CBT focuses on how your thoughts, beliefs and actions affect your emotions and your relationships. Sometimes it is not so much an event, but your interpretation of it, that affects you deeply. If you are the type of person who loves homework outside your counselling sessions, this may be a great option for you!
One of the most heavily researched-based of all therapeutic approaches, EMDR is effective at reducing the effects of traumatic events. In fact, An EMDR research study, conducted by Kaiser HMO, showed that 100% of patients with single incident trauma no longer carried a diagnosis of PTSD after EMDR treatment. Both the The American Psychiatric Association and the Veterans Administration cite EMDR therapy as an effective PTSD treatment.
The HeartMath technique meditation is a heart-focused breathing meditation that can help you quickly change from feeling stressed to feeling calm. Science-based and used worldwide, HeartMath meditation uses breathing techniques to bring about coherence - the alignment of your physical, mental and emotional systems to work in sync.
ACT is an action-oriented approach to psychotherapy that stems from traditional behavior therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. This can help you learn to stop avoiding, denying, and struggling with your inner emotions and, instead, accept that these deeper feelings are appropriate responses to certain situations that should not prevent you from moving forward in your life! With this understanding, you can begin to accept hardships and commit to making necessary changes in your behavior, regardless of what is going on in your life. ACT is especially useful in treating panic attacks.
Narrative therapy is a style of therapy that can help you become - and embrace being - an expert in you own life. In narrative therapy, there is an emphasis on the stories that you develop and carry with you through your life. As you experience events and interactions, you give meaning to those experiences and they, in turn, influence how you see yourself and the world. You can carry multiple stories at once, such as those related to your self-esteem, abilities, relationships, and work. Narrative therapy seeks to have an empowering effect and offer counseling that is non-blaming and non-pathological in nature.
Experiential therapy is a type of therapy that allows you to use expressive tools, activities, and other methods to reenact or recreate specific situations from past and present situations in your life. Experiential therapy can help you analyze and release negative thoughts and emotions that are associated with certain memories or situations that you may be subconsciously or consciously blocking out or denying. Healthy coping mechanisms are taught during experiential therapy exercises to set you up for life after addiction treatment.
