Our Therapies

Each and every young person who walks through our door is unique. That’s why through consultation with them and their families we design individual treatment plans tailored to suit each client.

Typically, this will involve one, or a combination of the following therapies:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

This is a form of talking therapy that provides you with practical coping mechanisms for dealing with ‘here and now’ problems. CBT is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle.

Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that emphasizes acceptance as a way to deal with negative thoughts, feelings, symptoms, or circumstances. It also encourages increased commitment to healthy, constructive activities that uphold your values or goals.

 Compassion Focussed Therapy

This is used to help people overcome feelings of shame or self-criticism. It encourages you to learn how to treat yourself and others with compassion by using a range of techniques, including mindfulness and compassionate imagery.

Psychodynamic Therapy

This type of therapy digs into how prior experiences unconsciously shape your current behaviours and feelings. It uses techniques such as self-reflection and self-examination to help you gain insight into your life and present-day problems.

If at any point we feel that your child would benefit from a different type of therapy, we are able to refer patients to other trusted clinicians and practitioners within our network such as psychiatrists and occupational therapists.

MB Psychology is proud to work in collaboration with the Giaroli Centre and their team of specialist neurodevelopmental psychiatrists in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of neurodevelopmental conditions.
