Over 25 years as a pioneer in the field of psychology has allowed Cairnmillar to develop a different approach to traditional therapies through cutting-edge research and proven results. The cornerstone of this is Contextual Modular Therapy (CMT), a unique method developed by Cairnmillar’s founder Dr Francis Macnab to address a range of personal and relationship issues. Having helped many people over many years, this approach is marked by collaboration with the therapist, allowing you to take an active role in building a better life for yourself.
CMT brings together several schools of psychology including cognitive, dynamic, behavioural and the holistic existential. A practical and solutions-focussed approach, it examines the context of your concerns, tapping into unconscious influences and mapping out any anxieties. It explores the process behind your thinking, memory, emotions, behaviour and words, giving particular focus to their impact and working toward their effective management.
Over six monitored sessions, you and your therapist work together to develop a plan with actionable steps to improve various aspects of your life. With a strong emphasis on helping individuals uncover their personality strengths and identifying issues, CMT has been a crucial step in the right direction for couples, children, adolescents and families alike.
