Eclectic Counselling

An eclectic counsellor may work in shorter or longer term ways and will use a range of different theories, methods and practices according to an individual client's needs.

This is based on their belief that no particular theoretical approach works better than all others for a specific problem. In practice many therapists, after training go on to develop a “toolbox” of useful techniques and ideas and many might eventually feel more eclectic than attached to a particular way of working.
