Types of Therapy


Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is a type of therapeutic technique that helps people to change unhelpful or

unhealthy thinking habits, feelings and behaviours. CBT may be used to treat problems including anxiety, depression,

low self-esteem, uncontrollable anger and other problems.  CBT involves the use of practical self-help strategies,

which are designed to bring about positive changes in the person’s quality of life.

Solution focused brief therapy (SFBT) targets the desired outcome of therapy as a solution rather than focusing

on the symptoms or issues that brought someone to therapy. This technique only gives attention to the present

and the future desires of the client, rather than focusing on the past experiences.

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) involves sharing information and teaching specific concrete skills. With this

model, parents learn to understand and respond to their children's emotions and behaviors.  This technique is

especially helpful when dealing with children with intense emotions to help parents respond in helpful ways as well

help the child regulate their emotions.

The therapeutic approach used during counselling will depend on the type of presenting problem and  the

needs of the child and their family. For information about structured program run at HYM click on the link below;
