can derail our sense of hope and purpose. Relationship problems can derail our experience of enjoyment or fulfillment. Unhealthy habits like compulsive D & A use can derail everything.
Our most important role at Bucks County Psychological is to use therapeutic strategies to help you manage and resolve your pain. Our expertise lies in understanding you and your concerns. Our specialization is to assist you in figuring out what caused your problems or keeps them going. And our singular focus is to help you through them using evidence-based therapeutic techniques that are proven to help.
At Bucks County Psychological, our foundation of psychotherapy follows the Humanistic and Person-Centered model as we believe that every person has the capacity to fulfill his or her own potential. Instead of seeing people as inherently flawed, with problematic behaviors and thoughts that require treatment, Person-Centered Therapy identifies that we have the capacity and desire for personal growth and change.
Our role as therapists are to provide empathy, congruence, and unconditional positive regard to facilitate the positive change within our clients. What are empathy, congruence, and unconditional positive regard?
Empathy attempts to develop an accurate and connective understanding of a client's thoughts and feelings. When the therapist has an empathic understanding of the client’s experiences and faithfully restates what the client says, the client is able to figure out the meaning of his or her own experiences. We wish to connect with your experience to best serve you moving forward.
Person-Centered therapists strive for congruence; that is, being self-aware, genuine, and authentic in their interactions with clients. We are real with our clients and this is one of the reasons they love to work with us.
Unconditional positive regard is when a therapist show compassion and acceptance towards the client, no matter what the concern. We provide a nonjudgmental and accepting space for the client to say anything without fear of judgment. And no matter what you say, we care about helping you move forward.
Though Person-Centered therapy is our foundation, we build off of this technique with a variety of others depending on the circumstances of your case. This might include the use of exploratory psychodynamic therapy, action-oriented cognitive-behavioral therapy, group therapy, or evidence-based D&A therapy. No matter what technique is used, at its core is our belief in you and your potential.
A Person-Centered therapist helps clients to recognize their potential and fulfill it using empathy and unconditional positive regard. We see the possibility in our clients and wish to help them actualize their wants and needs.
