Bala Cynwyd Group Psychotherapy

Groups usually consist of six to ten members who have been carefully selected by the therapist who will facilitate the sessions. Just as therapists are committed to confidentiality, group members must also be willing to maintain the privacy of what is shared in the group sessions. The natural empathy and altruism brought to the sessions by participants is what spurs the healing process, and the empowering nature of Bala Cynwyd Group Psychotherapy allows patients to take a more active role in their therapeutic process. War veterans, sexual abuse survivors, and those who have experienced similar trauma may all benefit from the Bala Cynwyd Group Psychotherapy offered at Nurse Leadership Builders.

The Bala Cynwyd Cognitive Behaviovral Therapy at Nurse Leadership Builders consists of a fixed number of sessions which normally range from eight to twenty; occasionally, a patient may require a lesser or greater number of sessions to receive the maximum benefits of this therapy. This is an action-oriented treatment, and patients are usually given assignments to complete between sessions. Over the course of the therapy, the patient learns to recognize and replace self-defeating thoughts and actions with more realistic and positive ones. This therapy is frequently used to treat anxiety disorders, certain mood disorders, and insomnia.

Bala Cynwyd Behavior Therapy

Bala Cynwyd Behavior Therapy is a structured form of therapy that works to create objective and measurable changes in the patient's daily life. The therapy works by employing a system of reward for positive action, and much of the Bala Cynwyd Behavior Therapy's healing work is done directly by the patient outside of the therapy sessions. The goal of this therapy is to clear the environmental roadblocks that can prevent one from nurturing the life the heart's deepest desires. The old refrain of, "some day, I will" is replaced by "today, I am". In addition to helping many patients create a more satisfying life, this therapy is remarkably effective for those with developmental disorders who are not able to participate in therapies requiring a greater level of self-awareness.

Bala Cynwyd Body Oriented Psychotherapy

Bala Cynwyd Body Oriented Psychotherapy, also referred to as Somatic Therapy, regards mental illness as an imbalance that manifests itself on the physical, as well as emotional, level. Because it takes a physical form, mental illness can also be remedied through the body. Bala CynwydBody Oriented Psychotherapy uses a combined approach of verbal communication and structured physical activities to inspire emotional healing. When a patient experiences depression or anxiety, these emotions can manifest in the form of body tension, teeth grinding, irregular breathing and unhealthy posture. Nurse Leadership Builders's specialized therapists use breathing, posture, mindfulness, and other physical exercises to help a patient become aware andcapable of healing their emotional state. Bala Cynwyd Body Oriented Psychotherapy is effective precisely because it uses multiple entry points into understanding the human psyche and moving toward total integration.

Bala Cynwyd Integrative Therapy

Individual therapies can offer highly effective treatment for certain specific illnesses. However, there is often a combination of mental illness and other factors, both mind and body centric, that affect an individual seeking treatment.

Bala Cynwyd Hypnotherapy

One of the strikingly effective therapies offered by Nurse Leadership Builders is Bala Cynwyd Hypnotherapy. It is important to note that although hypnosis and Bala Cynwyd Hypnotherapy are similar pratices, they are not identical. This powerful therapy, often used in conjunction with other therapies for maximum benefit, uses classical hypnosis techniques administered by a specially trained mental health professional in order to achieve therapeutic benefit to the patient. In addition to treating mental disorders such as Major Depressive Disorder, Dysthymia, and Substance Abuse Disorders, this therapy can also be used to help ease the chronic pain of those who suffer from physical ailments such as arthritis and fibromyalgia. Contrary to popular understanding, hypnosis will not cause a person to act against their own will. Rather, it can be used to assist in revealing the patient's true wishes and remove obstacles blocking the road to personal fulfillment.
