Logotherapy, Narrative Therapy
Logotherapy stems from the Greek word for logo, which means 'meaning'. The therapy is based on the theory that any wisdom on healing can be found in our spiritual or noetic dimension. We all possess the cure for any negative emotions, relationships and issues inside of our inner spirits. The approach was developed by Viktor Frankl whose theories were heavily influenced by his personal experiences of suffering and loss in Nazi concentration camps.
The therapist will apply Logotherapy by helping the client recognize that he or she is a unique spirit. This uniqueness is what we express through our beliefs, behaviours and lives.
Logotherapy helps people to move beyond their own negative beliefs and to pursue our desires in order to achieve satisfaction in life and fulfill our purposes. By changing our perceptions, we can see things differently and learn to accept what we can't control.

Narrative Therapy provides clients the opportunity to regain their ability to develop positive relationships by healing past wounds. It can be used in individual, family, adoption and couples contexts.
This type of therapy offers a respectful and non-blaming approach which acknowledges each person as the author of his or her own life. Narrative therapy assumes that people have a range of inner resources that help them deal with difficulties and problems in their lives.
Narrative therapy can be used with children, adults, in groups, couples and individuals. It can help them cope with traumatic events without the need to discuss it directly.
