Coherence therapy is a method of treatment that centres around the idea that our beliefs, which are formed from childhood, play a central role in how we think, act and respond to the world around us. All of us have complicated sets of beliefs and perceptions that are stored in our subconscious. They play a major role in how we live our lives, without us even being aware of them.
And so, if someone is suffering from an addiction or an eating disorder, of if they have anger management issues or relationship problems, it might be a result of a single unconscious belief. By uncovering that belief, we are able to find ways to challenge and ultimately resolve it.
Coherence therapy taps into the limbic system, a part of the brain that is responsible for the processing of feelings and emotions. The limbic system does not have strong links with the cortex, which is the centre for logic and language. This makes traditional talk therapy a challenge for people who find it difficult to tap into their feelings through language. Coherence therapy provides ways of engaging the limbic system so we can learn about the problematic emotions that lie in our subconscious or unconscious minds, so that we can resolve them.
