Emotion-focused therapy targets people’s emotional development and allows them to fully explore and understand their feelings. Discovering and recognizing the physiological, along with the mental, effects of emotions is part of this therapeutic modality. Psychoeducational methods are utilized when necessary to expand people’s knowledge of the wide emotional range they may experience.
Feeling overwhelmed happens frequently and can often lead to dysregulation. Mindfulness-based techniques help clients ground themselves by utilizing their breath and surroundings while aiding them in recognizing these feelings before they occur in the future. This modality operates by building awareness within the client and fostering an understanding of the physiological response to mental health issues.
