THERAPY 
METACOGNITIVE THERAPY (MCT)
cognitive therapy cape town
MCT is a relatively new therapy approach. It's efficacy has been demonstrated in a wide range of studies. MCT is based on the principal that many psychological disorders such as depression and anxiety are caused by a pattern of extended thinking called the Cognitive Attentional Syndrome (CAS). CAS is driven by unhelpful underlying meta-beliefs such as "I must worry in order to cope". The CAS pattern consists of verbal thought chains of worry or rumination, fixed attention on the self and on threat as well as unhelpful coping strategies. Metacognitive therapy aims to remove the CAS by helping people find more effective and flexible ways of of focusing their attention and relating to negative beliefs and thoughts. In the process, unhelpful underlying beliefs are modified resulting in an alleviation of psychological distress.​

COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL
THERAPY (CBT)
cognitive behavioural therapy
CBT is a relatively short-term,  solution-focused approach that equips clients with skills to solve current difficulties. As a client, you would  play an active role in this structured therapeutic process which focuses on identifying unhelpful thoughts and behaviours in order to develop healthier skills and habits. CBT has been researched extensively, and has demonstrated effectiveness for many different problems and psychiatric difficulties.  Additional therapeutic approaches involving CBT include Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).​​

Psychodynamic therapy cape town
PSYCHODYNAMIC THERAPY
Psychodynamic therapy aims to explore and understand the psychological roots of emotional distress. Self-reflection is encouraged to better understand the influences of the past on present patterns of thoughts, emotions, behaviours, self concept and relationships. At times, unhelpful patterns can lead to painful emotions and a feeling of being stuck. If unhelpful patterns are identified and understood, new ways of relating to self and others can start to develop. As psychodynamic therapy is insight orientated, it can facilitate this process.​
