Belinda has extensive training in a range of intervention models. This enables her to work in a client focused way, selecting from her toolbox the intervention most suited to each individual client. Models of therapy frequently used: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution Focused, Interactive Drawing Therapy, Expressive Therapies, and Play Therapy. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy gets its name from two core aims: 1. Helping people to accept what is out of their personal control, and 2. Helping people to commit to actions that enrich their lives, and are consistent with their values. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a cognitive behavioural therapy (or CBT) that teaches people psychological skills to handle distressing thoughts and feelings more effectively so that they have less influence on their lives. These are known as mindfulness and defusion skills. ACT also helps people to clarify what’s truly important to them, and to use that knowledge to guide and motivate them to take action.
