Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
CBT is a traditional therapy technique that helps clients explore the relationships between their thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Clients work at identifying and dismantling their self-destructive thought patterns. The National Alliance of Mental Illness reports, “Studies have shown that CBT actually changes brain activity in people with mental illnesses who receive this treatment, suggesting that the brain is actually improving its functioning as a result of engaging in this form of therapy.”
Mindful Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MCBT) helps clients identify their habitual thought patterns, and reprogram the brain to respond neutrally to thoughts, rather than unwaveringly accepting thoughts. Mindfulness encourages self awareness and meditation. It works really well, not only with depression, but also those struggling with personality disorders, and suicidal ideation. According to the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, people have experienced clinical depression three times, and have been treated with MCBT, have a 50% reduced relapse rate.

Originally founded by Sigmund Freud, Psycho-Analytical Therapy gives clients an opportunity to discover how their early childhood experiences and unconscious mind have helped create their current situation. The purpose is to help bring unconscious and repressed emotions to the conscious mind so that the client can then deal with them here and now. This type of therapy is often used when treating deep emotional wounds. This is a longer course of treatment because you are getting pretty deep. This is great for people who want to delve into the origins of their emotional pain.
