The first step in any good therapeutic intervention is assessment. Assessment is the gathering of data that is used to come to a conclusion regarding the psychological state of a particular individual. It also informs the intervention and strategies that will be used in your treatment. That way treatment is more targeted and effective. The information is gathered using interviews, observations, and testing. It also helps to measure the changes you make during therapy.
Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy (talking therapy) based on the idea of how you think and act affects how you feel. It can help in different situations — with both mental and physical health problems. CBT can apply to all types of problems, including anxiety, stress, and depression. Clients find it easy to use and implement.
ACT helps individuals recognize ways in which their attempts to suppress, manage, and control emotional experiences create challenges. By recognizing and addressing these challenges, individuals can become better able to make room for values-based actions that support well-being. The Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) encourages people to embrace their thoughts and feelings rather than fighting or feeling guilty for them. ACT paired with mindfulness-based therapy offers clinically effective treatment.
Schema therapy can help individuals identify the thought and behaviour patterns underlying and perpetuating mental health conditions. The treatment approach integrates elements from cognitive behavioural therapy, attachment theory, and other approaches. Schema therapy is particularly helpful for those with deep-rooted difficulties that relate to attachment difficulties or past trauma.
DBT, a form of cognitive behaviour therapy, is designed to help people change unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving while also accepting who they are. It helps you learn to manage your emotions by letting you recognise, experience, and accept them. DBT can also help you understand why you might harm yourself, so you are more likely to change your harmful behaviour.
