CBT enables the individual to examine the meaning, values and interpretations given to situations and circumstance. It works with thoughts, assumption/conditional assumption, core beliefs and schemas and illustrates how these are attributed to self. It entails putting words to thought and identifies maintaining cycles with the use of patterns and imagery.
Di works with all problems that frustrates and blocks the quality of well being. Some of these problems have been depression, anxiety/stress, phobic disorders, abuse/trauma, panic attacks, addiction/obsessive compulsive disorder, anger, separation/loss/bereavement, body dysmorphia, low self worth/confidence, personal development.
Di offers a safe place from which to move on in life, to explore, discover and experience the journey in life with greater understanding, meaning and awareness. The approach applied is both cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness. Cognitive therapy draws upon behavioural and rational emotive theories and focuses upon the individual's environment, thoughts, beliefs, behaviours and feelings. It recognises how easily one can be driven by emotion and passions rather than rational reasoning. Cognitive therapy enables the individual to stand back from a situation and explains how individuals can move forward and link new information to existing knowledge. Mindfulness brings attention to the experience of the moment and works with the acceptance and the willingness to be.
CBT techniques include cognitive rehearsal, imagery, exposure, relapse prevention, mindfulness and draws upon the individuals own resources. Sessions are fifty minuets long. A commitment to six sessions is normally required before a process of reviewing. Regular reviews take account of the accomplishments and process as well as the therapeutic relationship. Endings are a part of this process and sensitively planned. In exceptional circumstances negotiation and arrangements can be made to meet at alternative safe venues and/or home visits.
