We at the Jarrah Tree Practice have a special interest in recurrent mood and anxiety issues, and work predominantly from a Schema Therapy perspective. In practice, we see individuals with a broad range of concerns and tailor our approach accordingly.
Schema therapy is an emotion-focused therapy with an established evidence base for a number of conditions including trauma, personality disorders and chronic depression. As such, it may be particularly suitable for individuals for whom traditional CBT approaches have not resulted in sustained improvements.
Schema Therapy seeks to understand how an individual's current problems relate to core beliefs and early life experiences. Very often these links are unconscious. Understanding and healing these “emotional scars” from the past can be a powerful part of the therapeutic process. Click here to learn more about Schema Therapy.
While we are very passionate about Schema Therapy, we are also trained and well-versed in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. All of these approaches have been scientifically proven and have something profound to offer in the right context.
