Learn More About Therapy

Did you know there are different types of therapy? Your therapist will be trained in one or more of these types. Different techniques work for different people. But don’t be overwhelmed – this breakdown will put it simply:
Acceptance Therapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT teaches ways to deal with any painful thoughts or feelings by using mindfulness. It helps you find out what is important and meaningful in your life. It then encourages you to use these values to guide and motivate you in future.
Cognitive Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

You may have heard of this one. CBT is an evidence-based hands-on approach. It uses problem-solving to change patterns of thinking and reduce unpleasant feelings.

Dance Therapy

Dance Movement Therapy (DMT)

DMT looks at the link between movement and emotion. This helps with self esteem, anxiety, and gives us a chance to express our feelings through dance.
Art Therapy

Art Therapy

Art therapy uses creativity to express emotions, identify feelings, and provide new coping skills in doing so. Techniques include drawing, painting, coloring, sculpting, or collage. There is creative freedom and you do not have to be a good artist!
Motivational Therapy

Motivational Interviewing

A method using motivational conversation with your therapist which increases your want to make changes in your life and the belief you can do so.
Music Therapy

Music Therapy

In your life, you have probably developed a powerful relationship with music. It can stir memories and impact our feelings, helping us to express our thoughts and share feelings. Many musical instruments and styles, including the voice, can be used. You can create your own music / songs where you can connect with the world and express yourself.
Play Therapy

Play Therapy makes telling your story or working through issues seem easier and less overwhelming. Sand tray therapy may also help you get in touch with your feelings which are hard to talk about.
Sleep Therapy

Sleep therapists promote healthy lifestyle tips and use CBT which helps identify and replace thoughts and behaviors that cause or worsen sleep with healthy habits that encourage sleep.
Drama Therapy

Drama Therapy

Drama uses techniques like play, projection, performance and improvisation to create positive, meaningful change. This type of therapy helps with transition, loss, social stigmatization, mood, anxiety, depression and can strengthen relationships.
