Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a focused approach that psychologists use with those who feel that their lives are out of control. CBT has been extensively researched by the scientific community, and has been proven successful over the years. Pam believes that the success is due to working with each client exactly where they’re at – CBT allows for different approaches to stress reduction with equally fruitful results.
CBT can help give you the tools to deal effectively with day-to-day challenges that are causing you undue anxiety. You can also achieve positive results with CBT in as few as 3-10 sessions, as long as you’re completing assignments diligently, so you won’t be stuck in an endless loop of therapy sessions. Pamela will attend to what you specifically need and build a treatment plan that will work for you.
CBT is effective in treating:
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
Men and women typically seek a romantic partner for love, closeness, comfort and support. Troubled couples find themselves caught in harmful 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 that you may be in, 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 your emotional experience and interactions between you and your partner. Emotionally focused therapy helps you identify your feelings and needs, and then share those feelings and needs with your partner in a way that invites positive responses.
