Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy that  explores how the client’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors influence each other.  CBT is a goal oriented, evidence-based treatment technique that is widely used due to its proven effectiveness. During CBT, you and your clinician will likely discuss adverse behaviors, your thoughts prior to, during and after the behavior and your feelings before during and after the behaviors.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Person-Centered Therapy

Person-Centered Therapy (PCT), is based on the belief that people know what it best for them and given the right tools and environment, they will make healthy choices. This form of therapy focuses on the client as the expert in their lives, while the therapists helps them explore what they are battling with and which solutions may be best. The most important factor in Person-Centered Therapy is the therapeutic relationship between the clinician and the client. The clinician provides an environment that fosters growth and development through congruence (genuineness), empathy and unconditional positive regard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing is a technique of Person Centered Therapy that according to it’s creators is a “directive method for enhancing intrinsic motivation to change by exploring and resolving ambivalence”. Ambivalence is having opposing feelings or ideas. In therapy, this usually surfaces as wanting to make a change, but engaging in behaviors that are prohibitive of that change being made. In motivational interviewing, the clinician assists clients explore how they truly feel about change or certain points of ambivalence. Resistance to change is addressed so that the client can adjust, instead of it being directly rejected.  To create an environment in which a client can genuinely assess their feelings, inhibitions and barriers to change, clinicians will often utilize the O.A.R.S method during motivational interviewing. O is for Open Questions. The clinician asks open ended questions for the client to reflect and explore. A is for affirmations. The clinician acknowledges and affirms accomplishments, insights or positive attributes of the client. R is for Reflective Listening. The clinician actively listens to the client and makes the client aware that they are heard, usually through reflective statement. S is for Summarizing. The clinician will give the client a summary of things that have been established, revealed or talked about to make sure they have an understanding of the client’s view and the client knows they have been heard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mindfulness/ Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy

Mindfulness and the therapies that derive from it are based on being in the “here and now”. Mindfulness meditation challenges the person to become completely aware of their current state of being, physical, emotional and psychological. The person assesses and accepts where they are currently, what their body is currently experiencing, what emotions they presently have and what thoughts are going through their head. As depression and anxieties are often the result of things that have happened or what we think can happen, being in the here and now causes our brains to recognize there is no actual present danger or trauma, changing our perspective. This change stops the brain from responding in a distressed state and our bodies follow.
