Is Schema Therapy suitable for me?

Schema Therapy is a distinctive approach that is not for everyone. As with all treatments, there are no guarantees that it will be effective for you. It may be suitable for you if:

  • You’re experiencing recurring difficulties in your emotional life, relationships or with certain problem behaviours;
  • You’re interested to understand the links between how you feel in the present and what you learned in the past;
  • You haven’t benefited from other approaches such as Counselling, Psychoanalytic / Psychodynamic therapy or symptom-focused CBT;
  • You aren’t primarily interested in learning coping strategies or looking for a quick fix;
  • You’re interested in changing ways you have been thinking, feeling and acting for a long time;
  • You’re prepared to get in touch with difficult feelings and realise that effective therapy can be challenging;
  • You’re willing to work in a therapy relationship that offers you help to learn about your emotional needs;
  • You’re willing to consider changing aspects of your life if needed for healing.
