Considering that no two people are the same, Oasis Counseling Services uses tools from various schools of therapy to tailor therapy techniques to your specific needs. These techniques include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Mindfulness-Based Therapy (MBT) and Hypnotherapy. Which techniques utilized depend on the therapeutic issues a person presents with.
Several components differentiate CBT, SFT and MBT from more traditional talk-therapy:
Present-focus: Instead of focusing on the past, current problems are the main target of treatment.
Emphasis on strengths, not weaknesses: Traditional talk therapy views change as a process in which someone’s issues are viewed and treated from a negative perspective in order to improve them. Alternatively, CBT, SFT and MBT recognize that everyone has a mix of strengths and weaknesses.
Goal oriented: The aim of Solution-Focused Therapy is to help people identify small, achievable steps toward their goals, and provide support through completing these steps, one step at a time.
