TYPES OF THERAPY

PSYCHODYNAMIC THERAPY

Psychodynamic therapy is a traditional form of treatment that is based on the principle that our unconscious thoughts and feelings influence our actions and behaviors. In order to resolve our current problems, we first need to understand how to unravel and understand painful memories and experiences in our past.


In order to improve emotional health, clients are encouraged to explore past relationships and experiences to discover how those dynamics influence current behavior.

COGNITIVE-BEHAVIORAL THERAPY

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is a method of treatment that emphasizes the interconnectivity of our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Our past experiences can shape the way we think, and when we continue irrational thinking patterns and self-destructive behaviors, we can fall into a cycle of negativity.


CBT encourages people to break down their problems into smaller parts, teaching them to set small goals in order to overcome larger problems. Improving your outlook on life as well as your ability to cope with future hardships is the reason CBT is widely accepted by professionals to treat mental and physical health problems.
