Nōmina is one of Canada's only providers of Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) — a highly specialized form of psychotherapy. ISTDP focuses on exploring and resolving emotional processes rather than solely focusing on behavioural patterns, enabling us to identify and address the root causes of emotional distress swiftly. By leveraging the somatic signals of the body, ISTDP fosters heightened personal awareness and facilitates profound change.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) equips individuals with essential skills to manage emotions and cultivate healthy relationships. It focuses on mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. Mindfulness fosters awareness and acceptance, while distress tolerance teaches strategies for coping. Emotional regulation helps manage intensity, and interpersonal effectiveness improves relationships.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a highly effective talk therapy that transforms behaviours, thoughts, and emotions by untangling negative beliefs. CBT empowers individuals to control their emotions and behaviours by challenging and reframing negative thinking patterns, leading to positive changes in their well-being. CBT's evidence-based approach provides practical tools for daily life, fostering emotional well-being, improved relationships, and overall quality of life.
Direct Neurofeedback (DNF) is an innovative therapy that applies low-strength electromagnetic currents directly to the brain. It has been shown to be effective in treating mental health disorders like anxiety, depression, PTSD/OSI, addiction, ADD/ADHD, chronic stress, autism, concussions, and other brain injuries. By modulating neural activity, DNF promotes brain regulation and improves symptoms. Research supports its effectiveness in enhancing the quality of life, cognitive function, and emotional stability.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) is a specialized approach that reduces negative emotions tied to traumatic memories using rapid eye movement. Through bilateral stimulation, EMDR organizes both negative and positive emotions, thoughts, and sensations, integrating new perspectives and healing painful memories in the present. Individuals reprocess traumatic events by engaging in bilateral stimulation, desensitizing emotional intensity, and releasing negative emotions.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a mindfulness-based approach that promotes acceptance of life's challenges and fosters behavioural changes for psychological flexibility. By accepting difficult thoughts, emotions, and sensations, individuals redirect their focus to align behaviours with values and goals. ACT reduces avoidant coping and encourages value-driven actions, cultivating resilience and adaptability. Mindfulness techniques enhance present-moment awareness and non-judgmental observation, fostering compassion and well-being.
