Treatment Modalities

At The Therapy Centre, we work in a Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic (CBT) modality. The specific therapies utilized are Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

CBT is based on three principles namely of thoughts, emotions and behaviours. Each of these in turn activates the other. An example of this would be: a person feels totally worthless (emotion), and thinks to him/ herself: “I am such a useless person” (thoughts). Because of this thinking pattern the person then decides either to withdraw from others as he/ she becomes depressed (emotion) which could further result in self-harm or suicidal behaviour.  (behaviour). Please note: the example just given is in an extreme case as not everybody who feels depressed or who is feeling worthless, commits suicide. The example merely indicates the relationship between the principles.
