Schema Therapy

Schema therapy is an innovative psychotherapy that integrates the active, structured elements of cognitive behavior therapy with the more depth-oriented and emotion-focused strategies of psychoanalytical and gestalt therapies, into one unified, systematic approach to treatment. Our therapists are highly trained, skilled and experienced in Schema therapy. This therapy has been found to be particularly effective with psychological presentations that are not readily resolved with short-term psychological interventions, such as personality disorders, chronic depression, complex trauma, eating disorders, and other difficult individual and couples’ problems.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment that works to help individuals identify and challenge unhelpful thinking and behavioural patterns to bring about positive and swift changes to one’s quality of life. CBT has been found to be particularly helpful in treating anxiety disorders, depression, substance use issues, problem gambling, and eating disorders. 

Mindfulness-Integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Mindfulness-Integrated CBT is an evidence-based treatment that combines the ideas of cognitive behavior therapy and meditative practices and attitudes. It has been found to be effective with a broad range of psychological disorders and general stress conditions.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based approach that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies with behaviour-change interventions to increase psychological flexibility. ACT helps individuals live and behave in ways consistent with personal values and is helpful with a wide range of psychological disorders and general life problems.

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) is a powerful psychological intervention that is well established in the treatment of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). There is growing evidence for the use of EMDR with other psychological issues, such as depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, complicated grief, disturbing memories, panic attacks and phobias, 


Family Systems Therapy

Family Systems Therapy uses behavioural analysis and other interpersonal techniques to examine family and couple relationships with the aim of implementing systemic change and thus providing for more meaning and contentment in relationships.
