Schema Therapy was first developed as an innovative treatment for personality disorders and other persistent conditions. However, its benefit has been far reaching and can address a variety of conditions. This treatment focuses on identifying themes or beliefs that are established in early life with the view that these early ideas about oneself, others and the wider environment are elaborated throughout one’s life. These deeply held beliefs exist in all of us and are unconditional – meaning that they do not necessarily respond to rationalisation or challenging alone. Therefore, they require targeted assessment and moderate-term treatment to resolve.
