FAMILY OR FRIENDS
Do you struggle to know how to effectively provide support for someone you love who is experiencing mental health concerns? Often family members could benefit from consulting and/or ongoing support regarding their loved one. Please do not hesitate to be in touch if you would like to gain skills to respond to those around you who are in need. You may also need some support yourself as we need to put the oxygen mask on ourselves before we can provide support to those around us.
HOW WE CAN HELP
COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment which explores the interconnections between your thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and physical sensations. Specific strategies are used to understand, and modify, your thinking patterns and behaviours. Strategies may include behavioural exposures, thought records, and relaxation approaches.
DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (DBT)
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment originally designed for people struggling to regulate their emotions, such as those with Borderline Personality Disorder. DBT, like CBT, has its roots in behaviourism, with a focus on understanding our behavioural patterns. For people who struggle to regulate their emotions, DBT effectively integrates specific strategies such as distress tolerance, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and mindfulness. At Fairmarc Psychology Centre, we are currently only set up for individual DBT. Please contact us for suggestions on Toronto based clinics who provide full comprehensive DBT programs, including DBT skills groups.
ADDITIONAL THERAPY APPROACHES
Mindfulness approaches are integrated into much of our work at Fairmarc Psychology Centre. Mindfulness involves non-judgmental awareness of the present. Some clinicians might start off each session with a brief mindfulness exercise or suggest that you extend mindfulness into your life outside of sessions.
In addition to CBT and DBT, our clinicians are trained in a variety of additional approaches to therapy, including:
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
- Emotional Focused Therapy
- Humanistic Therapy
- Interpersonal Therapy
- Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
- Motivational Interviewing (MI)
- Person-Centered Therapy
- Prolonged Exposure Therapy
