The particular Group Metacognitive Therapy process has been developed in collaboration with Professor Adrian Wells and the results are indeed promising. Several thousand people have participated in group sessions and research show that Group Metacognitive Therapy has proven even more effective than individual therapy.
Feel better – faster
Metacognitive Therapy is a new way of treating psychological problems. The therapy is a short-term treatment focussing on minimizing certain mental strategies which backfire resulting in symptoms such as anxiety , OCD, PTSD and depression. These strategies primarily consist of overthinking, rumination, threat monitoring and thought-avoidance.
A Metacognitive Treatment Programme will normally last between 5-8 sessions. During these individual sessions, you will regain thought control. Disorders such as stress, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or depression are all fuelled by particular styles of thinking. You will learn to relate to your thoughts in a different way, which will allow you to spend less time ruminating and worrying. Most people experience that this change improves their overall quality of life by enhancing the ability to focus on meaningful life experiences rather than on symptoms and negative thoughts.
