Psychotherapy and Counselling
Counselling is a generic term for talking therapies of which there are many forms, usually distinguished by different qualifications and the approach to treating the client. At the Mind Body Clinic, we employ psychotherapists, clinical psychologists, CBT specialists and art therapists. Therapy sessions will involve the client and the therapist engaging in a secure relationship, working together to create a positive change in the client’s behaviour. Clinical psychology also employs talking therapy in addition to other advanced empirical-based techniques, which can be particularly useful for more complex conditions. Our clinical psychologists are qualified up to PhD level. Several of our therapists practice and employ cognitive behavioural therapy, or CBT, for clients specifically looking for this form of treatment.
What to expect
As a client, you will meet regularly with an experienced, qualified psychotherapist or clinical psychologist for sessions lasting 50 minutes. The content of your discussions is completely confidential and safe, and there are no wait times involved.
The professional will provide a secure and welcoming environment for you to help process and work on resolving difficulties that are unique to your circumstances. This relationship is one without judgement, but with complete respect and total acceptance.
You will be able to trust and rely on your therapist as an empathic, understanding companion who will “walk beside you” while you work towards achieving your goals. Whether the challenging experiences you are going through are from the past or present, your therapist will work with you, with an integrative approach that is unique to you and your circumstances. The working alliance that results through your relationship with your therapist, will be one that is empowering and supportive, striving to facilitate the change that will improve your overall health and wellbeing.
