Here is an overview of the types of psychotherapy I often use in my consultations:
In Gestalt Based Therapy, Is focused on personal responsibility and on the individual's experience of the present in the therapist-client relationship. There is also a focus on the environmental and social conditions and the self-regulatory adjustments that result from the client's overall situation.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a well-recognized and well-documented therapy form that focuses very psecifically on the problem that the client comes with, such as anxiety, depression or obsessive-compulsive thoughts. Specific tools and strategies are used to loosen up the current problems. These tools help increase the client's experience of control over your own psyche and actions.
Existential psychotherapy focuses on the client's relationship to existential conditions, such as death, loneliness or the freedom of choice. These are conditions that, according to the theory, can be so overwhelming that they become paralyzing. This may sound rather abstract, but in practice, the therapy adjusts to the problems that the client comes with. (Ref: Psykiatrifonden.dk)
Mindfulness therapy focuses on expanding our attention to include the full spectrum of our experience: ie. physical sensations, thoughts, feelings, sounds - as they arise in the present. By developing this skill, we improve our ability to notice and accept everything we experience. Aided by the therapist's gentle guidance, the client's tolerance for the difficult and painful emotions is extended. Thus, the ability to accommodate and accept all aspects of self is strenghed.
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is an effective way of clearing out unwanted feelings and limiting beliefs. This creates emotional energi and space required to enhance positivity and well-being both mentally and psychologically.
Somatic Experiencing (SE) is aimed at relieving the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental and physical trauma-related health problems by focusing on the client's perceived body sensations. It was created by trauma therapist Peter A. Levine.
All of the techniques and approaches I use, have been well researched and proven to be beneficial.
