The Rhythm2Recovery Model

The Rhythm2Recovery format is an integrative model of practice combining experiential therapy techniques with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) influenced by the third wave approaches of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Positive Psychology (PP). These newer cognitive approaches are strength based, and focus less on exploring problems and more on finding solutions. Although the R2R model owes much to the influence of these new cognitive approaches, it differs critically in balancing the cognitive with experiential, thus reducing the reliance on language, while simultaneously creating a safe and often uplifting therapeutic experience. Developmental & neuro-imaging studies show that for many people who enter therapy, highly active primal brain areas (limbic system, brain stem) are driving behaviour while the thinking, rational part of our brains (frontal lobes) are less active. (Van Der Kolk, 2014).
