Mindfit is inspired by cognitive therapy and EMDR, but also by the more general communication and therapy techniques used in psychology.
Regardless of the treatment approach, a patient’s first meeting with a psychologist includes time where the patient describes his or her problems, identifies goals and then works towards change. One of the central aspects of the work involved in bringing about change is finding the motivation you need to continue to try to change. This is especially important given that change takes time and usually consists of both progress and setbacks.
Maintaining motivation requires a focus on mastery and on what you actually achieve, a fact that is well recognized by many different therapies.
This is especially highlighted by research that has been done on positive psychology, where patients are encouraged to have a greater awareness of their strengths and resources rather than their vulnerability and illness. [···]
