General information about Psychotherapy:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): CBT is a widely practiced, evidence-based therapeutic approach that focuses on the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. It aims to identify and challenge unhelpful thought patterns and beliefs that contribute to emotional distress or problematic coping strategies. Through collaborative efforts, CBT seeks to modify cognitive patterns and promote healthier emotional and behavioural responses.
  • Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT): CFT is a therapeutic approach rooted in the cultivation of self-compassion and understanding. CFT integrates cognitive-behavioural techniques with principles from evolutionary psychology. It emphasizes the importance of fostering a compassionate mindset, particularly toward oneself, and addresses issues related to shame, self-criticism, and the development of emotional regulation skills. CFT aims to create an inner environment of warmth and self-support to enhance mental well-being.
  • Mindfulness: Mindfulness therapy involves cultivating present-moment awareness and non-judgmental acceptance of one’s thoughts and feelings. Rooted in Eastern contemplative traditions, mindfulness practices are integrated into therapeutic approaches. Mindfulness-based interventions aim to enhance self-awareness, reduce reactivity to stressors, and promote a balanced perspective on one’s experiences. These practices are often used to address a range of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, stress, chronic pain, and trauma.
