Cassidy Psychology uses a number of different treatment approaches that are carefully matched to clients presenting problems. Some of the well-researched and evidenced based treatment we use at the clinic are listed below.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT assists you to identify and challenge unhelpful thinking patterns that may be contributing to unpleasant emotions. CBT is a very well researched and evidenced based treatment for a variety of mental health difficulties.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
ACT is a new form of cognitive and behavioural therapy which can assist you to you to live a more rich and meaningful life. Its aim is to cultivate health, vitality and well-being through mindful values-based living.
Interpersonal Therapy (IPT)
IPT as its name suggests is designed to help manage interpersonal difficulties that may be associated with depression. IPT focuses on unresolved grief, role conflicts, role transitions and social isolation.
Schema therapy is an integrative approach to treatment that combines aspects of cognitive-behavioural, experiential, interpersonal and psychoanalytic therapies into one unified model. The goal of schema therapy is to help clients meet their basic emotional needs by changing self-defeating life patterns and learning new coping responses.
Circle of Security (COS)
COS is a relationship based early intervention program designed to enhance attachment security between parents and children. The COS intervention helps parents raise their children with love, warmth, and emotional intelligence.
