Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP)

AEDP was developed by Dr. Diana Fosha and borrows from many common therapeutic methods, including body-focused therapy, attachment theory, and neuroscience. The aim of AEDP is to help clients replace negative coping mechanisms by teaching them the positive skills they need to handle painful emotional traumas. Dr. Fosha’s approach is grounded in a creating a secure attachment relationship between the client and the therapist and the belief that the desire to heal and grow is wired-in to us as human beings. Think this approach may work for you? Contact one of TherapyDen’s AEDP specialists today to try it out.

We can't change the past, but we can change how we feel about the past. This form of treatment "makes neuroplasticity happen", meaning that we can actually use your brain to change your brain. AEDP safely works with emotional experiences in the here-and-now of the present moment from the understanding that we can heal and transform our life by leaning into our emotions instead of avoiding them.

A good add-on to CBT, AEDP helps to anchor one's thoughts and beliefs in the here and now and to help make room for new beliefs and thoughts as they arise.
