Video Transcription

Schema Therapy is a very popular therapy these days because it is incredibly effective, but also it is the therapy that you would use for people that have had therapy before but it actually didn’t work. So the scope of people would tend to be that it isn’t a first approach so we tend to use. It tends to be a therapy that we tend to use when people have experienced a form of a therapy but actually it hasn’t been enough for them, predominantly people that had CBT and it wasn’t enough for them. And the scope of people tends to be people that do have quite a lot of sort of difficulties that are relational. Also, people that sometimes might have an incredibly high-functioning life and very high-functioning careers but actually feels a sense of emptiness or feel that life doesn’t have any meaning that they find it very difficult to connect to important people in their life or in important relationships. Those would be the main people that Schema Therapy would be most beneficial for.
