Couples counselling course

Sunday, May 16th, 2021 | News

Just released a new course: Couples Counselling using Systemic Family Therapy. Helping couples is a different process to individual psychotherapy as there are two sets of needs and emotions to manage, but also that the relationship itself has emergent properties that need to be handled.

Metacognitive Therapy course

Saturday, March 6th, 2021 | News

Metacognitive Therapy (MCT) is an evidence-based psychotherapy looking at cognition. While Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) traditionally looks at what we think, MCT looks at how we think. It explores meta-beliefs such as needing to worry to keep ourselves safe, whether change is possible, and whether thoughts can be harmful.

When we understand the neural systems that lead us to engage in these cycles of worry and self-doubt, we can give the client (or ourselves) new processes to avoid engaging in these unhelpful patterns.

Metacognitive Therapy is highly effective at reducing worry and rumination and proven to reduce anxiety, PTSD, OCD and depression. In this course, we will learn what MCT is, how it works, how to use it in practice and how to apply it to each condition.
