  • Therapies & Programmes for Adults

    After the clinical interview with the psychologist, we will derive a case formulation and a suitable treatment plan for the client. There are different therapies and interventions that can be used depending on the client’s condition.
    • Psychotherapies: Psychotherapy is a commonly used therapy since it provides a safe haven for the client to talk about the problem. It is a collaborative treatment which is based on the relationship of the client and the therapist, based on dialogue to obtain a clearer view of the situation. Some examples of psychotherapy include Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy and more.
    • Sand Tray Therapy: In sand tray therapy, various figurines will be chosen by the client, in which these figurines are arranged, moved, or played with within a tray of sand. Figurines such as people, animals, buildings, objects, and nature are provided, where the client will choose those that he or she feels connected to and use them within the sand tray. This therapy allows the client to create and project his or her inner world, expressed by the interaction of the figurines and the embellishment of the sand.
    • Expressive Art Therapy: Expressive art therapy (EAT) allows the client to freely expressive him or herself in any art form: drawing, painting, music, writing, or dancing. The client will be able to convey the thoughts and feelings that are hidden deep in him or her, and explore the reactions, responses and insights from the arts produced. The purpose of EAT is not to create a “beautiful” or “perfect” piece of art, but rather, serves as a medium for the client to communicate information that is hard to convey in words.
    • Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy: The aim of Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy is to help the members of the family to understand each other better, change damaging behaviours and sort out any disputes. It also aims to recognise an individual’s virtues and build upon these during the sessions. Members of the family will need to work collaboratively to achieve their goals.
    • Mindful Self-Compassion: Mindfulness refers to the ability of one to be aware of any experiences from one moment to the next and refers to being aware of the present moment, exploring and understanding emotion without prejudice. Self-compassion refers to the ability to comfort oneself in times of hardship, and to motivate oneself when faced with failure and suffering. By combining both the elements, the therapist helps the client to use a sense of awareness and self-worthiness.
    • Anger Management: During the therapy, the client will be able to identify the stressors that triggers the anger in them. The client will learn steps to manage his or her anger, controlling it without allowing the anger to take control.
    • Stress Inoculation Therapy: Stress Inoculation Therapy is a form of psychotherapy, in which the therapist will inoculate, or prepare, the client to manage a stressful event that could arise in the future so that the client is better at dealing with stressors independently.
    • Social Skills Training: Social Skills Training will help the client who is deficient or lacking in certain socialisation skills such as communication and other essential skills. Social skills training aims to help the client to improve overall relationships.
    • Couple Therapy or Marital Therapy: helps couples of all types recognise and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. Through therapy, couples can make thoughtful decisions about rebuilding and strengthening their relationships or going separate ways. The therapist brings couples together for joint therapy sessions so that they will learn skills such as open communication to discuss their differences and solving the problems rationally.
  • “Mindful parenting is the hardest job on the planet, but it’s also one that has the potential for the deepest kinds of satisfactions over the life span, and the greatest feelings of interconnectedness, community and belonging.”
    – Emeritus Professor Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn
