why people seek our help

People come to psychotherapy for different reasons. Francis is a leading expert in the treatment of traumas. While his specialisations include the treatment of depression, anxiety, grief and loss, and conflicts in relationships, he helps people with most issues that they experience.  Here is a list of some of them: suicidal thoughts, stress and burnout, insomnia, chronic pain and other somatic issues, ADHD, Aspergers, anxiety, worry, panic, OCD, depression, sadness, loneliness.

Psychotherapy offers powerful and effective help in dealing with them. The problems that people experience may be diverse but their goal in therapy is the same – end of their suffering and the experience of happiness and freedom.

“If you only have a hammer,
you tend to see every problem as a nail.”

Abraham Maslow

Therapeutic Modalities

Respect for the person who needs help for a problem requires of us the ability to vary the approach to what they present with rather than only the therapeutic approach a therapist is trained in.

At the de Mello Institute we are able to vary the approach to the needs of the clients. We employ a wide spectrum of therapies that include: Gestalt Therapy, Focusing-Oriented Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Body-Oriented Psychotherapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, Trauma Release Exercises (TRE), Dreamwork and so on as Somato-Emotional Release, Braddock Body Process, Formative Psychology, Lomi Somatics, Bioenergetics, Gestalt Body Work, Bio-Psychology, (TRE) Trauma Release Exercises, and Hakomi Mindfulness-Centred Somatic Therapy and incorporate them in our work.

What makes our approach effective is not just the methods we employ but the integration of awareness into all our approaches to help people most effectively.

therapeutic relationship

Therapeutic Relationship

Basic to the therapeutic relationship is the therapist-client bond where you are able to heal the wounds of life, to understand and integrate life experiences, learn new life skills and self-acceptance.

You can communicate openly and freely given the confidential nature of the communication and the non-judgmental acceptance of another person who combines compassion with wisdom and skill. This is what we all need for our healing and this is what we offer.

what helps our clients to change?

Goldfish Jumping

Our clients make rapid transformation because we work together towards that end. Our clients are helped to take responsibility for their change. We instil in them the optimism and the belief that they can change.

Awareness makes it possible for them to acknowledge their need for change, take responsibility for the process and work towards the goals. To experience change, we have to be convinced we can change and take responsibility for it.

Awareness makes it possible for us to make our approach positive and solution-focused rather than problem centred. It also makes them realise that the quickest route to change is not through their minds but through their bodies.
