3 Types of Therapy Services in Redding
If you want to find a therapist but do not know where to start, here are three common therapy services. If the options seem overwhelming, contact us. Together, we can design a personalized path toward healing that works best for you.
Some therapists offer a blended approach that may, for example, use elements of cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, and solutions focused therapy.
- Cognitive behavioral therapy helps people identify thought distortions and process emotions
Cognitive based therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy that helps people recognize false thoughts and challenge their beliefs about themselves. CBT can help alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety. Its nickname is “therapy with homework” though to be fair, all therapy requires “homework” for people to get the most benefits.
- Dialectical behavior therapy helps people accept what they can and cannot change
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) helps people separate what they can and cannot control in their life and from there, work on mindfulness and radical self-acceptance. There is also an opportunity to learn more about the role of emotions in one’s life, via DBT.
- Solution based therapy is a goal-directed model best used for short-term support
Solution based therapy, also called solution focused therapy, helps people work toward a specific goal. If you know exactly what you want to work toward and want supportive help, this option works well.
