Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a widely used and evidenced-based type of therapy. CBT is based on this insight: What we think affects how we feel, which influences what we do. In Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, counselors help clients identify nonproductive thinking patterns about themselves, others, or the world. Afterwards, counselors help clients heal and replace these patterns with new patterns and self-supporting thoughts. The Circles of Life describes a CBT intervention used by the therapists at CCM Counseling & Wellness.
The Circles of Life
Unique to CCM Counseling & Wellness is the enlightening approach to discover who we are. This approach, called Circles of Life, changes and enriches a person’s life. Creator Marcia Thompson used Circles of Life effectively and successfully with clients for 30 years.
Circle patterns can be found many places in nature. In this case, these circles tell the story of the tree and its environment. Besides the age of the tree, the circles give insight into the growing conditions experienced by the tree. The circles reflect drought or adequate moisture. To the expert eye, the circles reveal when the tree endured climatic trauma, disease, or a long growing season.
The Circles of Life tool helps us connect to our personal story. It helps us understand why we do what we do and why we respond the way we do. The tool also outlines a road map for lasting change. Circles of Life helps people uncover thinking patterns that no longer serve them well. In turn, they develop healthier thinking patterns that sustain positive growth and change. Circles of Life is easy to understand, non-blaming, and biblically sound.
Psychologist Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, author of “The Body Keeps the Score,” documents the importance of expanding therapy beyond traditional talk therapy. Clients often benefit from some form of trauma processing, inner child healing, mindfulness practice, energy healing, or body-centered work. Complementary Therapies enrich a person’s therapy experience. Check them out for yourself.
