Therapy

Good therapy is a place where you can not only reduce distressing psychological symptoms, but also learn about yourself, improve your relationships with others and build resilience.

 

At The Psychology Hub our therapists are all registered Health Professionals who have undertaken many years of study. They provide evidence-based treatment for clinical problems and are able to tailor your treatment based on your individual  or family’s needs.

Eating Disorder Treatment

The Psychology Hub have number of clinicians who specialise in using Evidence Based Treatments for Eating Disorders. Such treatments include Family Based Treatment for Adolescents and Individual Cognitive Behaviour Therapy- based treatment for adults.

 

Due to the medical implications of eating disorder behaviours your GP will be required to be involved in treatment to provide medical oversight.

 

Our dietitians are highly experienced in working with eating disorders and an appointment with them is recommended as a starting point.

 

Please note that the South Island Eating Disorders Service offer publicly funded treatment for eating disorders and your GP can refer you to this service.

Gender Affirming Care

All of our clinicians at The Psychology Hub are committed to providing gender affirming care.

 

Providing gender affirming care and improving the psychological care of transgender people is an emerging area of interest for our clinicians. We are committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment and to developing and improving our knowledge and skills to provide the best care that we can.

 

Some of our clinicians contract to the CDHB and provide psychological care under the Transgender Wellbeing package. Some of our clinicians can provide readiness for hormones or surgery assessments. A GP referral is required to access these services. To identify which clinicians offer this funded pathway, please select the “Rainbow” tab on the main page.

EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.

 

EMDR therapy does not require talking in detail about the distressing issue or
completing homework between sessions. EMDR therapy, rather than focusing on changing the emotions, thoughts, or behaviors resulting from the distressing issue, allows the brain to resume its natural healing process.

EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain.

For many clients, EMDR therapy can be completed in fewer sessions than other
psychotherapies.

 

EMDR therapy helps children and adults of all ages. Therapists use EMDR therapy to address a wide range of challenges.

Many of The Psychology Hub clinicians provide EMDR therapy as a stand-alone treatment or alongside other treatment models based on individuals needs. At times, our clinicians may also provide Group EMDR therapy for specific issues.
