COGNITIVE BEHAVIOUR THERAPY (CBT)

CBT is a form of psychotherapy that works by helping people change the way they think about themselves and about situations they find themselves in.  In CBT the emphasis is placed on negative thought patterns that influence and determine out emotions and general psychological well being.  It teaches people specific skills and strategies to alter these negative thoughts so that you can become more adaptive and flexible, and behave in more positive and helpful ways.

HUMANISTIC THERAPY

This approach to counselling works towards understanding the client’s experience.  It views people as having innate ability to develop to their full potential.  This approach focuses on recognising human capacity in areas such as creativity, personal growth, and choice.  It focuses on an individual’s self-worth and values.

INTERPERSONAL PSYCHOTHERAPY (IPT)

Interpersonal psychotherapy focuses on interpersonal relationships and its connections to current symptoms and distress.  The main areas that therapy focuses on are interpersonal disputes and conflicts, role transitions, marked changes in life, grief and loss, and interpersonal deficits and sensitivities.  Clients learn to function effectively in current relationships and thereby reduce distress.

EMOTION-FOCUSED THERAPY (EFT)

Emotion-focused therapy is an empirically supported, humanistic therapy.  Emotion-focused therapy was developed to help people become more aware of their emotions so they can use them more adaptively.  EFT can help reduce depression and interpersonal problems and increase self-compassion, assertiveness, and self-esteem.

ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY (ACT)

ACT is a mindfulness-based, values-directed therapy.  There are in essence two important components to ACT: (1) acceptance of the uncontrollable thoughts and feelings you experience, and (2) commitment and action towards living a life that you value.  The aim of ACT is to create a full, rich, and vital life, while accepting the pain that inevitably goes with it.
