Islamically Integrated Psychotherapy (IIP)
Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy (SIP)
People can draw from psychological, faith-based, and spiritual perspectives to create and sustain a meaningful purpose in life. There is also space to examine spiritual disconnection and isolation to make meaning out of difficult life events. By facilitating a spiritual meaning making process, a therapist helps those suffering from chronic spiritual and emotional distress. A client may choose to use art, poetry, ritual, prayer, meditation, and mindfulness to express their spiritual emotions.
Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy draws on the resources of a variety of traditions, depending on the needs of the client. The coping methods learned have been linked to create a greater resilience and well-being.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. It is the most effective therapy for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The past wounds transform on an emotional level and the clients feel empowered by the very experiences that once weakened them. During EMDR therapy, the client attends to emotionally disturbing material in brief sequential doses while simultaneously focusing on an external stimulus, most commonly the therapist directed lateral eye movement.
It is a body-oriented therapeutic model designed for healing trauma and other stress disorders. This is approached by gently guiding clients to increase their tolerance for difficult bodily sensations and suppressed emotions.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy
This type of therapy diverged from the traditional model of the therapist as expert and moved instead towards a nondirective, empathic approach that empowers and motivates the client in the therapeutic process. The therapy is based on the idea that every human being strives for and has the capacity to fulfill their own potential.
Narrative Therapy seeks to be a respectful, non-blaming approach to counselling and community work which centers people as the experts in their own lives. It focuses on problem as the problem, not client as the problem. It empowers clients to re-author a strength-based narrative of their story.
