No one ‘treatment’ is the same …

My philosophical position towards my therapeutic work is that no one ‘treatment’ is the same, even though I notice patterns and correlations between clients’ presenting problems and their origin, which can inform the approach I take to therapeutic treatment. I am grounded in my belief that every course of therapy is uniquely co-created between therapist and client, given that every person is capable of making decisions and being self-agentic.

The MIND Institute is dedicated to the provision of personal and professional development services. It is directed by Dr. Matthew Shorrock (Chartered Psychologist, Executive Coach and registered Psychotherapist), and Francesca Shorrock (qualified Counsellor, Life-Coach and  Trainer). We offer native English-speaking services to expatriates and their families. Our services are culturally sensitive, and account the special challenges faced by the international community.

As a leadership and management coach, Dr. Shorrock is specialised in supporting managers, entrepreneurs and leaders develop charisma, authenticity and executive presence.

Dr Shorrock is also the clinical director of the International Centre for Internet Addiction, providing much needed support to people struggling with internet and screen addictions (including pornography and gaming addictions). As a leading researcher, writer and clinician, Dr Shorrock has spent the past fifteen years developing and implementing treatment programmes across Europe in this rapidly growing area.

We adopt an ‘integrative’ approach, which is underpinned by the highest standards in our ethical and research-informed practice.
