What fascinates me about schema therapy is the variety of methods we can use. But the best thing about schema therapy is the warmth and empathy for the client that is at the heart of this approach.

When working with children and adolescents, we use creative, playful and age-appropriate schema therapy techniques. 

When we work with parents, we often go beyond counseling and education and help parents to overcome their own distress, unhelpful patterns and family of origin issues, and learn to get their needs met and meet their children’s needs.

In my opinion, schema therapy is the most comprehensive, empathic, and effective therapy approach that I know of. It is fascinating to see how well my clients engage in schema therapy and how well it works for them on a behavioral level as well.
