This Month’s Featured Therapy Approach
Schema Therapy
Schema therapy was originally developed for people living with personality disorders, chronic depression and other difficult situations. It combines aspects of cognitive and behaviour therapy with object relations and gestalt therapy and, sometimes, with mindfulness practice. Today, schema therapy is offered to patients with a wide range of issues.

Whereas cognitive behavioural therapy per se is based on learning ways to change how we react and behave, schema therapy has a stronger focus on understanding how our experiences in early childhood have led to the behavioural patterns that we display today.

Schema therapy is predicated on four primary concepts, all of which are explained on our website.

More information about Schema Therapy can be found here: Schema Therapy
