Struggling with relationship issues, depression, anxiety and/or a personality disorder? Schema therapy may be right for you.
Schema therapy combines theories and practices from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), psychoanalysis, attachment theory and emotionally-focused therapy. You’ll work with your therapist to understand your schemas, break negative patterns of thinking/behaving and find positive ways to cope.
Schemas (sometimes called early maladaptive schemas) are long-lasting and unhelpful patterns that usually develop when your 'core' emotional needs are not fulfilled in childhood. Some of these 'core' needs include:
Maladaptive schemas developed in childhood - and the coping behaviours you developed as a young person to deal with them - can contribute to problematic coping methods and behaviours throughout life, if they aren’t addressed.
