Free Clear Mind Therapy

Therapy Modalities

The team at Free Clear Mind specializes in various modalities. These approaches will be combined to help you achieve your therapeutic goals. Learn more about each modality below.

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a therapeutic approach that blends acceptance and mindfulness techniques with commitment and behavior-change strategies. It focuses on helping people embrace their thoughts, feelings, and emotions rather than suppressing, avoiding, or controlling them. Rather than focusing on what is outside of your control, you’ll instead focus on what you can personally control.

ACT is beneficial for a variety of mental health conditions, including trauma, chronic pain, eating disorders, OCD, anxiety, depression, and stress. It’s also a fundamental tool to improve overall well-being.

With the help of therapy, you’ll gain confidence in your ability to handle thoughts and feelings without needing to control them.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that is focused on helping individuals identify and manage the underlying causes of their mental and emotional struggles. CBT is a highly effective treatment method used to reduce symptoms associated with a range of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, eating disorders, and substance abuse. By examining the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, CBT can help individuals gain insight into how their thoughts create their feelings and behaviors, thereby empowering them to make lasting changes in their lives.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

DBT, or Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, is a type of therapy that has been scientifically proven to help individuals struggling with a variety of mental health issues. It works by teaching people mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness skills. DBT is most often used to treat borderline personality disorder, as well as anxiety disorders, depression, and eating disorders. With the help of a qualified therapist, clients can learn to become more skilled at managing their emotions and developing healthier relationships. DBT can be an incredibly powerful tool for those who are looking to gain control over their mental health and live a more fulfilling life.

Eye Movement desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a type of therapy intended to help people who have had traumatic experiences in their lifetime. During EMDR, a therapist will take you through guided eye movements and other forms of bilateral stimulation (e.g., tapping or tones) while you recall the traumatic event or negative thoughts you are seeking support for. Recalling the events or emotions this way can help reduce the distress associated with them. It is used for a variety of mental health concerns, including PTSD, other traumas, anxiety, and depression. The goals of EMDR include reducing the intensity of symptoms, improving emotional regulation, and increasing self-esteem.

Hakomi Therapy

Hakomi is a type of therapy that involves paying attention to what is going on in the body. For example, we might have someone focus their attention inside their body to find where the anxiety is located. What is it saying? Does it move around?

When we help individuals be mindful of how these states of mind feel, they aren’t as likely to fall prey to them. For example, if we identify that an angry part has shown up, and we know because we felt the jaw tense or the urge to push or punch, we can step back and watch the mindset. From this place, we have a choice point. With teenagers, it helps to do role plays, movement activities or take walks as we become aware of these different states of mind. We might have them draw the state of mind or anxiety. This helps externalize it.

To take it a step further, IFS Therapy, or Internal Family Systems, is a therapy where we unburden these states of mind by expressing them, naming them, and noticing the important role they play in protecting us.

Internal Family Systems (IFS)

Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy is based on the idea that the mind is made up of multiple sub-personalities or “parts”. Each of these parts has its own viewpoints, emotions, and characteristics.

In IFS therapy, the therapist will help the client identify and understand each of the parts that make them whole. By deepening the relationship with each part, there is an opportunity to gain insight into the patterns and beliefs causing distress.
IFS is used for a variety of concerns, including trauma, depression, anxiety, and interpersonal relationships. It can also be used for personal growth, self-understanding, and self-development.

Start feeling more whole by understanding the “parts” that make you you!

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Mindfulness-based therapy is a therapeutic approach that integrates mindfulness and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). It aims to help individuals cultivate awareness and acceptance of their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. The goal of mindfulness-based therapy is to reduce the distress caused by thoughts, emotions, and experiences to improve overall well-being. The exact approach will depend on your needs and your therapist. However, you will be encouraged to engage in meditation and/or mindfulness practices. This may include breathing exercises, mindful movement, and body scans. As part of mindfulness-based therapy, you may be asked to work towards identifying and challenging negative thought patterns so you can develop positive coping skills. This modality is used for a variety of mental health concerns, including anxiety, stress, depression, and chronic pain. By creating an increased sense of connection to the self and others, you can experience a greater sense of purpose in life.

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a collaborative approach to therapy that focuses on identifying and achieving goals in the present while keeping the future in mind. SFBT is widely used to help people with a range of psychological and emotional conditions such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, relationship issues, and more. It is based on the belief that clients are experts in their own lives and have the capacity to resolve their own issues. By focusing on what’s working and what can be changed, SFBT offers a positive outlook and a sense of empowerment that can help clients achieve their desired outcomes quickly and efficiently.
