There are different types of psychotherapy and some types may work better for your situation. Our Holistic approach aims to calm both mind and body to form a transformational experience at The Calm.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a structured, time-limited, problem-focused and goal oriented form of psychotherapy. CBT helps people learn to identify, question and change how their thoughts, attitudes and beliefs relate to the emotional and behavioural reactions that cause them difficulty.

Dialectic Behavioural Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical means “the existence of opposites.” In DBT, people are taught two seemingly opposite strategies: acceptance (i.e., that their experiences and behaviours are valid), and change (i.e., that they have to make positive changes to manage emotions and move forward).

Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP)

A treatment for families with adopted or fostered children who had experienced neglect and abuse in their birth families and suffered from significant developmental trauma.

DDP is based on and brings together attachment theory, what we understand about developmental trauma, the neurobiology of trauma, attachment and caregiving, intersubjectivity theory and child development.

Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT)

Is a comprehensive and evidence-based approach that helps you become more aware of your surface and deeper emotions. Helps you transform old stuck patterns into fresh new feelings that better help you understand what you need in your present-day life.

EFT emphasizes the importance of emotions in our lives, highlighting their role in shaping our thoughts, behaviors, and relationships. Unlike other forms of therapy that focus solely on cognition or behavior, EFT places emotions at the center of the therapeutic process.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Is a type of mindful psychotherapy that helps you stay focused on the present moment and accept thoughts and feelings without judgment.

It aims to help you move forward through difficult emotions so you can put your energy into healing instead of dwelling on the negative. You’ll pick up a various coping mechanisms specifically designed for your situation, which you can use throughout your life to handle challenging experiences.

When we are no longer able to change a situation we are challenged to change ourselves.
