The relationship between the events in our lives, they way we think about them, and the way we feel about them is very complex. Sometimes it’s almost as if the “thought train” never stops. Stealing moments of precious sleep and peace from our lives. Sometimes we can become fixated on making sure negative emotions don’t take up space in our minds. Sometimes it’s like no matter how many positive things we have to focus on their are always still more painful things that creep in. Like a never ending game of chess, where the black pieces are our painful thoughts and feelings and the white pieces represent the experiences we like or enjoy. But what if there was an option that didn’t involve fighting with yourself or your experience at all? Would you give up the fight in exchange for freedom?
Solution Focused & Brief
Unlike traditional forms of therapy that take time to analyze problems, pathology and past life events, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) concentrates on finding solutions in the present time and exploring one’s hope for the future to find quicker resolution of one’s problems. This method takes the approach that you know what you need to do to improve your own life and, with the appropriate coaching and questioning, are capable of finding the best solutions.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
The aim of acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is to develop a characteristic called psychological flexibility. This quality is developed by engaging in 6 core processes that help the change our relationship to our experiences.
