Complementary Therapies Picture


The following articles are taken from my complementary therapy degree programme. The first considers the relationships I experienced with my general practitioner and during a co-counselling workshop. They both focus on how positive empowering relationships can heal the individual.

The second article looks at the placebo effect. What is meant by, placebo effect, the different beliefs behind why it is said to work, how effective they are and placebo effects and complementary therapies.

The third article helps give an insight into, the social construction of illness. Here illness is explored through different cultures and their meanings placed on illness.

1) Healing Relationships

2) The Placebo Effect
