In brief: All psychotherapy

All psychotherapy uses neuroplasticity, because it helps you see things in different ways.
For instance, in cognitive behavioral therapy you review your habitual thought patterns & how they lead to painful emotions like anxiety -- new alternatives are introduced. Although it isn't automatic at first, you can learn to question catastrophic thinking. Good book: "the mindful way through anxiety.".
