Psychological therapy involves talking with a Psychologist and exploring one’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Strategies are then discussed to achieve more helpful thinking and behaviour, with the goal of reducing difficult symptoms, improving relationships and increasing emotional well being. Our psychologists utilise a range of approaches, drawing on best practice guidelines for each client’s concerns, as well as the client’s preferred therapy approach.
We use evidence-based treatment approaches, including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Solution-Focussed/Brief Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Schema Therapy and hypnosis.
Our psychologists draw on the Gottman Method, Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) and Stan Tatkin’s PACT approach to couples therapy, and use brain-based and attachment theory to inform our work with couples and families.
All Mindful Pathways Psychologists have completed as a minimum the Gottman Level 1 Training and use proven assessment techniques and intervention strategies to enhance couples' relationships.
