Therapeutic Framework

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a psycho-social intervention that aims to improve mental health. CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems. CBT is an accepted theory for many presenting concerns in therapy. It is intended to change and reframe people’s negative thoughts, beliefs and behaviours to positive thoughts, beliefs and behaviours. By recognizing the limiting beliefs at play and the behaviours, thoughts and cognitions that are associated with the belief our clients get an accurate view of some of the obstacles they have been trying to tackle for years. Generally, the symptoms that they present within an intake session are linked to one or more limiting beliefs. Once a limiting belief can be eliminated then the maladaptive behaviours, thoughts and cognitions can be eliminated as well. (Wikipedia)

Strength based therapy

Strength-based therapy is a type of positive psychotherapy and counselling that focuses more on your internal strengths and resourcefulness, and less on weaknesses, failures, and shortcomings. This focus sets up a positive mindset that helps you build on you best qualities, find your strengths, improve resilience and change worldview to one that is more positive. A positive attitude, in turn, can help your expectations of yourself and others become more reasonable. (
