We aim not to restrict ourselves to one approach but instead integrate and apply different approaches to tailor our work according to individual’s needs.
We incorporate following approaches into our work:
Expressive Therapy is a psychotherapy that uses different forms of creativity (such as art, music, story) toward self-exploration and expression of thoughts and emotions in order to initiate change.
Play Therapy is an approach primarily used to help children explore their lives express themselves, and communicate their feelings and needs through play.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy uses practical and self-help strategies that help change and modify habits of thinking, feeling and behaviour. It is used to treat a wide range of psychological problems including anxiety disorders, depression and phobias.
Acceptance Commitment Therapy is an approach that helps to accept life difficulties and one’s own actions, be present in the moment, choose and take a valued direction, and take action.
Mindfulness-based Therapy is a combination of traditional types of therapy, such as cognitive behaviour therapy, and mindfulness techniques. Mindfulness is process of bringing one’s attention to what is going on inside and around us, in the present moment, and without judging.
Positive Therapy is based on three principles of hope, balance, and consultations. It emphasises the positive influences in people’s lives, such as strengths, and optimism in addition to finding happiness in every moment.
Story-telling Therapy contains several different approaches such as crafting a story using client’s verbal cues, telling a story with hidden message to activate client’s unconscious resources, or retelling a life event in a different and more positive way. The aim is to form healing internal visual and mental images that delivers new patterns and more specific suggestions for change.
