TYPES OF THERAPY
At Your Chair Therapy we tend to dip into multiple modalities throughout therapy dependent on your needs rather than sticking to one particular modality throughout therapy.
COGNITIVE-BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (CBT)
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a here-and-now approach to examining how thoughts, feelings, and behaviours are connected and impact our overall well-being. CBT focuses on identifying maladaptive thinking and behavioural patterns and implementing specific strategies to tackle how we feel.
CBT is an active, problem-focused approach that helps to directly challenge various unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviour. CBT is an effective time-limited form of therapy that is highly effective when there is a clear goal to focus therapy on.
“Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, for it becomes your destiny”
— Lao Tzu
ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY (ACT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) uses a mix of acceptance, mindfulness, and behaviour change strategies to improve mental wellbeing and increase psychological flexibility.
ACT is a very experiential type of therapy that uses in-session exercises, metaphor, language, and physical movement to focus on living a valued life instead of getting stuck in needing to “get rid” of suffering.
One of the biggest skills gained through ACT is listening to your own self-talk—the way you verbalize and understand things like past trauma, physical limitations, past relationships, or anything else on your plate. And, then with that understanding, choosing how to move through it—either by change or by acceptance.
“Is a thought overwhelming you? Saying the thought in a funny voice can help you defuse from it!”
— Use of the defusion skill in ACT
COMPASSION FOCUSED THERAPY (CFT)
Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) is an evidence-based psychotherapy which emphasizes the importance of applying compassion – for the self, for your loved ones, and for strangers – for living a healthy and happy life.
The central therapeutic technique of CFT is compassionate mind training, which teaches the skills and attributes of compassion. Compassionate mind training helps transform problematic patterns of cognition and emotion related to anxiety, anger, shame and self-criticism.
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
— Leo Buscaglia
