At North Land Counselling Group we offer individual, couples, and family therapy utilizing a wide variety of therapeutic modalities, including those listed below. Please note that the types of therapy offered vary between therapists, depending on their training/specializations.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
A type of therapy where a therapist uses a structured process to help their clients quickly become aware of negative or inaccurate thinking patterns so they can better cope and respond to them in a more effective manner.
A form of therapy used primarily with children who may not be able to process their own emotions or articulate problems to parents or other adults. A trained therapist can use playtime to observe and gain insights into a child’s problems. The therapist can then help the child explore emotions and deal with unresolved trauma. Through play, children can learn new coping mechanisms and how to redirect challenging behaviors.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Unlike other treatments that focus on directly altering the emotions, thoughts and responses resulting from traumatic experiences, EMDR therapy focuses directly on the memory, and is intended to change the way that the memory is stored in the brain, thus reducing and eliminating the problematic symptoms.
Mindfulness is often considered as the state in which one become more aware of one's physical, mental, and emotional condition in the present moment, without becoming judgmental. Individuals may be able to pay attention to a variety of experiences, such as bodily sensations, cognitions, and feelings, and accept them without being influenced by them. Mindfulness practices help people better control their thoughts, rather than be controlled by them. Mindfulness is often incorporated into other therapeutic modalities.
Emotionally Focused Therapy
A short-term form of therapy that focuses on adult relationships and attachment/bonding. The therapist and clients look at patterns in the relationship and take steps to create a more secure bond and develop more trust to move the relationship in a healthier, more positive direction.
Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)
Works directly to reprogram the way in which distressing memories and images are stored in the brain so that they no longer trigger strong physical and emotional reactions. It accomplishes this through the use of rapid eye movements. Although techniques similar to these are used in other types of therapies (such as EMDR), ART’s directive approach can achieve rapid recovery from symptoms.
A process whereby clients explore their interests, preferred work style, and underlying beliefs so they can establish a rewarding career path.
Art therapy is a distinct discipline that incorporates creative methods of expression through visual art media.
