Methods - Something For Everyone

Therapy Styles Used By Our Psychologists In Crows Nest To Help Treat Your Issues

1. Most Famous Method

The original therapy method for issues like anxiety, depression and stress (and most others) is called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). It’s essentially about learning to change unhelpful beliefs, thoughts and behaviours that are causing you issues. This method has been scientifically proven to be effective for many people.

2. The More Zen Way

There’s a therapy method called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) which evolved from CBT that takes principles from Buddhism like “mindfulness”. It’s more about learning to sit with and observe thoughts and feelings arise and not trying to change or react to them. It’s an effective method that helps you to function better and a lot of evidence has been shown to prove this.

3. Less Talk More Action

If your personality doesn’t resonate with CBT or ACT and you prefer a more to-the-point approach there’s something called Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT). It is a purely goal-oriented and solution-focused method. It’s pretty simple – we work out exactly what you want and find ways to get you there and solutions to achieve that.

4. Distress-Coping Method

A powerful method for treating issues such as personality disorders, complex trauma, PTSD, drug and alcohol addictions, eating disorders, mood disorders, depression, self-harm and suicidality is called Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). It has a range of tools and coping strategies to manage intense negative emotions and distress. Much evidence shows its effectiveness for many people.
