What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?
Offered by Martin & Luckhurst Therapy & Consultation Services, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a focused approach psychologists use to treat those who feel out of control of their lives. CBT can help give you the tools to deal effectively with day-to-day challenges that are causing you undue anxiety. At Martin & Luckhurst, we will attend to what you specifically need and devise a plan that will work for you.
A Successful Approach
Having been extensively researched by the scientific community, CBT has been proven successful over the years. Many believe this success is due to the approach to each client as an individual – one whose effective approach to stress reduction may differ from another person’s equally fruitful approach.
There’s an End in Sight
Perhaps best of all, CBT only takes a certain amount of time to complete, as long as you’re completing assignments diligently. You won’t be stuck in an endless loop of therapy sessions but can achieve positive results in as few as 5-15 sessions.

What is Emotionally Focused Therapy?
Men and women typically seek a romantic partner for love, closeness, comfort and support. Troubled couples find themselves caught in unhelpful patterns that prevent them from responding to their partner’s requests for attention and connection.
Emotionally focused therapy can help you identify the negative cycles you get into and through emotion-focused interventions help you respond to your partner in a way that creates new cycles that represent more harmony and a secure bond between you.
Emotionally focused therapy focuses on both the individual partner’s emotional experience and the interactions between the partners. Emotionally focused therapy helps the individual partner identify their feelings and needs and then share those feelings and needs with their partner in a way that invites positive responses.
Our psychologists will collaborate with you to find the links between your thoughts and behaviours, physiology and emotions, and – ultimately – your reactions. Your psychologist may assign you between-session “homework,” which is very important to the successful treatment of your anxiety.
