Cognitive-behavioural therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings.
The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviours that flow from them.
CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments. CBT has been clinically proven to help clients in a relatively short amount of time with a wide range of disorders, including depression and anxiety.
Mindfulness is all about being in the here and now. It teaches you how to focus on the thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and the environment around you at any particular moment without the distraction of past events or thoughts or an imagined future.
It provides practical techniques including breathing and meditation exercises that can be helpful in reducing symptoms of depression, stress and anxiety.
Schema Therapy suggests that ongoing distress is a result of the activation of schemas, which have often been developed in a person’s early years.
Schemas subconsciously occur and can interfere with our thoughts, increase feelings of anxiety, depression and behaviors that may be disengaging people from their relationships with people they love and living a fulfilling life.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a method of therapy that works to engage the motivation of clients to change their behaviour.
Clients are encouraged to explore and confront their ambivalence associated with life which may be exacerbating symptoms of anxiety and depression. Therapists attempt to help clients explore their options and consider making changes which are helpful to them!
Motivational Interviewing is frequently used in cases of addictions, unhelpful habits and making meaningful change in fulfilling your wishes!
Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) is a brief, attachment-focused psychotherapy that centers on resolving interpersonal problems and depression. It is an empirically supported treatment (EST) that follows a highly structured and time-limited approach.
