Mentalization Based Treatment

Mentalizing is the process by which we make sense of ourselves and each other. Mentalization helps to make sense of our own and other people's thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and intentions. Mentalizing is something that we do all the time and it underpins all relationships. For some people, mentalizing is more difficult, especially in certain situations, which can be a cause of distress. Mentalization Based Treatment aims to improve the capacity to mentalise and help alleviate the difficulties associated with borderline personality disorder, depression, trauma or drug addiction.

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

Psychoanalytic approaches are longer term, exploratory psychotherapies that have a focus on the unconscious causes of distress and mental health difficulties. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy is not about solving problems or learning new skill, but involves a more profound process of searching and getting to know oneself. The result of therapy can be achieving a deeper level of self-acceptance, self-knowledge and personal growth that is long lasting.

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy has been found to be an effective treatment for recurrent depression. Mindfulness has also been applied to help manage stress, as well as physical pain.

Mindfulness is about paying attention to one's experience, on purpose, moment by moment and without judgment. Developing the skill to be mindful can help with difficult feelings, distressing thoughts and to make better decisions in life. 

Mindfulness groups may be beneficial for people experiencing depression, anxiety, or those, who would like to learn a better way to cope with stress.
