Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) works directly to reprogram the way in which distressing memories and images are stored in the brain so that they no longer trigger strong physical and emotional reactions. ART accomplishes this through the use of rapid eye movements similar to eye movements that occur during dreaming. Although techniques similar to these are used in other types of therapies (such as EMDR), ART’s very specific and directive approach can achieve rapid recovery from symptoms and reactions that may have been present for many years. ART combines long respected, sound treatment practices with safe and effective methods validated by current scientific research studies conducted by the University of South Florida.
Attachment-based therapy is an approach to therapy that specifically targets those thoughts, feelings, communications, behaviors, and interpersonal exchanges that individuals have learned either to suppress and avoid or to amplify and overemphasize because of early attachment experiences.
Internal Family Systems is a transformative, evidence-based psychotherapy that helps people heal by accessing and loving their protective and wounded inner parts. By helping people first access their Self and, from that core, come to understand and heal their parts, IFS creates inner and outer connectedness.
Somatic therapy is a form of body-centered therapy that looks at the connection of mind and body and uses both psychotherapy and physical therapies for holistic healing. In addition to talk therapy, somatic therapy practitioners use mind-body exercises and other physical techniques to help release the pent-up tension that is negatively affecting your physical and emotional wellbeing.
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based psychotherapeutic treatment that helps people learn how to identify and change unhelpful and automatic thought patterns that have a negative influence on behaviour and emotions. CBT also encourages development of strategies to help cope with overwhelming emotions and to modify unhelpful behavioural patterns.
Grounded in attachment theory, emotion-focused therapy (EFT) is a process-experiential humanistic approach, which recognizes the importance of both relationship and intervention skills. EFT views emotion as both adaptive and fundamental to human experience and emphasizes the importance of meaning making, and the connection between emotion and cognition.
Mindfulness is rooted in ancient Buddhist meditative practice. It consists off cultivating awareness of the mind and body and living in the here and now - without judgement. Mindfulness is a way of life or state of being that can be practiced both formally and informally. Evidence suggests that mindfulness meditation promotes metacognitive awareness, decreases rumination and enhances attentional capacities through gains in working memory. These cognitive gains, in turn, contribute to effective emotion-regulation strategies.
