Enhancing Mental Well-being
At Healthcode, we understand the crucial connection between mental health and overall well-being. That's why we offer a range of effective approaches to support your mental health, including innovative techniques and expert guidance from our Functional Medicine Doctor, Dr. Christina Botros.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a powerful therapeutic approach that combines elements of cognitive therapy and acupressure. By tapping on specific acupressure points on the body derived from traditional Chinese medicine, EFT aims to address emotional issues. Dr. Botros can guide you through this technique, helping you reframe negative thoughts, challenge limiting beliefs, and promote self-acceptance and positive emotions.
This technique can be helpful for the following conditions:
Anxiety and stress
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Food cravings and weight management
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) integrates mindfulness practices and cognitive therapy techniques to transform your relationship with thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations. With Dr. Botros’ expertise, you'll learn to develop present-moment awareness, engage in non-judgmental observation, and accept experiences as they arise. Through cognitive awareness exercises and guided inquiry, you can recognize negative thinking patterns and develop more balanced perspectives. MBCT is particularly beneficial for individuals with a history of depression, as it offers relapse prevention strategies.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a widely recognized form of psychotherapy that focuses on the interplay between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Dr. Botros employs CBT techniques to help you identify and modify negative or unhelpful thought patterns. By doing so, you can enhance your emotional well-being and make positive changes in your life. CBT also incorporates behavioral activation to increase engagement in enjoyable and fulfilling activities, improving mood and overall well-being.
