Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
 

Common beliefs of CBT:

 

  • your thoughts influence how you feel and act

 

  • it's important to challenge and test the validity of your negative thoughts

 

  • you can choose to create alternate realistic thoughts

 

  • changing negative thoughts leads to changes in feelings and behavior

 

 
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
 

A fascinating technique that draws from the teachings of acupuncture (chi/energy) and modern psychology.

 

Tapping on these points sends a calming message to a very primitive area of our brain.

 

It signals to the brain that it is safe to relax.

 

EFT is simply based on talking about the problem (which we do in sessions anyway) while I guide you in tapping through the points.

 

It may sound a bit "weird" but there is significant research to support this excellent method.

 

You will feel the calming effect on the mind and body.
