Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a form of talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that automatic thoughts and feelings can often trap you in a vicious cycle.
CBT aims to help you notice and change these negative automatic thinking styles or behaviour patterns, so you can feel better. CBT provides various strategies to help you deal with overwhelming problems here and now in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts.
With CBT we will help you to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel.
Person-centred counselling, also known as client-centred therapy, is a non-directive approach to talk therapy that emphasizes the client’s autonomy and capacity for self-determination in the therapeutic process.
The person-centred therapist has a positive and an optimistic view of human nature and believes that individuals have the ability to solve their problems and make positive changes in their lives. The therapist provides a supportive environment for the client to explore and utilize their own strengths and personal identity.
Person-centred therapy relies on three core principles: unconditional positive regard, empathy, and congruence.
Unconditional positive regard involves accepting and supporting the client without any judgment or criticism. Empathy involves understanding and sharing the client’s feelings and experiences. Congruence involves the therapist being genuine and transparent with the client.
Person-centred therapy allows the client to steer the therapy process, with the therapist acting mainly as a guide or a source of support for the client. The goal of person-centred therapy is to facilitate personal growth and relationships of the client by allowing them to explore and utilize their own strengths and personal identity.
Integrated therapy is a type of psychotherapy that combines different therapeutic approaches to create a personalized treatment plan for the client.
This approach aims to provide a more comprehensive and effective treatment by using techniques from different therapeutic orientations. The therapist works collaboratively with the client to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their unique needs and goals.
The therapist may use techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, humanistic therapy, and other approaches to create an integrated treatment plan.
The goal of integrated therapy is to provide a holistic approach to treatment that addresses the client’s physical, emotional, and psychological needs.
Integrated therapy has been found to be effective in treating a variety of mental health issues and allows for a better adaptation of the therapy to the distinctive characteristics and needs of each client.
