Meta Learn is based on the relatively new evidence-based form of therapy called metacognitive therapy as well as effective elements taken from coaching. The metacognitive method was developed by the English professor and psychologist Adrian Wells. This method bases itself on a completely new understanding of the psyche and what contributes to psychological distress. Metacognitive therapy has shown itself to be a particularly effective treatment in response to anxiety, stress, and depression and is now used in multiple countries across the world.
Metacognitive therapy does not focus on the content of thoughts but focusses instead on the process in which these thoughts are conceived. Metacognitive therapy consists mainly of education in the form of using specific tools in order to learn to control ones thought process. The metacognitive method is therefore well-suited to group therapy as well as self-therapy through self-learning.
