Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
In Cognitive Behavioural Therapy we start with analysing thoughts and then look at how they are tied into our emotions and behaviours. At times we are so locked into our thought patterns that it is difficult to see that another option might be possible. By employing new thoughts, we are giving ourselves a chance to feel differently, act differently and attract different results.
Somatic therapy is focused on the body. The difficult events from our past often leave a mark as pain gets trapped in the body creating a blockage. Somatic therapy aims at releasing these blockages, it includes accessing difficult memories and learning to re-process them through a different type of body response.
In Narrative Therapy we look at stories that we have been told throughout our lives. These stories are about who we are, where we come from, what our potential is and what we can achieve. Narrative Therapy aims at identifying unhelpful, disruptive stories that may have an impact on us today and helps us create new, empowering stories that can become our future way of experiencing life.
Positive Psychology focuses on people's strengths and what brings positive energy to our lives. It does not deny that painful things happen and it does not deny trauma. It understands the need for healing, while at the same time proposes, that we can go further in order to fulfil our potential. Positive psychology's research focuses on when people are in their best, it also offers a lens of seeing the world as full of opportunities.
