WHAT INFLUENCES ARE INCORPORATED INTO THE THERAPY?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Is an evidence-based therapeutic method that helps treat various affective and anxiety disorders. Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) is based on the assumption that our thoughts, emotions and behaviours are interconnected. So when we make the thinking errors or "cognitive distortions" that we are all prone to, the whole system suffers. Through CBT, clients learn to recognise these automatic negative thoughts, assess whether their thinking accurately reflects reality and, if it does not, apply a series of structured questioning techniques to challenge the thinking and replace it with something more constructive. This process of gaining insight into and changing one's cognitive and behavioural processes requires constant practice, with considerable growth and reflection taking place outside the sessions.

It is beneficial in treating many disorders, including major depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and others. 

 

Mindfulness-based therapy (MBT).

Mindfulness practices can be integrated into almost any therapy modality. Mindfulness practice uses meditation and breathing exercises to improve how a person experiences emotions. Understandably, most people want to avoid negative emotions. However, if we avoid the unpleasantness of emotions, we cannot recognise negative thought patterns and opportunities for growth and greater happiness. Sometimes people feel so weighed down by negative emotions that they would do almost anything to escape them. In such cases, a person may develop unhealthy and self-destructive habits to escape the pain, such as self-harm, eating disorders, drug use and other risky behaviours. Mindfulness is a highly effective way to strengthen a person's ability to endure the discomfort of negative emotions and even develop a sense of peace and strength in the face of difficulty. By practising mindfulness regularly, a person can change their neural pathways so that they are more inclined towards serenity in the face of difficulty. 

 

Mindfulness focuses on gentle, non-judgmental awareness of our thoughts. Clients are taught to observe their thinking like outsiders watching the thoughts pass by. 

 

Interpersonal therapy

Our well-being depends mainly on the quality and harmony of our relationships. Interpersonal problems can cause considerable distress through conflict, losing a loved one, loneliness, a break-up or social insecurity. When interpersonal problems become a pattern in our lives, distress can develop into depression, and other mood disorders can worsen. Interpersonal therapy aims to alleviate depression and other mood disorders by focusing on the underlying relationship problems rather than the symptoms.
