Gestalt Therapy, EMDR and Schema Therapy

Gestalt therapy promotes self awareness and self exploration through environmental support with the belief that growth occurs through awareness and authentic dialogue. A key focus is on supporting the client to relate, embody and live in here and now. The goal for clients is to become aware of what they are doing, how they are doing it and how they can change themselves and at the same time learn and accept to value themselves.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EDMR) is a psychotherapy treatment which is founded by Dr. Francine Shapiro. It is a treatment that facilitates the accessing and processing of traumatic memories and other adverse life experiences to bring these to an adaptive resolution.

Schema therapy promotes healthy secure relationships and self-care. It is developed by Dr. Jeffrey E. Young for use in treatment when clients fail to respond or relapse after having been through other therapies. It is a type of therapy that combines elements of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychoanalysis, attachment theory and emotion focused therapy and Gestalt Therapy and uses experimental techniques.

Emotional Focused Therapy

EFT is usually a short-term ( 8-20 sessions), structured approach to couple therapy by Dr. Sue Johnson. Research studies find that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements. In EFT the focus lies around promoting a safe and secure connection between partners. With the therapist’s help the partners get new insights into what causes the conflicts on a more emotional level in aid of finding new ways out of destructive patterns. The treatment promotes better communication as well as finding more supportive and positive ways of relating for long-term strengthening of the couple’s bond.
