Types of Therapy
COGNTIVE BEHAVIOUR 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
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;
