Clients will build a tool-kit of practical strategies to manage their thoughts and emotions in order to enhance well-being and quality of life. Cognitive therapy involves identifying and replacing habitual thought patterns and beliefs that are no longer useful with positive affirmations. Behavioural therapy involves identifying and practicing actions that reinforce the positive thoughts. Combine the two and your tool-kit for life is complete.
Meditation and relaxation techniques help to cultivate the observer, to diminish negative thought patterns, including symptoms of anxiety and depression and to point the way to personal freedom and increased vitality.
Expressive Arts Therapy
Expressive arts techniques are designed to tap into the creative part of our brains that provide us with new ways of understanding ourselves and our relationship with the world around us. These exercises include drawing and painting, collage-making, gestalt and narrative therapy and journalling.
