Types of Therapies

Traditional Therapies:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): This evidence-based approach focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors. CBT helps clients develop coping strategies to deal with challenges in a more positive way.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): EMDR is a form of psychotherapy designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories. Through guided eye movements, EMDR helps the brain reprocess trauma so that healing can occur.
  • Psychodrama Therapy (weekly): A form of group therapy that uses dramatic action to explore and solve personal problems. It allows participants to enact scenarios from their lives, offering insights and resolutions.

  • Sound Bath: An immersive listening experience where participants are “bathed” in sound waves produced by instruments like gongs, singing bowls, and chimes, promoting deep relaxation and healing.
  • Experiential Therapy (hiking/nature): Engaging in outdoor activities such as hiking allows individuals to connect with nature, promoting physical health, reducing symptoms of stress, and enhancing mindfulness.
