Our Psychotherapy Program

For the past decades, I have encountered people who experienced suffering. Children and teenagers, women, and men, the rich and the poor, the young and the aged, blue-collared and white-collared, Christians, Buddhists and Muslims.... They taught me one very precious lesson; that is, as human beings, everyone suffers from their own limitations and that I am not an exception. This lesson has become the foundation of the Tree Group’s psychological services, and we believe that it is our calling to help people relieved from their pain and suffering with advanced psychological knowledge and treatment."

Psychotherapy and Evidence-based Treatment

It has become more common for people to utilize psychotherapy to improve their psychological well-being and their quality of life in modern days. Affluence and success do not guarantee satisfaction in our lives, while a balanced inner life and emotional stability have drawn attention as vital aspects of a healthy lifestyle. In the past decades, scholars and psychologists have rigorously studied and developed various psychotherapy treatments to fulfill the needs of a healthy lifestyle. 
 
Psychotherapy aims to assist a person with developing the skills and tools to lead a successful life by fostering new insights into one’s life and by acquiring new patterns of behavior with the help of professionals. Many people experience the reduction of emotional distress in the process of psychotherapy. Psychotherapy treatment allows for significant positive changes in people’s behavioral and emotional symptoms. By following a specific treatment, long-term results are possible and the changes that the program fosters will become permanent. The only treatments with such proven effectiveness are known among professionals as Evidence-Based Treatment. 

 

Many clinical and educational programs around the world are now training talented individuals with genuineness and sincerity. As qualified professionals, they are expected to observe the guidelines of professional ethics to protect human beings. Our Center is committed to providing only evidence-based psychotherapy which follows the ethical guidelines of the American Psychological Association

It is our mind, it is our pain and suffering
Only we can lower our suffering and balance our inner life
New choice, new path, and new future
Changing the course of your mind's behavior and learning new skills with the help of professionals

Psychotherapy vs. Evidence-based Psychotherapy

Essential Elements of Successful Psychotherapy

Clients’ Readiness

The most essential element

of successfully relieving your emotional distress is to be ready and willing to overcome their difficulties. This process can only begin when they accept that there are aspects of their life that require change which would ultimately lead to a healthier lifestyle. The readiness of clients have been proven as the most crucial element of successful psychotherapy by numerous research.

Psychotherapists’ Character & Clinical Experience

The second most important element

is the basic character of a psychotherapist. The educational degrees, certifications and licenses only serve as minimum requirements. Humane character with genuineness and sensitivity, the employment of professional ethics and dedicated supervised clinical training are the most essential elements of being a good psychotherapist.

Psychotherapy with Clear Scientific Evidence

The final element of a good and successful psychotherapy

is to be proved of its effectiveness. After a certain period, you must experience a reduction of symptoms or a significant improvement in the quality of your life. The efficacy of psychotherapy treatment should be scientifically studied and tested by hundreds of rigorous studies and with proven valid results, we can then conclude that the psychotherapy treatment is Evidence-Based Treatment.

Unlike adults, children and adolescents often find it difficult to express their emotional or behavioral struggles. As such, the parents and teachers also have trouble understanding what they are going through.

 

We examine and identify the core issues of a child through accurate and scientifically valid diagnosis and apply evidence-based treatment programs. Those programs are internationally recognized in the field of psychotherapy with the latest and most effective interventions that are scientifically and clinically proven over numerous research studies with clinical application. We provide an open treatment system where the parents can freely participate and observe the treatment sessions. The parent’s participation in the program, particularly for a child, is crucial; they learn and apply the effective and consistent parenting style that will alleviate the symptoms of the child and promote effective behaviors and thoughts over time.

 

We invite you to join us in our treatment programs that are based on the highest standards of scientific evidence available and experience the confidence of receiving the best care.
