Cognitive behavioural therapy focuses on practical strategies to help a person change unhelpful or unhealthy patterns. These patterns may be ways of thinking, feeling or behaving, and often have an immediate impact on a person’s quality of life. Under the guidance of your therapist, CBT approaches often involve out-of-office activities such as self-directed learning modules, reporting (such as a sleep diary or thought journal), practical exercises and problem solving.
With the aim of overcoming negative thoughts and feelings, acceptance and commitment therapy is a mindfulness based approach. This approach to therapy explores the detrimental impact of avoidance-based coping strategies, and helps the guest discover alternative, more helpful skills.
Dialectal behaviour therapy combines the acceptance approach of ACT and the practical element of CBT. This type of therapy helps individuals understand how their current situation is not beneficial or fulfilling, and seeks to find solutions that enable a healthy and personally meaningful life.
This form of researched based therapy has shown to be highly effective for individuals experiencing the negative effects of trauma. Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EDMR) therapy alleviates distress and assists in recovery of traumatic experiences. The therapist directs the patient with eye movements to refocus on external stimulus, and “retrain” physical responses to unsettling memories.
A cutting edge approach in psychotherapy, brainspotting, is similar to EDMR in the way that it employs the use of eye movement to facilitate the process of recovery, especially for substance misuse, mental health challenges and trauma.
Schema therapy allows individuals to explore their negative thinking frameworks and replace such patterns with healthier alternatives and skills. The therapist will guide a guest through the schema discovery phase, before working with the guest to improve their emotional awareness and eventually suggest and implement more positive behaviours.
