Mindfulness Integrated Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MiCBT)
Mindfulness Integrated Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MiCBT) is a type of therapy that focuses on learning to use mindfulness skills in daily life.
Mindfulness involves paying attention to each event experienced in the present moment within our body and mind, with a non-judgmental, non-reactive and accepting attitude.
In learning to be mindful, we can begin to counter many of our everyday sufferings such as stress, anxiety and depression because we are learning to experience events in a more impersonal and detached way.
Mindfulness used in MiCBT has its roots in Vipassana meditation which was taught in India 2500 years ago and spread across all of Asia.
Vipassana means “insight” or “seeing things as they truly are”. Central principles and mechanisms of mindfulness include equanimity and impermanence.
Narrative therapy is a therapeutic modality that gives a person perspective on their problems. It supports people in relying on their own abilities to minimize their problems. In our lives personal experience often becomes our personal stories. In narrative therapy, we explore life through the lens of these stories during gentle, client led sessions.
Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT)
Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) is a modality of psychotherapy that focuses on practical, short-term therapy. This therapy method helps clients develop skills and strategies for becoming and staying healthy. CBT focuses on the present — the problems that come up in one’s day-to-day life and how these may be influenced by underlying schemas. Within this model, Feelings, Thoughts, and Behaviours and their relationships with each other are explored in depth, with a goal of creating healthy self-talk, behaviours and less reactivity to emotions.
Humanistic (Existential) Therapy
Humanistic (Existential) Therapy is a kind of psychotherapy that champions self-awareness and personal growth by focusing on a client’s present reality and studying and altering specific patterns of response. This modality is designed to help clients realize their potential and thrive.
Attachment informed therapy
This modality is an attachment-based approach to therapy. It can be used with couples, individuals, parents and children to promote healthy attachment and brain growth. It looks at the connection between the early attachment experiences with primary caregivers, typically parents, and examining the impact of this in current relationships. Once unhealthy patterns are found, treatment includes supporting the person in re-patterning their connection style with others in a way that is more healthy and sustainable for them.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a therapeutic modality based on the concept that emotions and attachment are key to a person’s identity. According to this method, emotions are a roadmap for individual choice and decision making. EFT assumes that lacking emotional awareness or avoiding unpleasant feelings can cause harm as well as damaging our relationships.
