We understand the complexities of dissociative experiences and the impact they can have on your daily life.
Our dedicated team of therapists provides personalised care, working with you to develop effective strategies to manage dissociation and improve your overall mental health.
Our dissociation therapy services include:
Assessment and Evaluation: A comprehensive assessment of your unique symptoms, experiences, and needs helps us create a tailored treatment plan to address your specific dissociative symptoms.
Individual Therapy: Our compassionate therapists work with you one-on-one to explore the underlying causes of your dissociation, process your emotions, and develop coping strategies to manage your symptoms and enhance your well-being.
Cognitive - Behavioural Therapy (CBT): We utilise evidence-based CBT techniques to help you identify and challenge thought patterns that contribute to dissociation, empowering you to regain control over your mental state.
Trauma-Informed Therapy: Our therapists recognise the role of trauma in dissociative experiences and are trained in trauma-informed approaches, such as Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), to help you process and heal from traumatic events.
Mindfulness and Grounding Techniques: We teach mindfulness and grounding techniques to help you stay present and connected to your body, reducing the frequency and intensity of dissociative episodes.
What is dissociation?
Dissociation is a psychological process in which a person experiences a disconnection or detachment from their thoughts, feelings, memories, or sense of identity. It is often a coping mechanism that the mind uses to protect itself from overwhelming stress or trauma. Dissociation can occur on a spectrum, ranging from mild, everyday experiences to more severe forms associated with dissociative disorders.
Mild dissociation is relatively common and can manifest as daydreaming, "zoning out," or feeling detached from one's surroundings. This type of dissociation is usually harmless and temporary.
In more severe cases, dissociation can lead to dissociative disorders, such as dissociative amnesia, depersonalisation/derealisation disorder, or dissociative identity disorder (formerly known as multiple personality disorder). These disorders involve more significant disruptions in a person's sense of self, memory, or perception of reality, and can significantly impact daily functioning.
