Schema focused therapy

Schema focused therapy is an evidence based treatment model which is one of the recommended treatments for long standing depression and interpersonal problems (recommended by NICE – the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence).

This therapy aims to assist the patient to change unhelpful coping strategies which might have been developed early on in life and to step out of self-defeating patterns of thinking and behaviour.

During the first stage of therapy, the patient gains a better understanding of the origin of these negative patterns and how they have been maintained. In assisting the patient to use their new found understanding to change the old patterns, our therapists might use techniques from other therapeutic models to help develop new skills and coping strategies.
