Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a future-focused structured therapy that focuses on the difficulties you are experiencing in the here and now. CBT focuses on your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and helps you to learn specific techniques to overcome your problems.

There are in-between session tasks whereby you put these techniques into practice. 

Counselling

The focus in counselling is usually on past events or present difficulties that are continuing to trouble you. It helps you to explore your feelings and thoughts in relation to these through talking and exploration so that you can begin to understand how this is affecting you and how best to manage it. The focus for the sessions is largely based on what you feel is important to work through.

EMDR

EMDR is an effective treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder.

During reprocessing, the client recalls a disturbing event for a short period (30 seconds) whilst simultaneously undergoing bilateral stimulation that can consist of eye movements from side to side, vibrations or tapping movements via headphones.

The client is not asked to describe the event in detail in contrast to trauma focused CBT. 

The brain’s information processing system make new internal connections as the client focuses on the thoughts, emotions, memories and other associations(reprocessing) reducing current distress (desensitisation).
