Do you...

  • Start to panic when someone you love leaves, or threaten to?

  • Find that no one truly understands you?

  • Often feel out of place even when you are in a room full of people you love?

  • Stop having hope that you will overcome your mental illness one day?

  • Find that no matter what achievements you have, you still feel dissatisfied and not good enough?

What is Schema Therapy?

Schema Therapy aims to meet the core emotional needs of clients in healthy ways through the reparative relationship with the therapist aka ‘Limited Reparenting’ process. The goal is for you to eventually have your emotional needs met both in and outside therapy. 

Your therapist will help you to identify unhealthy schemas and coping methods, replace them with healthier patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviour.

 

Research has found that it is used for the treatment of personality and mood disorders, and particularly useful for Borderline Personality Disorder.
 

"Schema Therapy has been shown to be significantly more effective than traditional treatments for a broad range of personality disorders, contributing to real recovery, not just symptom reduction" (ISST, 2019)
