Cognitive Behavioral Therapy CBT
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that is evidence-based and uses scientifically proven methods and research. CBT has been effective for a range of problems including depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and substance abuse problems, marital problems, eating disorders and severe mental illness. It is a combination of talk therapy and behavioral therapy.
Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is a type of therapy that blends aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy with mindfulness techniques. The goal of MBCT is to enhance client awareness so that he or she is better able to recognize emotional triggers and avoid being drawn into automatic patterns of thinking and behaving.
Gestalt therapy is a holistic approach to mental illness and wellness integrating mind/body and spirit. It emphasizes strengths, adaptability, and personal responsibility. A key tool is heightened awareness in the here and now in order to consciously choose future actions or behaviors. The Gestalt therapist uses the therapeutic relationship itself to explore relational dynamics and give the client immediate feedback about the self, self-regulation and creative adjustments one makes as a result of life circumstances. This therapy is designed to provide enough support and challenge to the client that he/she can then take personal risks and explore aspects of self that are lost, forgotten, squelched, contained, eliminated, disowned.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy DBT
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a modified type of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Its main goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate their emotions, and improve their relationships with others.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprosessing EMDR
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.
