Some of the components are generalizable to other therapies, however, when we look at as a whole; they establish a specific describable model of therapy (Guthrie, 1999). PIT is a relational therapy, which focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the patient. Hobson (1985) determined six qualities of this relationship, which he thought were at the core of psychotherapy. The exploratory rationale, shared understanding, focus on here and now, focus on difficult feelings, gaining insight and change.
The primary purpose in psychodynamic counselling is to release repressed emotions and experiences so as to make the unconscious motives conscious. That is, to enable individual to review feelings, thoughts, early-life experiences, and beliefs to gain insight into current problems and patterns of behaviour. It is stated that by identifying recurring patterns, the individual may perceive the ways in which they avoid distress or develop defense mechanisms as a method of coping so that they can take steps to change those patterns (www.goodtherapy.org). Freud’s stage of psychosexual development (and Erikson’s psychosexual stage of development) is a framework that the counsellor may use for the understanding of key developmental tasks characteristic of the various stages of life. The core principles of psychodynamic approaches to counselling include: The belief that early childhood experiences and past events, often unconsciousness, determine how people feel about themselves and their world.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) a goal that is established for a short period that is positioned psychotherapy treatment that take hand-on actual approach to problem solving. This goal also is establishing to change the way a client behaves or think and change the way a person may feel. (CBT) help clients become
Bateman and Fonagy (2004) later defined Mentalization as “the mental process by which an individual implicitly and explicitly interprets the actions of himself and others as meaningful on the basis of intentional mental states such as personal desires, needs, feelings, beliefs and reasons” (Bateman & Fonagy, 2009). To effectively “mentalize”, one must imagine the thoughts and feelings of others; hence, mentalization is a mental process. Quality of mentalization is superior when one is genuinely aware that it is not possible to know what is in someone else’s mind (Bateman & Fonagy, 2004). Based on the content and process of mentalizing, Bateman and Fonagy (Bateman & Fonagy, 2004) categorized mentalization into three dimensions: firstly, two modes of functioning (i.e., implicit and explicit), secondly, two objects (i.e., self and other), and

Therapists are there that are also known as an all-knowing guru, ideal lover, or a master of person’s fate. In the report, “Transference” by Goodtherapy.org, it believes, “Proponents of psychoanalysis believe that transference is a therapeutic tool that is crucial in understanding an individual’s unconscious or repressed feelings.” This creates an understanding of how an ability of one person can heal one’s unconscious feelings. In short, therapy is there to help a person if they’re dealing with a type of transference that they can no longer handle on their
A case formulation helps organize information about a person, particularly when that information contains contradictions or inconsistencies in behavior, emotion, and thought content. Ideally, it contains structures that permit the therapist to understand these contradictions and to categorize important classes of information within a sufficiently encompassing view of the patient. A case formulation also serves as a blueprint guiding treatment and as a marker for change. It should help the therapist experience greater empathy for the patient and anticipate possible ruptures in the therapy alliance (Safran, Muran, Samstag, & Stevens, 2002; Samstag, Muran, & Safran,
Then, the information Andrew gathers is used to draw an anxiety cycle (triggers, responses, symptoms, safety behaviours) and introduce CBT as a scientific process where he could test the validity of his safety behaviours and his distorted thoughts. In particular, the therapist helps Andrew to articulate his negative thoughts that are associated with his anxiety (fear of looking like a fool) by asking him to complete the
By assisting patient realizes the unidentified field, analyst encourages patient to face the supposed dangers. In psychoanalytic not all patients respond positively to the influence of the analyst. That is due to an unconscious shifting of conversion of emotional attachments. Thus, analyst must give a patient any indulgence; he may wish or deem and from him. As a result, the patient is disillusioned and soon the negative conversion adapts in.
Cognitive Therapy (CT) or Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) was pioneered by Dr. Aaron T. Beck in the 1960s, while he was a psychiatrist at the University of Pennsylvania. Having studied and practiced psychoanalysis, Dr. Beck designed and carried out several experiments to test psychoanalytic concepts of depression. Fully expecting the research would validate these fundamental concepts, he was surprised to find the opposite. As a result of his findings, Beck began to look for other ways of conceptualizing depression. He found that depressed patients experienced streams of negative thoughts that seemed to arise spontaneously.
A brief ACT Observer Exercise is provided to the client in order to enhance her willingness and to change the function (meanings) of her private experiences (thoughts, feelings, and memories).

The third part is stress inoculation training during this stage therapy tries to reduce the symptoms by teaching them how to reduce anxiety. Kyle after his fourth tour goes and sees a therapist that he talks to and he says, “What haunts me are all the guys that I could not save,” so the therapist mentioned that down any of the hallways there are plenty of soldiers that need saving. Although the therapist is not exposing Kyle to what he experienced he gave an alternate since
Exposure is a longstanding hallmark for many behavioral therapy programs which aim is to target anxiety. During exposure, the individual is exposed to a situation that would typically cause an overwhelming amount of anxiety; the individual is then taught to remain in the uncomfortable, other than reverting to typical strategies of avoidance situation until anxiety begins to decrease. In CBT programs used specifically for stuttering treatment, exposure is used to practice fluency in anxiety-ridden situations in a

Mindfulness provided these individuals different ways at living with their pain and the stress their physical illness brought into their lives. After careful observations of Jon Kabat-Zin Segal, Williams, & Teasdale believed, that mindfulness training could be used along with CT to create a relapse protocol for depression. MBCT is a group based treatment for recurrent depression in which participants learn how to develop an abiding nonjudgmental awareness to their experiences internally and externally (Segal, Williams & Teasdale, 2013). MBCT focuses on helping clients learn new ways to adapt to a new way of being and relating to their thoughts and feelings, while placing little emphasis on altering or challenging specific cognitions (Segal, Williams, & Teasdale, 2013). For example, the mindfulness practices allows for someone to sit with their breath and focus on just their breath and as distraction occur a person brings awareness and accepts to this occurrence but then redirects themselves to the breath.
