Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

This approach uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, mixed in different ways with commitment and behavior-change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility.

Art Therapy

This approach helps individuals express complex thoughts and feelings through art-making, which can lead to insights, stress reduction, and improved emotional well-being.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

This approach helps individuals recognize and change thought patterns that lead to harmful behaviors and negative feelings.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

This type of cognitive-behavioral therapy focuses on teaching individuals skills to cope with stress, regulate emotions, and improve relationships.

Existential Therapy

This therapy type centers around the belief that everyone is alone in the world, leading to feelings of isolation and fear, and therefore focuses on creating meaning and purpose in life.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

This therapy is used to treat PTSD and involves recalling traumatic experiences while receiving side-to-side eye movements, hand tapping, or auditory tones.

Gestalt Therapy

This therapy emphasizes personal responsibility and focuses upon the individual's experience in the present moment, the therapist–client relationship, the environmental and social contexts of a person's life, and the self-regulating adjustments people make as a result of their overall situation.

Humanistic Therapy

This approach focuses on individuals' capacity to make rational choices and develop their maximum potential. Client-centered therapy, Gestalt therapy, and existential therapy are three types of humanistic therapy.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT)

This short-term supportive psychotherapy is often used to treat depression and other mental illnesses by addressing interpersonal issues.

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

This approach combines cognitive therapy techniques with mindfulness techniques. It's often used to help prevent a relapse in depression.

Motivational Interviewing

This approach helps individuals resolve ambivalent feelings and insecurities to find the internal motivation they need to change their behavior.

Narrative Therapy

This is a method of therapy that separates a person from their problem. It encourages people to rely on their own skills to minimize problems that exist in their lives.

Play Therapy

This type of therapy is typically used with children to help them express what is troubling them when they do not have the verbal language to express thoughts and feelings.

Psychoanalytic Therapy

Based on the theories of Sigmund Freud, this approach explores how the unconscious mind influences thoughts and behaviors, with an emphasis on early childhood experiences.

Psychodynamic Therapy

This is similar to psychoanalytic therapy but is typically less intensive and shorter-term. It also emphasizes the recognition of negative patterns and distortions in thoughts and behaviors.

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)

This therapy type promotes positive change rather than dwelling on past problems. Therapists encourage individuals to focus on what they do well, set goals, and work out how to achieve them.

Systemic Therapy (Family and Couples Therapy)

This approach views psychological problems as arising from within the individual's present and past social systems (like family), and seeks to change communication and interaction patterns within these systems.
