If you are searching for a psychologist, make sure you choose one who is registered. A Registered Psychologist must undergo a minimum level of formal training and should continue to update skills and research knowledge throughout each career stage. CPCCPC has two registered Psychologists with extensive experience and practical, research-focused processes and therapies. Our in-house Psychologists are available for counselling, psychotherapy, corporate psychology and coaching, offering Gold Coast customers an outstanding combination of knowledge and care.
Graeme Deeth researches and practices in the areas of relationship functioning -both intimate and organisational, gender, sexuality and alternative relationships, body image/eating disorders and domestic violence.
Deborah Marshal-Deeth researches body image/eating disorders, and their specific effects on obesity, and grieving processes after loss. Graeme and Deborah have been professionally responsible for treatments and favourable outcomes for many CPCCPC clients.
We focus on two factors that improve client outcomes – the motivation of the client to make the changes and the quality of the relationship between the client and the therapist. Your willingness to work on your issues and developing a good rapport with your Psychologist will enable you to work toward your own success.
Research shows that no single therapy will do the heavy lifting required of psychological change. This means a professional, registered Psychologist must be proficient across a range of sub-disciplines and open to a variety of therapies. At CPCCPC, we choose from a number of therapeutic disciplines and collaborate closely with our clients to tailor approaches that suit their individual needs and goals.
The processes at CPCCPC have evolved out of years of clinical and academic research by our registered Psychologists and have seen us move away from the medical model of disease, and purely clinical modes of treatment. We believe our clientele are more than capable of learning the knowledge they need to aid their psychological wellbeing. Therefore, we do not look upon our clients as “patients” in need of “treatment”, but as individuals who need the opportunity to access and apply well-researched knowledge.
The CPCCPC model of Psychology gives our clients control over how he/she will interact with our therapies. Many people spend less time at our offices in face to face sessions, and more time updating their knowledge and communication skills with the help of our ebooks and other materials. This approach is cost effective because our services are only utilised as required.
CPCCPC has private, friendly rooms on the Gold Coast with a team committed to improving your wellbeing through careful, professional diagnosis. We have a range of resources available to our clients and visitors to our site.
