Cognitive Behavior Therapy
Cognitive Behavior Theory (CBT) is a time-sensitive, structured, present-oriented psychotherapy directed toward solving current problems and teaching clients skills to modify dysfunctional thinking and behavior. CBT states that the way that individuals perceive a situation is more closely connected to their reaction than the situation itself. CBT helps people change their unhelpful thinking and behavior that lead to enduring improvement in their mood and functioning. Rational Emotive and Solution-Focused therapies falls under this category.
Psychodynamic Theory emphasizes unconscious psychological processes that creates one’s personality, world-view, and respective behavior and relational patterns, and contends that childhood experiences are crucial in shaping adult personality. This includes Psychoanalytic Theory, Object Relations theory. The recent ACE (Adverse Childhood Events) research strongly supports this approach.
Mindfulness/Buddhist Psychotherapy, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, is the integration of the ancient Eastern psychological tradition of mindfulness, meditation, compassion and forgiveness teachings with modern Western psychological tradition of analyzing and investigating one’s developmental conditioning.
Transpersonal Psychotherapy or “spiritual psychology” promotes the idea or experience in which the sense of identity or self extends beyond (trans) the individual or personal to encompass wider aspects of humankind, life, or universe for an psychic shift or change.
Energy Psychology is a collection of mind-body approaches for understanding and improving human functioning. EP focuses on the relationship between thoughts, emotions, sensations, and behaviors, and known bioenergy systems (such as meridians and the biofield).
