The eclectic approach

The eclectic approach in psychology is an approach to psychotherapy that, based on the client’s troubles, uses methods from several forms of psychotherapy. It educates them there are other approaches to do same thing and thus improving themselves. 

Eclecticism is an abstract approach that does not hold firmly to a single paradigm or set of suppositions, but instead draws upon several stories, ideas, or styles to gain complementary judgments into a subject or applies different theories in particular cases. 

It can at times seem awkward or lacking in simplicity, and eclectics are sometimes criticized for lack of steadiness in their thinking. It is, however, frequent in many fields of study.
