Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
For more than 4 decades (and over hundreds of clinical trials), CBT has been clinically tested and proven to help treat many different mental health conditions. Today, CBT is considered to be the gold standard in evidence-based psychotherapy.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is about developing resilience and coping skills. CBT can be an effective way to improve your frame of mind. The concept behind CBT is recognizing the negative or distorted thoughts we have and understanding how realistic they actually are. Because our thoughts, feelings and behaviors can influence each other, we can change how we feel by identifying how they are related and what they trigger. CBT helps us manage our feelings, so we may develop a happier and healthier outlook on life.
Through mindfulness techniques, Luc helps clients bring awareness into the present moment and get in touch with their authentic selves. He has found that mindfulness can often be the gateway for greater healing and growth, as well as insight into ourselves and others. Through simple exercises, individuals can practice paying attention to their breathing in order to strengthen their ability to pay attention in their daily lives. Clients often report that mindfulness allows them to develop greater relaxation and awareness in their day-to-day experiences.
Research has shown mindfulness to be very effective for a variety of issues, including depression and anxiety.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
ACT is an action-oriented approach to psychotherapy that stems from traditional behavior therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. Clients learn to stop avoiding, denying, and struggling with their inner emotions and, instead, accept that these deeper feelings are appropriate responses to certain situations that should not prevent them from moving forward in their lives.
With this understanding, clients begin to accept their issues and hardships and commit to making necessary changes in their behavior, regardless of what is going on in their lives, and how they feel about it.
“Luc is very easy to talk to. For the first time, I have found a safe space to speak freely and be heard without fear of judgement and rejection. I am grateful for the compassion, care and treatment that I have received with Luc.”
“Luc provides an atmosphere of safety in a way that allowed me to openly cry which is an emotion that I have internalized most of my life. Luc is very intuitive regarding my internal needs and with the pace of the therapy process. He helped me find my peace and equilibrium, emotionally and spiritually. His humility and vulnerability in sharing some of his own difficulties made me feel thoroughly understood and appreciated. Luc gave me the tools needed to unfold my past and to move forward in the future”.
