At Caloundra Psychological Services we focus on evidence based therapy which has been thoroughly evaluated by research.  This maximises the chance of assisting clients and minimises the risk of harm as these interventions have been shown to be effective.

The 2010 Evidence Based Psychological Interventions Review (Evidence-based psychological interventions: A literature review, APS 2010) identified Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) as having the highest standard (Level 1) for treatment of a number of mental disorders including:

  • Depression
  • Generalised Anxiety
  • Panic Disorder
  • Specific Phobia
  • Social Anxiety Disorder
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Bulimia Nervosa
  • Sleep Disorders
