Clinical Psychology

Psychotherapy services

Our psychotherapy services provide assessment and treatment to help people with complex difficulties, who are keen to understand themselves better..

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy (sometimes called “psychotherapy” or “counseling”) is a process through which clients work one-on-one with our trained therapist to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change. People seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma, to dealing with depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge.

Couple Therapy

Couple therapy deals with the quality of the relationship between two individuals who identify themselves as a couple through a long-term relationship or marriage. We first build a picture of the patterns that cause blockages by having initial individual consultations with each of the partners before bringing them into a collective therapeutic space. Once the therapist has a clear picture of what is happening they can create a safe space in which the partners can resolve pent up emotions and deal with complex feelings that have built up over time.

Family Therapy

Family therapy is a type of psychological counseling (psychotherapy) that helps family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. Family therapy is often short term. It may include all family members or just those able or willing to participate. Your specific treatment plan will depend on your family’s situation. Family therapy sessions can teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times, even after you’re done going to therapy sessions. Family therapy is provided by our psychologists.

Child Therapy

Essentially play therapy is psychotherapy for children. As children communicate by means of play, this is the most effective form to assist them with their feelings and understand what is concerning them. Play therapy however, does not mean that the child goes to the therapist to just play and have “fun” and neither does it necessarily mean that the child has to talk to the therapist in the conventional way. Children don’t have the necessary skills to have an in depth discussion with a therapist about what is bothering them, much like adults are able to. Play therapy is thus a means for the child to ‘talk’and/or communicate via playing and for the therapist to understand and to ultimately assist the child heal.

Group Therapy

Group psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy in which one or more therapists work with a small group of clients together as a group. Within the context of this very special therapeutic milieu, individuals are able to learn about communication, patterns of interaction, and interpersonal effects that they may have previously been unware of. Within the safety and privacy of the group and with the therapist’s facilitation, individuals can learn more effective ways of coping with their present circumstances.

Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance. The person’s attention is so focused while in this state that anything going on around the person is temporarily blocked out or ignored. In this naturally occurring state, a person may focus his or her attention, with the help of our trained therapist, on specific thoughts or tasks. Hypnosis is usually considered an aid to psychotherapy (counselling or therapy), because the hypnotic state allows people to explore painful thoughts, feelings, and memories they might have hidden from the conscious minds.

Psychological assessment

Psychological assessment is a process that assists in creating a holistic and integrated picture of a person’s functioning from an emotional, cognitive and interactional view.

A psychological assessment involves a clinical interview and a range of standardized and/or projective assessment techniques. This allows the psychologist to clearly identify the difficulties that a person presents with as well as their areas of strengths and weaknesses. Information from a psychological assessment can assist in exploring scholastic difficulties, high school subject choices, career guidance and behavioural difficulties.
