Eclectic Therapy

Eclectic therapy is a highly personalized therapeutic approach tailored to meet the individual client’s needs. It combines a variety of treatment orientations, techniques, and philosophies to create a custom program. Rather than adhering to a specific therapeutic approach, an eclectic therapist is flexible, using whichever techniques work best for a client. An eclectic therapist will usually balance listening and advice giving, as well as use all techniques that are available to them to treat their clients as successfully as possible. Think this approach might be right for you? Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s eclectic therapy specialists today.

Therapy is not exclusive to those suffering from traumatic or debilitating symptoms. Positive Psychology taps into the innate strengths that are unique to each one of us, building both resiliency and optimism, allowing us to flourish. "It is not enough to simply remove the negative symptom or presenting problem. In order to live an optimal and self-fulfilled life, strengths need to be discovered and promoted, so the seeds of happiness and wellbeing can grow and thrive.”
