Behavioral TherapyLearn to question and alter persistent or limiting thoughts and beliefs, perceive and identify needs and feelings as well as articulating them Further Details
Behavioral therapy, like psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy, is one of the three therapy forms recognized and financed by health insurance companies in Germany.
In behavioral therapy, it is assumed that life is shaped by learning processes and ideas about the world. However, changes in one’s life may mean that previously successful strategies and attitudes aiding in leading everyday life cease to be of adequate benefit thus facilitating the onset of psychological or physical discomfort and problems. Behavior is understood not only as what we do and what thus becomes visible, but also what we think, feel and how we perceive physical reactions thereof. Thus, we also deal with basic assumptions we have about this world and our relationship with it.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is designed individually accommodating the uniqueness and significance of the problem. You will be guided and encouraged to develop a plausible explanatory model for the prevailing issues at hand. Psychoeducation helps to illustrate disorder models and their dynamics as well as to learn more about the therapy methods, allowing transparency in the therapeutic process.
You learn to question and reattribute persistent or disturbing thoughts, limiting beliefs, while enhancing your perception, identification and expression of needs and feelings. An important part of the CBT process is identifying and reactivating resources, which we all sometimes carry hidden within us, or to consciously discover them for the first time. A better connection to the body through mindfulness exercises, relaxation and breathing exercises is also achieved.
Through regular, concrete exercises that take place both in the therapy session and outside of it, you can help to deepen previously discussed situations.
