Recognizing Unique Perspectives

What is a Value-Based
Approach to Therapy?

Value-based therapy is a counselling framework that emphasizes aligning one’s activities, aspirations, and decisions with one’s underlying beliefs. At Unique Peace Counselling, we understand that people who identify as on the autistic spectrum, as well as those who are ADHD, have distinct views and beliefs that influence their experiences and ambitions. Our value-based approach is intended to recognize and incorporate these personal values into the therapy process.

Our value-based approach at Unique Peace Counselling is a dedication to understanding and appreciating each person’s individuality. We invite you to investigate the transformative power of therapy that respects your values, fostering a journey of self-discovery, resilience, and long-term fulfilment.

Aligning Therapy and Values

Why Choose a Value-Based Approach to Therapy?

Understanding one’s personal values in-depth helps individuals, couples and families to better choose what they take on, as it serves as a framework for what will most likely be restorative to them. This approach also helps individuals, couples and families to set boundaries with things that do not align with their values.

This approach is also helpful when understanding Autism and ADHD, as it helps neurodivergent individuals, couples and families to align with what they value even if such values are counter-cultural. Aligning with one’s values also helps a person to unmask, which may promote better self-understanding, self-compassion and self-care.
