Originally called DOBT (depth oriented brief therapy), coherence therapy is based on the idea that our thoughts and behaviours are driven by our beliefs – our personal perceptions of the world – that are formed from an early age. These emotional beliefs are mostly stored in our unconscious minds and drive what we do and say, and how we think, without us even being aware of them. By finding the singular unconscious idea that supports a troubling emotional symptom, we can resolve it.
The suite of psychotherapy treatments provided by HHC Centre includes coherence therapy. This therapeutic method will help you identify, understand and ultimately resolve the underlying causes of emotional symptoms that are troubling you.
Coherence therapy has been shown to effectively help people with a variety of emotional problems. Examples include the following:
The Limbic System, which is sometimes referred to as the “emotional brain”, is the area of the brain responsible for feelings and emotions. It has limited communication with the cortex, which is responsible for logic, intellect and language. This suggests that traditional talk therapy, which primarily engages the cortex, might not be the most effective tool for lasting change. Many people are unable to access their emotions simply through conversation. In order to gain better insights into difficult and potentially harmful emotions, we need the ability to engage the Limbic System, or the emotional brain. We do this by ensuring that the therapy process includes a variety of modalities that engage both the cortex and the Limbic System.
In a coherence therapy session, you will be encouraged to challenge your existing emotional beliefs, enabling you to find and address the underlying causes of your symptoms.
In spite of being a relatively new therapeutic practice, cohesion therapy has been shown to produce fast, effective results in just a few sessions.
