Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
Is an evidence based therapy that is believed to be effective in treating a number of conditions including Depression, Anxiety and Panic Attacks. We identify and challenge the negative thoughts that are influencing our depression, and challenge the heightened sense of danger experienced with anxiety.
Therapist and client work together to challenge the distorted thoughts. Therapy seeks to create a more balanced link between thoughts and reality. CBT aims to gradually remove safety behaviours adopted by the client which only perpetuate the distorted thinking in a vicious cycle. The aim of treatment is to assist the individual to return to a place of calm and clarity.
Reality therapy is a therapeutic approach that focuses on problem-solving and making better choices in order to achieve specific goals. Developed by Dr. William Glasser, reality therapy is focused on the here and now rather than the past.
