Cognitive Behavioural Therapies


Widely researched over most modalities, they are solid evidence-based approaches for anxiety disorders, depression, mood disorders, substance abuse disorder, and personality disorders. What separates cognitive therapies from traditional emotive therapy is the emphasis on the interplay of our thoughts, feelings and subsequent behaviour. An examination of the differing role of the therapist in the CT therapeutic relationship and the adaptive flexibility needs of the therapist  highlight the impact on therapeutic outcomes..

DBT enters the world of Zen Buddhism, mindfulness and the law of opposites. The interdependence of the therapist team and the coaching of the client in addition to their individual and group therapy sessions. Distress tolerance, emotion regulation, interpersonal relationships and mindfulness form the cornerstones of DBT. Theory, exercises and practice of the core elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, form the content of each class.
