Types of therapies

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

I strongly believe in applying evidence-based therapies that suit what you want out of therapy

Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT)

CBT is based on the idea that thoughts, feelings, what we do, and how our bodies feel, are all connected. If we change one of these we can alter all the others.


When we’re low or upset, we often fall into patterns of thinking and responding which can worsen how we feel. CBT works to help us notice and change problematic thinking styles or behaviour patterns so we can feel better. 


CBT is a collaborative therapy - it’s not something that is done to someone, it’s a way of working together with a CBT therapist on mutually agreed goals.

therapy (CfT)

CFT is based on the idea that shame and self-criticism are trans-diagnostic (e.g. higher levels are found in people with depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, personality disorders, PTSD) and can accentuate and maintain these disorders. Moreover, high levels of self-criticism have also been found to limit the effectiveness of standard therapies. One reason for such difficulties is that people may not have developed abilities to experience certain affiliative positive emotions such as safeness, reassurance and compassion.
