You deserve therapy that is unique to you. . .
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) offer various techniques to assist in the management of difficult thoughts and emotions. CBT encourages recognition of thought patterns and core beliefs that inhibit positive thinking. CBT encourages one to change negative thoughts and beliefs. ACT promotes engagement in values directed choice making, and encourages one to defuse negative thoughts and expand around or accept difficult emotions.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing. EMDR is one of the most evidence based treatments for trauma. It uses elements of cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness, with bilateral stimulation (tapping of alternate hands or eye movements), to encourage the brain to reprocess and diminish the intensity of difficult memories and experiences.
