Therapies

Schema Therapy

Schema Therapy is an innovative therapy that looks at a persons core beliefs and puts links into their past, usually from childhood where needs were not met.  The person forms maladaptive coping styles to compensate or protect themselves.  Schema Therapies' goal is to put new coping styles in place and to get healing where emotional needs can be figured out and met.

Mindfulness and Meditation

Developing Mindfulness is fundamental in helping stop overthinking.  It also helps us to find calm and stability in our relationships.  It helps us to wake up to our lives, to what is happening in this moment, with an attitude of kindness towards ourselves and our experience.  This “being with” ourselves is in contrast with more habitual states of mind in which we are often preoccupied with memories, fantasies, worries or planning.

Humanistic

Humanistic therapies focus on self-development, growth and responsibilities. They seek to help individuals recognise their strengths, creativity and choice in the 'here and now'. They include Person Centred, Gestalt and Reality Therapy.

Person Centred

Person-centred therapy focuses on an individual's self worth and values. Being valued as a person, without being judged, can help an individual to accept who they are, and reconnect with themselves.
 

 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy or CBT, is a talking therapy. It is proven to help treat a wide range of emotional and physical health conditions, including but not limited to Anxiety, Depression and Eating Disorders. CBT helps people to identify and challenge their negative thinking and unhelpful behaviour. It does this through a goal-oriented, systematic process. By doing this, there is often a significant improvement in how a person feels and lives.

 

Reality Therapy

Reality Therapy is a practical method of helping people take better control of their lives. It assists people in identifying what they want and what they need and then in evaluating whether they can realistically attain what they want. It helps them examine their own behaviors and evaluate them with clear criteria. 

This is followed by positive planning designed to help control their lives as well as fulfill their realistic wants and needs.
