Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that helps a person to change unhelpful or unhealthy thinking habits, feelings and behaviours.  CBT involves the use of practical self-help strategies, which are designed to bring about positive and immediate changes in the person’s quality of life.

The core philosophy of CBT is that thoughts, feelings and behaviours combine to influence a person’s quality of life.  CBT aims to teach people that it is possible to have control over one’s thoughts, feelings and behaviours. CBT helps the person to challenge and overcome automatic beliefs, and use practical strategies to change or modify their behaviour. The result is more positive feelings, which in turn lead to more positive thoughts and behaviours.


Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Training

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) gets it name from one of its core messages: accept what is out of your personal control, and commit to action that improves and enriches your life.
The aim of ACT is to maximise human potential for a rich full and meaningful life. ACT  (which is pronounced as the word 'act', not as the initials) does this by:
a) teaching you psychological skills to deal with your painful thoughts and feelings effectively – in such a way that they have much less impact and influence over you. (These are known as mindfulness skills.)
b) helping you to clarify what is truly important and meaningful to you  - ie your values - then use that knowledge to guide, inspire and motivate you to change your life for the better.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) involves recalling a stressful past event and “reprogramming” the memory in the light of a positive, self-chosen belief, while using rapid eye movements to facilitate the process.

Theories as to why EMDR works are still evolving, but many people have found EMDR to be extremely beneficial.


Clinical Hypnosis

Hypnosis is a method of communication that induces deep relaxation or a trance-like state. This trance state can occur naturally when our attention is very focused and free of distractions. Our attention can be focused either internally (on thoughts---internal self-talk or images or both) or externally (on an activity or a puzzle). Our attention is so narrow that almost all other things that are occurring at the time are blocked or ignored.  Daydreaming and meditation are typical examples of such a trance state.

When used in a therapeutic environment hypnosis can be used to assist the clients to enter a relaxed, comfortable, trance state for obtaining specific therapeutic outcomes. With clinical hypnosis, the therapist induces the trance state with the client and makes hypnotic suggestions designed to help the client to create positive changes in their life.
