UNDERSTANDING THE HUMAN MIND 

 

WE POSESS THE RELEVANT CLINICAL KNOWLEDGE WHICH IS APPENDED WITH OUR SPECIALISED APPERCEPTIVE PROGRAMS 

WE HANDLE BOTH MEDIUM TO MODERATE AS WELL AS SEVERE END OF THE CLINICAL SPECTRUM. 

PHENOMENOLOGICAL APPROACH

Headstride's approach to clinical presentations is hermeneutical and phenomenological and not from a disorder standpoint.

 

We go for the observed phenomena, a direct investigation and description of experience in contrast to causal and unexamined presuppositions and meanings. For this we use Existential Phenomenological and Cognitive Psychology routes.  

SELF-CONTROL IS SOMETHING FOR WHICH I DO NOT STRIVE.

SELF-CONTROL MEANS WANTING TO BE EFFECTIVE AT SOME RANDOM POINT IN THE INFINITE RADIATIONS OF MY SPIRITUAL EXISTENCE. 

- Franz Kafka
