Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that has been shown to be effective in treating a range of mental health disorders including depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.
How it works:
CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts, feelings and behaviours are interconnected and that negative thinking patterns can lead to negative feelings and behaviours. CBT focuses on helping people to identify and change these negative thinking patterns, which can then lead to improvements in mood and behaviour.
Attachment is an important component of Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP). AEDP focuses on healing attachment wounds and helping people feel safe and secure in relationships.
AEDP focuses on creating a secure bond between therapist and client that can help the client feel safe and understood. The therapist also uses experiential techniques such as mindfulness and focusing to help the client process and heal from their trauma. AEDP has been shown to be particularly effective in supporting people who have experienced complex trauma, such as multiple types of abuse or neglect. If you are looking for a form of therapy that can help you overcome your trauma, you should see a therapist who specialises in AEDP.
ACT is a psychological intervention that has been shown to be effective in treating a number of mental disorders.
The main goal of ACT is to help people accept the things that are beyond their control and commit to taking action that is consistent with their values. This sounds like a simple task, but can be surprisingly difficult for many people.
How it works:
An important part of ACT is helping people to become aware of their thoughts and feelings without getting caught up in them. This enables people to see their thoughts as mere thoughts rather than facts. It also helps them to develop a more flexible relationship with their emotions so that they are less likely to be controlled by them.
By learning to accept the things that are beyond their control and to focus on actions that are consistent with their values, people who undergo ACT can expect to improve their mental health.
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is a form of cognitive behavioural therapy that was originally developed to treat borderline personality disorder. However, research has shown that DBT can also be effective for a variety of other conditions, including eating disorders, substance abuse, depression and anxiety.
How it works:
The core principle of DBT is that it is better to accept both the positive and negative aspects of our lives rather than trying to deny or change them. This acceptance is balanced with the effort to change something, which leads to the dialectical approach of the therapy. In other words, DBT tries to find a balance between accepting things as they are and trying to change them. In this way, DBT can help people to better accept themselves and their lives, while giving them the tools and motivation they need to make positive changes.
