Psychological therapy is the process through which we learn to understand our patterns of thought and behavior, and then learn to use these insights to enhance how we manage our feelings.
Psychological therapy is a stepped process that draws upon evidence-based intervention strategies and models to support clients to lessen their experience of distress. We work with tweens, adolescents, adults, older adults, and couples.
While there may be a commonly held belief that psychological therapy is long term, this is not necessarily correct.
At Merge Programs we are trained to deliver:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Problem Solving Therapy, Acceptance, and Commitment Therapy, Clinical Hypnosis, Emotion Focused Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Behavioral Activation, Person-Centred Therapy, and Couples Therapy.
Each of these frameworks supports clients to work through their symptoms in different ways, and as such therapy can be completed in a matter of weeks or longer.
As with all the work we do, we develop specialized treatment plans based on the individual and their symptoms and needs.
