Individual therapy starts with an assessment of the individual’s symptoms and then a diagnosis is given by one of our clinical psychologists or psychiatrists. They will identify specific root causes and will then work with the patient to identify targets and personal goals, whilst regularly tracking progress. When necessary, and with the consent of the caregiver and/or adolescent, our therapists will involve other support networks in the child’s or adolescent’s life (such as school, or other careproviders) to ensure they are well supported in every aspect of their lives.
Family therapy works to help family members improve communication and resolve conflict. Very much like individual therapy, family therapy starts by exploring the root causes of the conflict. It may involve the whole family or just those who are able and willing to participate.
For both individual and family therapy, our therapists use standardised and validated screening and diagnostic tools, along with evidence-based treatment modalities.
Types of therapy modalities used by our therapists:
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
Evidence-Based Trauma Treatment
