Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
is a form of psychotherapy used to treat a range of mental disorders, including depression and anxiety. It works to address and change unhelpful thinking patterns and behaviour that contribute to low mood, anxiety and stress.
a maladaptive schema is an enduring underlying set of beliefs that one may have about themselves, others or the world around them that is self-defeating. People who have maladaptive schemas may engage in coping styles that are ultimately unhealthy and problematic. Schema therapy helps people to resolve maladaptive schemas and develop healthier and more adaptive coping styles.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy – ACT
Acceptance and commitment therapy is a therapy that combines mindfulness, acceptance and letting go strategies in order for them to accept the things that are out of their control. It also encourages people to commit to actions that will help them reach their potential and lead more value-driven fulfilling lives.
Eye Movement Desensitisation Restructuring- EMDR

- anxiety and panic attacks
- performance anxiety
- sleep problems
- feelings of worthlessness/low self-esteem
