Cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT) is based on the notion that thoughts, feelings, what happens inside our body, and how we behave are all linked. This means that if there is a problem in one of these areas, it can affect the other areas. CBT is a type of therapy that can help to identify and change any unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that may be causing you difficulties.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is about learning to accept what is out of your control and committing to action that improves your life and makes it more meaningful. ACT teaches people skills for dealing with painful thoughts and feelings effectively while helping to clarify what is truly important to them and how they can behave according to their values.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a type of therapy that helps people to overcome emotional pain linked to distressing life experiences. It is based on the principal that, like our body heals itself from a cut, the mind is geared towards mental health. EMDR works to clear the block (i.e., psychological trauma) and facilitate the minds natural healing processes. There are different phases to the treatment and eye movements (or other bilateral stimulation) are used in part of the session.
