Rupture resolution in cognitive analytic therapy for adolescents with borderline personality disorder

Anne-Marie offers an integrated approach to the problem or conflict one brings to therapy. This involves working with a combined cognitive, behavioural and emotional focus on difficulties. Therapy looks at how ones’ thinking and behaviour impacts on functioning and interpersonal relationships, with a specific focus on emotional experience and building tolerance to difficult emotions as therapy progresses. This approach incorporates the theoretical models of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Experiential Dynamic Therapy and Emotion Focused Therapy. Anne-Marie’s work also emphasises client feedback on the therapeutic relationship and the factors that affect the process of therapy.
