Many psychological problems are the result of learnt pattern. These
learnt patterns are often the best adaptation a person could find in the past /
in childhood. A person may continue to use them in the present – often
unknowingly. When these same patterns no longer work, a
person may feel stuck and in need to seek help.
Lilly’s approach is about helping to clients
to find solutions for themselves.
This is called ‘problem-solving therapy’. Here, therapy is viewed as
‘teamwork’, where both the client and the therapist work actively together to
solve problems with which the client is struggling.
essence of this approach is the key message
that people CAN change and grow, and often profoundly so, if
they are committed to it.
