Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of treatment that focuses on examining the relationships between thoughts, feelings and behaviors. By exploring patterns of thinking that lead to self-destructive actions and the beliefs that direct these thoughts. Such as, people with mental illness and behavioral problems can modify their patterns of thinking and behaving by identifying triggers, thoughts, emotions and reactions.
Transactional Analysis (TA)
Transactional analysis is a talking therapy and sessions are designed to explore an individual’s personality and how this has been shaped by experience – particularly those stemming from childhood. This is achieved through skillful questioning and the utilization of various models, techniques and tools. Sessions can be carried out in the form of one-on-one counselling, or with families, couples or groups.
Trauma Informed Care
Trauma Informed Care is an organizational structure and treatment framework that involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. Trauma Informed Care also emphasizes physical, psychological and emotional safety as well as helps survivors rebuild a sense of control and empowerment.
Parent Child Interactive Therapy (PCIT)
Parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT) is an evidence-based treatment for young children, ages 2-7 with emotional and behavioral disorders that places emphasis on improving the quality of the parent-child relationship and changing parent-child interaction patterns. Children and their caregivers are seen together in PCIT. Most of the session time is spent coaching caregivers in the application of specific therapy skills. Therapists typically coach from an observation room with a one-way mirror into the playroom, using a “bug-in-the-ear” system for communicating to the parents as they play with their child. Concluding each session, therapist and caregiver together decide which skill to focus on most during daily 5-minute home practice sessions the following week.
