Some of our Specialties

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a short-term, problem-focused form of behavioral treatment that helps people see the difference between beliefs, thoughts and feelings, and free them from unhelpful patterns of behavior. CBT is much more than sitting and talking about whatever comes to mind during a session. CBT sessions are structured to ensure that the therapist and the person in treatment are focused on the different goals of each session, which in turn ensures that each and every session is productive. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events – rather than the events themselves – that determines how he or she will feel and act in response. If you or someone you know would benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy, please reach out today. We would be happy to speak with you about how a Mindfully Healing therapist may be able to help.

Clinical Hypnosis (Hypnotherapy)

Clinical Hypnosis is sometimes referred to as Hypnotic Relaxation Therapy (or HRT) because it involves the use of relaxation, mental imagery, and suggestion for a therapeutic purpose. HRT involves learning how to use your mind and thoughts in order to manage emotional distress (e.g., anxiety, stress), unpleasant physical symptoms (e.g., pain, nausea), or to help you change certain habits or behaviors (e.g., overeating, impulsivity).

Why People Lie in Therapy: Unveiling the Truth

Therapy is a powerful tool for healing and personal growth, providing individuals with a safe space to explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. However, its not uncommon for people to lie during therapy sessions. This phenomenon raises an important question...

Depression Risk Reduced 44% By This Amount Of Exercise

Even relatively small amounts of exercise can help reduce the risk of developing depression. Only one hour of exercise per week is enough to help prevent depression, new research finds. In the largest survey of its kind, the anxiety and depression levels of 33,908 Norwegians were monitored for more than 11 years. The researchers concluded that just one hour of exercise a week reduced the chances of developing depression by a massive 44%. Dr Samuel Harvey, the study’s lead author, said: “We’ve known for some time that exercise has a

The Three Types of Stress

Stress is a normal part of life. And a little bit of stress can actually be a good thing. For instance, when we lift weights, we are stressing our muscles, helping them to become bigger and stronger. Similarly, little bits of mental stress can help us become more skilled and resilient. But too much of […]

This Wonderful Spice Is Superior To Antidepressants

Spice extract has fewer side effects than pharmaceutical antidepressants (includes suggested supplements and dosage). Extract of saffron, the exotic spice, is a safer alternative to pharmaceutical antidepressants in mild to moderate depression, recent studies find. Saffron has fewer side effects and is just as effective in some cases. The conclusions come from a review of six separate studies that included 230 clinically depressed patients. Using saffron as an antidepressant was compared with both Prozac and Tofranil (generically known as fluoxetine and imipramine). All the studies were high-quality randomised controlled trials

The Simpler Talk Therapy That Treats Depression Effectively

The talk therapy that is quicker (and cheaper) than cognitive-behavioural therapy. Depression can be more simply treated by behavioural activation therapy, a new study concludes. Behavioural activation therapy is a more straightforward alternative to cognitive-behavioural therapy — the gold standard of depression treatment. Clinical depression affects around 350 million people around the world, but only a fraction receive the best care. Behavioural activation therapy could be a good alternative that provides access to therapy for more people. The therapy itself focuses on encouraging people to take part in meaningful activities

Counseling for Trauma

Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster. While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed. In these circumstances, the support, guidance and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.
