If you’re particularly down on yourself and have negative perceptions about the world around you, cognitive therapy can challenge these unhealthy thoughts and beliefs and ultimately alter unwanted behavioural patterns. By examining the interconnections between your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, you can effectively manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. Cognitive therapy is particularly useful to help combat mood disorders, including depression.
Dialectical behaviour therapy is a specific type of cognitive-behavioural treatment that is most commonly used for people with borderline personality disorder (BPD), depression, eating disorders, and for those who constantly struggle with difficulties managing their emotions in challenging times in life.

Studies have shown that dialectic behavioural therapy is effective in helping patients learn how to manage their emotions properly, stop suicidal thoughts, reduce anger and self-injury, and overcome eating disorders and drug-abuse.

You have the power within you to make the changes needed to dramatically improve your life, and at Elements, we can help you foster that innate strength. Through emotionally focused therapy, individuals, couples and families can benefit through a combination of person-centred and systemic therapy sessions that are typically short-lived. You can realistically expect to see significant improvements in your emotional well being in as little as 8 to 20 sessions.

Emotional focused therapy basically involves tapping into a person’s problematic emotional states, and activating the person’s innate potential to manage emotions and use them productively to combat various problems.

If you’ve suffered some form of trauma that has left a psychological and emotional scar, then eye movement desensitization reprocessing can help. It focuses on disturbing memories as the cause of psychopathology. At Elements, we use this effective one-on-one form of psychotherapy to help reduce trauma-related anxiety, stress and depressions that is typical with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). By improving your overall mental health functioning, you can ward off these distressful feelings and go on to lead a healthy, happy, productive life.
