Client Stories

Due to the nature of my work and perception that Mental Helath has in our culture these are few and far between.

 

One of my clients, Jaci Stephen, wrote about our work together in an edition of The Daily Mail.  You can read her story of our journey on web site of the Daily Mail here:  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-566262/Ive-spent-20-years-therapy-worthwhile.html

Trauma Resilience Training is designed to help individuals and organisations that have an increased risk of exposure to traumatic events. A central component of the course is to enable positive adaptation in the event of a critical incident and aid a swift return to normal functioning levels, both at home and at work.

 

Evidence shows that advance training is a significant factor in building ‘Resilience’ to potentially devastating events.

An exploration of a research-based approach to the evaluation of clients' experience of neuro-linguistic psychotherapy within a private practice making use of the CORE model.   Martin Weaver

 

This work showed a statistically significant reduction in the scores relating to client problems, as recorded by the clients themselves as part of the CORE model.  

 

Abstract

 

This work was undertaken to gain experience of conducting a research-based approach to evaluation within a private psychotherapy practice and to seek to measure the effectiveness of the provision of Neurolinguistic Psychotherapy (NLPt) for the clients of one psychotherapist, using the Clinical Outcomes in Routine Evaluation (CORE) psychotherapeutic outcomes evaluation model. 

 

NLPt is a form of constructivist psychotherapy (Weaver 2008) developed as an application of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), created in the early 1970s in California (Bandler & Grinder 1975).  NLPt is founded on the belief that the client creates representations of reality, or maps (Korzybski, 1933), which are then used to guide the client in understanding of their world and their place in it. 

 

Clients from within a single private practice were asked to participate by completing the questionnaires of the CORE Psychotherapy Evaluation Model. CORE is a standardised public domain model used to audit, evaluate and measure the outcomes of clients in therapy, and is commonly used in UK psychological therapy and counselling services.  The main tool of CORE is a 34-item questionnaire, designed to score a client's perceptions in four main areas - well-being, common problems or symptoms, life/social functioning and risk of harm to self and others.  CORE was chosen as a quantitative measure of the effectiveness of NLPt, being relatively simple to apply and relatively easy to analyse and present. 

 

This work showed a statistically significant reduction in the scores relating to client problems, as recorded by the clients themselves as part of the CORE model.  

It raises a number of questions about how this type of research can be carried out in the future within a private practice.

 

The sample was made up of:  41 clients who participated, with results from 33 being used. Client ages ranged from 18 to 55 years, with each client attending an average number of 7 sessions in total, with a space of one week between sessions.
