This program was developed in collaboration with an international team of doctors, psychiatrists and psychologists, integrating the most successful scientifically proven protocols from:
- Cognitive solution focused therapy (SFT)
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Systemic therapy & family therapy
- Rational emotive therapy (RET of REBT)
- Ericksonian hypnotherapy
- Self-management techniques from the MBA program from the Vlerick School
You can decide yourself how long you want to follow this program:
- 1. To gain insight into what solutions can help you, you will need about 1 month. if you find that to be enough, you can unsubscribe and stop to continue your journey without our guidance.
- 2. To practise these insights and skills until they have become a habit, you will need another month.
- 3. The third month you will learn how to prevent relapses. If you believe that you can continue on your own with all the knowledge provided, you can stop here. If you want to play it safe, we can continue to guide you.
- 4. In the next months, you can strengthen your relapse prevention, while we offer you the opportunity to bring more enjoyment into your life. Our experience is that our clients experience a lot of energy and life joy around this time, and that they once again start to pursue old life goals which they had given up on before. These life goals can be both professional and private goals. So, while you work on deepening your relapse prevention, you start seeing your new dreams more clearly and taking action to make these dreams reality. We can guide you in this, and you yourself choose at what point in time you let go of our guidance. This is something you do by simply unsubscribing electronically in your dossier. This unsubscription will be completely automatic, so the control over this decision is all yours! We have both clients who stay with us for only 1 month, as well as clients who choose to continue growing and realizing more and more ambitious dreams.
No, it offers much more.
Yes, this program does contain several e-learning modules, especially in the first part where we include some theory to give a background.
The effect of this program, however, goes beyond that:
- 1. This program helps you to more efficiently reflect on your own habits (thoughts, behavior, and feelings) with the goal of creating new insights and habits, which will lead to more pleasant feelings.
- 2. Once you have gotten the hang of this formula for success, we will help you to practise the new habits until they happen subconsciously and automatically.
- 3. After that, we teach you how to prevent relapsing.
These 3 goals cannot be reached with e-learning alone.
- 1. After two weeks or so, most people see that they have more good moments than before, and that they slowly start to get a grip on their problem, even though there will be ups and downs.
- 2. By the end of the first month, it will become clear how they can solve their problem. By the end of the second month they start to notice that the solutions become new habits – on the condition that they effectively do their daily practising, of course.
- 3. After three or so months, most participants have gained the same effect which successful psychotherapy offers.
- Those who continue beyond this, can prevent relapses themselves, or immediately correct them. This can also be done in cooperation with their life partner or family members. In this phase you will also realize that you have more energy to use to start new things in your life, or to take up old dreams again and start to work toward making these dreams come true.
- 1. By asking solution based questions regarding
- tangible solutions in the present and
- what you want in the future (as soon as you are ready for this).
- 2. By focusing on what already helps, and doing more of this.
- 3. By finding out what does not work for you, and doing less of that.
- 4. By building up the confidence to look for solutions on your own.
- 5. By replacing inefficient habits by more useful habits.
- 6. By teaching new skills.
- 7. By not digging into the past without need.
- 8. By teaching self-reflection and how to look for own solutions.
