Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) by Dr. Steven Hayes
ACT is a unique empirically based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies to bolster commitment and behaviour change strategies, to help individuals develop greater psychological flexibility. ACT engages each individual in present moment awareness, being consistent with chosen values, being aware of how language plays a part in entangling us with unhelpful strategies, and creating choice in each persons life with which to move forward positively.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) by Dr. Aaron T. Beck
CBT is a widely utilised form of talk therapy that helps with a broad range of presentations, such as anxiety and depression. CBT therapists tend to focus on current problems by helping individuals understand the connection between the way they are thinking and the effect this can have on feelings, physical sensations, and the choices made as resulting behaviours. CBTR therapists assist in breaking difficult situations into smaller parts so that the thinking patterns can be observed, and where they are problematic, help to discover different ways of thinking that can bring about more positive and desired results in the lives of individuals. Like most therapies, weekly sessions can produced quickest results and maintaining this pattern for more a few sessions (5-24) can ensure longer-lasting effects as each person internalises these new ways of thinking an functioning in the world with more realistic expectations and, hopefully, more of the results one desires in life.

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) by Dr. Marsha Linehan
DBT is an evidence-based programme designed to treat individuals who have difficulty in regulating their emotions and behaviours. Developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan, DBT was originally created to work with chronically suicidal, self-injuring adult women who showed symptomology aligned with a diagnosis related to Borderline Personality Disorder. It has since been adapted for all adults, as well as for teens and families. It is posited that working through supportive and validation therapeutic environment and learning behavioural skills that help to develop improved impulse control, emotional regulation, and overall functioning, can replace unhelpful and harmful ways of thinking and behaviour with healthier and more life-affirming ones. The main goals of this approach are to, decrease behaviours that interfere with treatment, decrease suicidal, non-suicidal self-injurious behaviours, and other problematic behaviours such as binging/purging, substance use, truancy, and similar, increase the ability to self-regulate emotions and behaviours, teach the ability to see both (or more) sides of an issue and see the “middle path”, and to build a life worth living.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) by Dr. Francine Shapiro
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.  Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal.  EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.  When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound.  If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain.  Once the block is removed, healing resumes.  EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes.  The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health.  If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering.  Once the block is removed, healing resumes.  Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.
