One of the most important aspects of psychological treatment is having an engaging relationship with your psychologist. If you don’t “click” within the first few sessions, treatment is unlikely to be effective.
It’s also important to find the method of therapy that suits you best.
It's one of the most widely used and well-known talking therapies. It is based on the assumption that the way a person feels is closely related to the way a person thinks and the way they behave.
To change a person’s feelings, a psychologist providing CBT will help that person engage in different activities that can help to change thinking and behaviour patterns.
ACT targets a person’s tendency to avoid things.
It focuses on the control that a person has in their life, how it was interrupted, and how it can be restored. It uses the conversation that develops in therapy, based on the individual's perspective of their problems, as the main “technique”.
This type of therapy responds to how a person is functioning “right now” in the session as they’re talking to the psychologist.
