Guilford Psychological Services: Compassionate therapy, scientifically designed
When we study why therapy works, it is primarily because both client and therapist experience a spirit of collaboration and shared goals, while also feeling understood. But collaborative, compassionate therapy is not always enough. There are certain experiences, thoughts, emotions, and challenges that more efficiently and effectively respond to specific strategies. In those cases, the science of psychology offers us an abundance of options we can use to help. Decades of psychological literature point us towards strategies that work: our therapists are trained in empirically supported approaches, including mindfulness-based approaches for anxiety, depression, and trauma, dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy, prolonged-exposure, and much more.
If you are feeling sad, anxious, confused, and you are unsure of what to do next, if you are feeling bad, there are things we can do together that will help.
All of us at GPS bring a balance of compassion and a practical understanding for the science of our field. We are kind, genuine, compassionate people that want to know who you are and how you are doing to better select the therapeutic strategies that will work for you. This combination of compassion and science is the uniqueness of GPS. Therapists here know that compassion and science are at their best, together, and that this combination is the quickest way to relief… and to feeling better.
