Mindoc is a boutique psychiatry practice with patient-centeredness at its heart. Originally coined by the American psychologist Carl Rogers, patient-centered practice is rooted in the belief that every human being has the capacity to reach it’s highest potential and that the best way to understand an individual’s behaviour is to view it from the individual’s own eyes.
Mindoc’s adaptation of this philosophy is to put the patient and their experiences first, provide a non-judgemental environment of hope, positivity and belief in the human potential to overcome adversity. Mindoc believes that validation of patient experience is the key to successful treatment outcomes using either medicines or psychotherapy.
However, one must differentiate it from a form of psychotherapy of a similar name which is not provided at this clinic.
