FAQs

Frequently asked questions

It's an approach to psychotherapy developed by Dr. David D. Burns, a psychiatrist and author known for his work in the field of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). TEAM-CBT incorporates elements of traditional CBT but also includes additional techniques and strategies aimed at providing more effective and efficient therapy.

Some key features of TEAM-CBT include a focus on empathy, therapeutic alliance, and collaborative problem-solving between the therapist and the client. It also incorporates methods to identify and challenge negative thought patterns and beliefs, often using a variety of cognitive techniques.

TEAM-CBT is designed to address a wide range of emotional and psychological issues and has been used to treat conditions such as depression, anxiety disorders, and relationship problems. It emphasizes the importance of tailoring the therapy to the individual needs of the client and can involve a combination of different therapeutic techniques to achieve the best outcomes.

Emotion-Focused Therapy is a type of counseling developed by Dr. Sue Johnson that helps couples understand and work through their emotions to improve their relationships.

EFT helps couples by:
1. Encouraging Emotion Expression: It creates a safe space for partners to express their feelings, needs, and concerns honestly.
2. Promoting Understanding: EFT helps partners understand their own emotions and each other's emotions better, fostering empathy and connection.
3. Resolving Conflicts: It guides couples in addressing and resolving conflicts by focusing on the underlying emotions driving those conflicts.
4. Strengthening Attachment: EFT aims to strengthen the emotional bond between partners, enhancing feelings of security and closeness.
In essence, EFT assists couples in building healthier emotional connections, improving communication, and resolving relationship issues by addressing the emotional dynamics within the relationship.

The duration of therapy varies among individuals. There isn't a set number of sessions that you have to attend. You and your therapist will work closely to develop goals, work towards those goals and evaluate progress.

A typical therapy session is 50 minutes. However, they can be shorter or longer depending on the circumstances.

Therapy sessions are confidential, which means that the information you share with your therapist is kept private. However, there are some exceptions to this confidentiality rule that therapists are obligated to follow in certain situations.

One important exception is when there is a concern for harm towards oneself or others. If a therapist believes that a client poses a serious risk of harming themselves or someone else, they have a legal and ethical duty to take action to prevent such harm. This may involve breaking confidentiality to ensure the safety of the individual or others. It's important to note that therapists will typically make every effort to work with the client and involve them in the safety planning process whenever possible.

Another exception pertains to the safety of children or vulnerable adults. If a therapist has reason to believe that a child or a vulnerable adult (such as an elderly person or someone with a disability) is being abused, neglected, or in danger, they are required by law to report this information to the appropriate authorities. This is done to protect the well-being of those who may be at risk.

In summary, while therapy sessions are generally confidential to provide a safe and trusting environment, therapists have a legal and ethical responsibility to breach confidentiality if there is a credible threat of harm towards oneself or others, or if there is a concern for the safety of a child or vulnerable adult. These exceptions are in place to ensure the overall well-being and safety of individuals and the community
