Approaches

We help clients achieve optimal functioning using a process that is flexible and individualized. We draw on different approaches: from those based on neuroscience (neuropsychology), to pragmatic, traditional therapies. We use these approaches because they work; we’ve seen the positive results.

Neuropsychology Approaches

Neuropsychology approaches can be effective for treating pervasive counterproductive struggles, trauma, relationship issues, and for enhancing goal attainment, motivation, and resilience.

At Coastal Mind, counselling using neuropsycholgy approaches is based on scientific research and therapies:

  • Complex Integration of Multiple Brain Systems (CIMBS)
  • Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB)

Traditional Therapies

Pragmatic, traditional therapies have been demonstrated effective for treating adjustment struggles (illness, career, school), depression, anxiety (including panic), stress and pain, interpersonal challenges, and for building self-esteem, hope, and relaxation.

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Mindfulness
  • Assertiveness and Non-Violent Communication
