Schema Therapy for Longstanding Issues

Very often our clients are stuck in longstanding repeating life patterns.

  • In the area of relationships, they might always become involved with partners who are unable to commit, or who are overly domineering, or the person may continue to feel uncared for despite having a loving and committed partner.
  • Patterns can also emerge in the area of achievement – in a person who always pushes themselves to attain perfection at work and in their life outside work.
  • Another common pattern we see is that the person may have always felt socially isolated and different and had trouble forming friendships, or have suffered chronic low self-esteem, feeling defective and inferior to others.

At Brisbane City Psychologists we  have a particular interest in providing a form of treatment for these clients called Schema Therapy.
