What you can expect at our first appointment?

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a cornerstone of Dr. Thai’s therapeutic approach. Grounded in the understanding that thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected, CBT focuses on identifying and challenging negative thought patterns to promote positive changes in behavior and emotional well-being. Dr. Thai employs CBT techniques to help clients gain insights into their thought processes, develop coping strategies, and cultivate healthier patterns of thinking and behaving.

In addition to CBT, Dr. Thai utilises mindfulness with his clients, supporting them to intentionally pay attention to the present moment, without judgment.

Dr. Thai’s integration of CBT and mindfulness reflects his holistic and client-centered approach to therapy. By drawing on the strengths of each modality, he tailors his interventions to meet the unique needs of each individual. Through collaborative and goal-oriented sessions, Dr. Thai guides clients in navigating challenges, building resilience, and achieving positive outcomes.
