At the Brisbane Harmony Centre, your first appointment will involve a detailed assessment of your current difficulties and your life history.
We will work with your goals and values to develop a therapeutic plan that addresses your current needs. This plan will evolve over time as you develop new skills and perspectives, and begin to heal yourself.
The Brisbane Harmony Centre offers treatment for adults. Here are some of the therapies that we practice with some details about how they work:
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
ACT helps people to identify their core values, and encourages people to commit to living according to those values in the here and now. ACT teaches mindfulness, and specific mindfulness techniques to help to get people unstuck from problematic thoughts and feelings, and to focus on living in the moment, working and engaging in a valued life.
- Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)
This mindfulness based therapy involves specific techniques to help people to offer more compassion to themselves. There is evidence that people who meet life’s challenges with an attitude of kindness towards themselves enjoy greater wellbeing, as compared to those who blame and criticise themselves for their difficulties. CFT helps you to develop a compassionate attitude towards yourself, and be a true friend to yourself in times of hardship.
