How Specific Types of Therapy Can Support You

No two mental health struggles are the same, and there are a number of different avenues to explore when it comes to seeking professional support. The most important approach to counselling and psychotherapy is the therapeutic relationship you create with your therapist.

Depending on the type of therapy you choose, you could find support in almost any area of your life, including relationships, work-life balance, self-esteem and social anxiety.

Types of Therapy:
Cognitive & Behavioural Therapies

Cognitive & Behavioural Therapies are based on the ways in which we think (cognitive) and/or behave. These therapies recognise that it is possible to change or recondition our thoughts and behaviours in order to overcome some issues and impact our emotions. At TAC, we have a number of therapists specialising in this type of therapy.

Types of Therapy:
Psychodynamic & Psychoanalytic Therapies

Psychodynamic and psychoanalytic therapies look at how your unconscious thoughts and perceptions developed throughout your childhood, and how these may impact your current thoughts and behaviours.

These therapies aim at creating deep-seated change in your emotional development, helping you to understand and resolve your problems by increasing your awareness of yourself and your relationships.

Types of Therapy:
Humanistic Therapies

Humanistic therapies focus on self-development, growth and responsibilities. They seek to help you find your strengths, creativity and choice in any situation. It is generally based on the belief that we all naturally gravitate towards what is good for us; only being temporarily blocked by difficult life experiences. Specialists offering this type of therapy believe that with the right support, we can, and will, all self-actualise (meaning we will reach our best potential).

Types of Therapy:
Arts Therapies

Creative expression plays an important role in our development, and in many cases it has been found to assist in relieving mental distress. Arts therapies use creative arts in a therapeutic setting with a trained therapist in order to encourage individuals to draw on their inner creative resources and express their feelings without necessarily having to use words.

Other Types of Therapy:

Although there are four main categories that psychological therapies usually fall into, there are some therapies that aren’t quite fitting for these categories. These types of therapies are equally helpful for some conditions, and like all other types of therapy offered at The Awareness Centre, we have a range of dedicated specialists for each approach.
