These are just a number of different therapies that can be offered either as a stand alone therapy or integrated into your individual therapy.
C.B.T. (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy)
C.B.T. focusses on your thoughts, feelings and subsequent behaviour. It allows you time to reflect on any negative automatic thoughts you may have that lead to strong emotions with a view to changing or challenging those thoughts. The therapy is widely used today, particularly with depression, anxiety, obesity, low self worth and stress.
Mindfulness is a relatively new therapy but one which is growing in popularity. It focusses on deliberately paying attention to whatever you are thinking, feeling and doing in the present moment. Mindfulness therapy helps us to allow our strong emotions rather than to stop our feelings and to notice our thoughts rather than trying to battle with them. It enables us to stay in the moment and focus our mind rather than worrying about what is ahead. It is becoming very popular with anxiety and stress related disorders.
Transactional Analysis is a theoretical model based on the idea that we have three ego states of Parent, Adult, Child within us that begin in our childhood. Very often we can become aware of having a critical parental voice within us towards ourselves and others and also strongly emotionally react out of a compliant child like state or an adaptive 'good child' state in relationships.
Working with these three different parts can help us understand when we react particularly out of one of the stronger positions and begin to focus on strengthening the Adult position.
