The psychologist utilises the Cognitive Therapy Model as her preferred treatment for adults and children. Specifically Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT)
These Therapies are commonly used in Western countries delivering psychological services. Aaron Beck and Albert Ellis/Dr. Maultsby were the founders of these therapies. The basic premise of CBT is that our thoughts create our feelings and our behaviours not the situation.
Most of us are taught or believe that it is 'other people' and 'events' that cause us to feel 'lousy' or 'upset', but in CBT & REBT/RBT you are taught that this is not the case. Rational thinking is the aim of these 2 models as we learn that our own 'upsetness' is caused by faulty or unhelpful cognitions (thoughts).
Problems such as Depression, Anxiety, Phobias, Interpersonal conflict, Parenting difficulties, Post-natal Anxiety & Depression, Pain and Weight problems can be treated successfully with CBT and RBT, REBT.
