I have used 6mm on brick with dot and dab (although I added mechanical fixings) but it did flex quite a bit the makers did not recommend it but I was stuck for space.
Not tried the foam but, if it is any help when I found it flexing I drilled extra holes in the boards and squirted a splodge of building adhesive through the holes to add stiffness that worked fine.

I used Marmox which has an insulating layer as it was a cold room with two outside walls, but any tile board should do, the Marmox might be overkill in your case.
