I use modern, evidence-based approaches. They include:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an effectively proven treatment that revolves around cognitions (thoughts) and behavior. Together, we investigate what thoughts are limiting and lead to unpleasant feelings.
We often see that the way of dealing with these emotions (coping) can be destructive and can hold us back from the way we actually want to act, feel and think. You will learn how to convert these negative thoughts into more realistic thoughts, and improve your sense of direction in the way you want to look at life.
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
“ It’s not the aim of mindfulness to make you feel better, but to become better at feeling”.
Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) is an approach that is effective for people struggling with stress, anxiety, depression and pain. MBSR uses a combination of mindfulness, body awareness, meditation, yoga and exploration of patterns of behavior, thinking, feeling and action.
Mindfulness can be understood as the non-judgmental acceptance and investigation of present experience, including body sensations, internal mental states, thoughts, emotions, impulses and memories, in order to reduce suffering or distress and to increase well-being.
Mindfulness meditation is a method by which attention skills are cultivated, emotional regulation is developed, and rumination and worrying are significantly reduced.
Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT)
ACT stands for Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (Hayes, Wilson & Strosahl). This is a third generation behavioral therapy that helps clients to deal flexibly with the obstacles they encounter (Acceptance), so that they can continue to invest in the things they really consider important (Commitment).
We will go through six processes/skills that will enhance your psychological flexibility. The aim of ACT is not to reduce your symptoms or issues, but to develop resilience, becoming better at dealing with what is.
Chronic Stress Reversal Method (CSR)
The CSR Method treats stress symptoms and burnout from a psycho-biological approach. This means that you will be coached on three levels: body, behavior and psyche. “CSR” stands for Chronic Stress Reversal: reversing and restoring the (pathogenic) effects of chronic stress.
