Consultant psychologist Elena Touroni describes the phases of Cognitive Analytic Therapy. Firstly it helps people understand how their history might explain their current difficulties, while phase two is about breaking patterns. Chelsea Psychology Clinic are a group of London psychologists and psychiatrists offering private psychological therapy and psychiatry treatment from their premises across central London and Chelsea. The private therapy sessions cover the following areas: – Acceptance & Commitment Therapy – Cognitive Analytic Therapy – Cognitive-behavioural Therapy – Couples Therapy – Dialectical-behaviour Therapy – Mentalisation Based Treatment – Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy – Schema Therapy https://www.thechelseapsychologyclinic.com
In Cognitive Analytical Therapy, people get an understanding of themselves and their patterns and relationships through something that we refer to as a reformulation letter. And they understand a bit about how the story of their life as they have told it to the therapist might result in the current difficulties that they’re facing in their life. And then usually in the second phase of the therapy, we have a change oriented phasing which we’re looking at breaking patterns in relationships and patterns that might have caused the individual difficulties throughout their lifetime.
